June Palmer – S’Trips On The River – Part II (Video)

Now this was a pleasant surprise! A few weeks ago John W sent me another disc of June films from his collection that he had digitized, most were titles I know about, but sat amongst them was this little gem! A 8mm black and white film featuring June I hadn’t seen or known about! The title of the film pretty much says it all, as it features a young June and unknown friend, stripping on the river.

Details of the film can be seen in the box cover below, but it seems to have been produced by Stag Films and was film No.113 featuring Jane (June) and Gina messing about on the river. The other interesting thing is this is part 2, so there is another part to this film out there! I have no idea where or when this was filmed, but at several points during the film both June and Gina are seen coyly waving at passers by, luck them getting that view.

Enjoy this great little find of a new June film 🙂

June Palmer in Not Tonight Darling (Video)

Another short but sweet clip of June in one of her brief film appearances.  This features June in a black leotard as a health club member in the 1971 film ‘Not Tonight, Darling’.  You see her body at the beginning of the clip climbing into a toning machine and then throughout the clip, with a short shot showing her face. Not a very long clip of her, but another of her listed film appearances to add to the collection here

Also, call me a perv but wouldn’t you just love to see this clip of June in that toning machine without the black leotard? 😛

Thanks to John for sending this through, who also mentions he’s seen the 1965 version of Moll Flanders that has June credited as making an appearance, but John says as of yet he’s been unable to find her in the film.  It must have been a very fleeting shot of her then!

A Little ‘Cous-Cous’ From Sylvia Bayo

Anyone that followed my DaysGonebyPorn blog in the early days on Tumblr will know I used to regularly post images of Sylvia and along with Veronica Diemen and Sylvia McFarland she was one of my favourite ebony models from the 1970’s. 

Sylvia or Lucienne Camille (stage name) appeared in various mens magazines throughout the 70’s including Mayfair, Men Only, Fiesta and the harder porn magazines such as private. She also appeared in various soft and hardcore loops and even some minor TV appearances. Her figure was magnificent, with a slim waist and firm round tits with the most magnificent nipples, as highlighted below!

So why the appearance on this blog? Well one of her film appearances was in a GHM loop released by Maximus International entitled ‘Cous-Cous’. Released in 1970, this 17 minute film featured Sylvia under her stage name of Lucienne and describes her as ‘the Tigress from Africa, Lucienne.  Her waist so slim that ones hands could span it, and breasts with nipples that defy comparison.’ I’ve not seen the film itself so can’t say if it’s one of GHM’s glamour type films or a later more explicit loop, but as it was released under Maximus I’ll go with the later. She also appeared in the film comedy ‘On The Game’ the same film that June Palmer made a brief appearance in as a prostitute!
Sylvia unfortunately passed away in 2006 after a battle with Leukaemia, but remains a firm favourite of mine. My only regret is that there aren’t enough good quality scans out there of her and that I haven’t got a decent high resolution image or negative of her to share, plus a good copy of Cous-Cous. Anyone? Finally the image above from Rex Magazine Vol.1 No.3 looks like it was taken in the grounds at the front of Ewhurst Manor?
Enjoy Sylvia and those magnificent nipples!

June Palmer in Artemis & Aktaion (Video)

Time for another video clip featuring June and this time a never before seen original made by John W himself! Shot in 1985 Artemis & Aktaion is a 9 minute short film that represents a Greek story based around a red vase and basically features June in a red robe stripping and then rubbing oil all over her naked body, need I say more! Enjoy the clip as it’s a unique view of June on film later in her private modelling career.

Now you’ve enjoyed the clip for some more details about the shoot from John.

‘I tried to make it as representing a Greek red-figure vase. The meteor scene and the transformation into a stag were particularly unsuccessful and I re-shot them on video when I had the film digitized. It was quite difficult to get cloth of the right earthy-red colour. I eventually got it from Liberty’s in London. It was intended as lining for coats and was quite scratchy. I apologised to June about this, but she said she has had worse next to her skin. I made the shoulder brooches, which were decorated with palmettes as sort of visual pun, but they didn’t come out on the film. The running stag and jumping sheep sequences were taken from Edward Muybridge’s – Animal Locomotion’.

A fantastic clip of June that I keep revisiting and watching for some reason 🙂 and a big thank you to John for allowing me to share his own films of June, of which there is one more to come.

Walden Manor – It’s All About Location! (Original)

For locations used for glamour shoots by GHM and others I’ve always been fascinated by Ewhurst Manor it’s location, background, grounds and rooms that were used. As I’ve posted more and more shots, it has also become obvious that this wasn’t the only location that was used and the name Walden Manor started to appear. Knowing very little about the place or location I thought I’d ask Terry as he mentioned it on one of his mails and he has kindly replied with this fascinating insight into Walden and a superb image!
It’s an old Manor House near Orpington in Kent. It was owned by a lovely couple in their 60’s, name of Janet and Jim Clark. Working there was a joy as Janet, who had spent most of her life in Mexico City was a great cook and always provided the most fabulous lunches. The only problem was that after eating too much nobody wanted to work in the afternoon. Walden Manor I think I am correct in saying was only used by GHM, Ed Alexander, Ken Williams and myself for glamour shoots although I believe they let it out to film and advertising companies. The great advantage to me was that it was nearly always available at short notice unlike Ewhurst who had so many clients it often needed to be booked well in advance. That was often difficult with the glamour girls who tended to be here today and gone tomorrow. There was a large entrance hall and several bedrooms including a four poster bed. The whole place was filled with antiques, a grand piano and a cellar.
One day GHM booked the place and turned up with a young couple telling Janet he wanted to take some romantic pix of them. At some point in the afternoon Janet happened to look out of one of the bedroom windows to see George on the front lawn taking close ups of the young couple having vigorous sex. That was too much for Janet and she refused to let him work there again!
When I was still working for Russell we had a 4 day shoot there making a film called the Hell Fire Club. A lot of the scenes were filmed in the cellar and in one particular shot I had to film two men dressed as Monks carrying a naked girl down the stairs. The wood was far more rotten than any realised and the whole lot came crashing down, luckily not causing any great damage to our actors. This meant the whole crew were now stuck in the cellar. After about 30 minutes of shouting, Jim finally turned up with a ladder and we all climbed out. We still had more of the film to shoot but some of he girls found it difficult going up and down the ladder when they were half naked. Personally I thought it was good fun!
I have attached a photo of us all in the entrance hall of Walden, taken by Jim Clark. 
Back row: Russell Gay, Samantha Bond, Terry Sparks, Cindy Neal, John (Assistant to Terry)
Front row: Milt (actor), Maya Zell, Malcolm (actor) and April Dawson
I love this as not your typical shot and good to see Terry in the photo. Great to see the models too, although April Dawson is a new name to me and Milt the actor looks familiar?
Thanks Terry 🙂
