It must be time for another Harrison Marks Film from the his Kamera Cine Film collection. This time it’s Kamera Cine Film No. 48 ‘Star Strip’ (1964) featuring none other than June Palmer and Stuart Samuels. The story behind this film is simple, it features June preparing backstage in very little to go on stage and perform a striptease, with Samuels thrown in for a bit of light entertainment.
This film is one of the more common films by GHM that you can find out on the internet, but what is different about this version is it’s the 16mm version of the film and not the standard 8mm version. That means the quality of the film is much better and that comes across in this digital conversion, plus it’s the full end to end film including beginning and end titles, which seem to get missed off on other versions I’ve seen out there.
A big thank you to John W, who not only sent me this copy, but took the time to get the film converted to digital and added the appropriate music to the film, as originally it was silent, not that June stripping needed any accompaniment!
You may also want to go into the settings on the video to change the quality up to 720p or 1080p to see the real quality of this version, as the default seems to set it doen at 480p!

Time for another June Palmer glamour film, this time filmed by Russell Gay and titled ‘Beauty & The Barn – Part 1’. The premise of the film is a simple one, a young June enters a hay barn and feeling sleepy decides to take a nap, but not before she strips out of her clothes first!
The date of the film is unknown, but June looks to be fairly young in it, so probably late 50’s or early 1960’s? She also has the long hair and beauty spot on her cheek, which I’ve seen in other shots of June taken by Russell Gay, so I would assume all taken at around the same time? Thanks to John W for this film, plus additional music and he’s also provided part 2, which takes up where part one finishes 🙂
Thanks to John W I now also have a better and longer copy of June in Orbit starring June and Teri Martine. I’ve updated the main June in Orbit post where the new video is embedded and you can find a link to it below to view the new version 🙂
I had a very nice surprise in the post over Easter from John W in the form of a DVD containing a selection of June Palmer films. John recently had these converted onto DVD from the original 8mm/16mm Cine Films by Rutland Productions
, whom have done an excellent job! I now have a copy of all the June glamour films listed on her Filmography page
, apart from Beauty in the Barn Part 2, which John is missing as well funnily enough!
Anyway, the first of these films also looks to possible be one of the oldest and titled ‘Fabulous Jane’ for some reason. The introduction shows it was produced by ‘Stag’ productions and was film No.111. It’s only a short film at just over 3 minutes, but features a young June on a chaise lounge stripping off and then redressing in stockings, suspender belt etc. before stripping off again! As with all Cine films there was no sound, but John has kindly provided his own music to them all including this one, but the choice is excellent and all in keeping with the film and period it was made.
So onto the film … enjoy!
It must be time for another June video, so this time June Palmer with her long time close friend Teri Martine in the glamour film “June in Orbit”, in which Teri and June played astronauts forced to strip off when a meteorite storm heats up their spaceship. Filmed by June’s partner Arthur Howell in colour on the elaborate spaceship set it features June and Teri in some great gold outfits that end up being just little gold knickers and boots.
Teri has fond memories of doing this film and recalls some of the details in an interview over on Gavcrimsons blog. I love the comments about the sweat being baby oil!!
The spaceship set goes on to appear in many more June images and there is a particular set of June as Joanna Kent with the spaceship set in the background. More technical details around the film, it was filmed/released in 1969 and identified as Strobe Film No.7 and 165 feet in Standard 8mm (Colour & Black & White).
Anyway enjoy the film!
Update: I got sent a better version of June in Orbit by John W, so that is the version now included here and thanks to John for sharing all his June films with me 🙂
