Brides in the Bath Model Identified

As you may have seen in previous posts I have shown an unseen film titled ‘Brides in the Bath‘ starring June Palmer and various other models including Teri Martine.  I’ve been able to identify the main models in the film, but there were several unidentified models also appearing in the film and until now they have remained unnamed!  Thankfully one of the models, shown in the two roles below has now been identified.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Can-Can Girl No.3 (?)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Mistress (Same as Can-Can Girl No.3?)

 
 
The model playing both of these roles has been identified as Christine Jenson/Jensen by none other than Teri Martine herself!  Teri took time last week to look at this site and the video itself and identified Christine. Unfortunately Teri doesn’t remember doing the film herself and in her own words – ‘Now I have something to share with you. I don’t remember doing one scene in the video!!!!!! not one, how could I not remember being in such a fun movie?’. Teri also mentions another model Samantha Seager, but doesn’t directly identify her in the film, but another name to research!
 
I must thank Teri for taking the time to look at this site and the video’s and identifying Christine and filling another blank for me. It comes as a great honour and pleasure that someone like Teri has taken an interest in the site and enjoyed looking back through it and that it brought back such wonderful memories of the models she used to work with back then!
 
Teri also took time to look at my site and that it made her very happy to see a site with lots of her friend June!  Great praise indeed and makes it all worth while with what I am doing!

Thanks Teri!

Brides in the Bath – Part 2 (Video)

So as promised part 2 of the full version of ‘Brides in the Bath’.
This film was based loosely around the true life story of serial killer and bigamist George Joseph Smith.  I won’t bore you with the details, but if your interested in the real story there is a link here
The story behind this film can be found over on part 1
Highlights of this part, the can-can girls including Jayne Tracey and of course George’s third wife in the shape of June Palmer and another bath scene!

Actresses in this part are listed below, again some I cannot identify, so let me know if you spot any?

 

George (?)

Can-Can Girl No.1 (?)

Can-Can Girl No.2 (Jayne Tracey)

Can-Can Girl No.3 (?)

Mistress (Same as Can-Can Girl No.3?)

Wife No.3 (June Palmer)


For those wanting to skip through things Jayne Tracey starts at 2:30 minutes and June Palmer at 14 minutes

So I leave you to enjoy part 2 of ‘Brides in the Bath’, which completes this never before seen video from Arthur Howell and featuring June Palmer.

Next… Another never before seen June Palmer video called ‘Triangle’ featuring June as Little Bo-Peep, an image of which can be seen on her Wikipedia page … Here

P.S. If the video fails at any point, do let me know 🙂

June Palmer – Original ‘Brides in the Bath’ 16mm Film Scan

A scan of an original piece of the colour 16mm film ‘Calamity June’. 

This was from a reel of pieces of offcuts and out-takes from Arthur Howell, provided to a contact of mine John.  John pulled together the pieces and produced the version of ‘Brides in the Bath’ currently showing on this site.
This piece of negative is towards the end of the film where George is trying to kill off his third wife (June Palmer), but she fights back!

Brides in The Bath – Part 1 (Video)

So as promised the full version of ‘Brides in the Bath’, well part 1 anyway, as I needed to keep the file size down for hosting!
This film was based loosely around the true life story of serial killer and bigamist George Joseph Smith.  I won’t bore you with the details, but if your interested in the real story there is a link here
The story behind this film … Arthur Howell was hired to shoot a musical version of the Brides in the Bath story by someone whose name might have been Moscowicz. The details about who wanted this film are sketchy as the notes made at the time were destroyed in a fire. Fortunately the film itself survived. Harry Roy was to have written the music, but he died before shooting started, but the film was shot silent anyway. As Roy died on 1st February 1971, the film must have been shot at some point after this.  Arthur was never paid, so he hung onto the film until he sold it to my contact John W around 1985. He put together the film as best he could, but the film bears very little resemblance to the real story.
So how did I come by this film?  I saw a brief clip ‘June The Newlywed’ on YouTube posted by John and mailed him to ask permission to use the short clip being a June Palmer fan.  John kindly replied saying I could use the clip and then offered me the full film and the history of the film as described above.  Great I thought, an unseen June Palmer film to share, but I nearly fell of my chair when I watched the full version!  Not only does it start June Palmer, but a number of other well known models of that time including Teri Martine, Dawn Grayson, Jayne Tracey and others I have as of yet been unable to identify. The highlights for me?  The Dawn Grayson & June Palmer bath scenes of course!

 

George (?)

1st Wife (?)

Waitress/Maid (Teri Martine)

Matron? (?)

Mistress/2nd Wife (Dawn Grayson)


For those wanting to skip through things Teri Martine starts at 7 minutes and Dawn Grayson at 17 minutes

So I leave you to enjoy part 1, with part 2 coming soon!  In the meantime can anyone identify the other models or the real name of George?  If so please do let me know?

P.S. If the video fails at any point, do let me know 🙂

June in the Bath (Video Clip)

After posting a recent video clip of June Palmer the Newlywed, John W was kind enough to send me his full version of ‘Brides in the Bath’, which runs to nearly an hour long!  Anyway I’m currently working out a way to get the whole thing hosted so I can publish it.

In the meantime as a test a little clip from it, with June taking a bath (contains some nudity if easily offended!)

Usual disclaimer applies – If you wish to share this clip, then please ask or link back to this original, otherwise it will be removed!  

June Palmer The Newlywed (Video Clip)

Another great little find over on YouTube from John W  The Clip is of June Palmer in a short extract from the never finished epic “Brides in the Bath”, shot by June’s then husband Arthur Howell.
Summary: George finds that being married to Margaret is not what he thought it would be as he has several attempts at getting amorous with Margaret, all ending in failure!  In a brilliant piece of casting June plays the dowdy middle-aged spinster Margaret Elizabeth Lofty, who remains clothed (Just!) throughout despite George ‘s best efforts!

As John on his summary says – I think Palmerphiles round the world would like this clip, which has never been seen since it was shot, I think in 1971.
