Maria Provost – Kamera or Revue?

Two more shots of Maria Provost in the bedroom of Harrison Marks flat. They probably originated from Kamera No.61, but look to have been double retouched (if that makes sense!) as the bottom image has pubic hair added back in. This was a favoured by the Nouvelle De Serie Revue or Studio magazines, that reprinted a lot of GHM’s work.

A More Familiar Cleo Simmons

Two shots of a more familiar blonde Cleo Simmons from Nouvelle Serie De Revue No.65.  Unlike other images from this publication where pubic hair has been added back in, these shots of Miss Simmons seem to show her beautiful true natural bush.

A Cave Full of Riches From Revue No.65

The centre pages from Nouvelle Serie De Revue No.65 featuring a cave full of rich beauties in all their glory! From left to right we have a shaved unknown model, followed by Julie Jordan and finally the curvaceous full bushed Audrey Judson (Kim Courtney). Obviously an Harrison Marks reprint, but from where I do not know, but potentially a still from the Harrison Marks feature film ‘The Naked World of Harrison Marks’ or ‘The Nine Ages of Nakedness’?

Jayne Tracey – Revue No.46

Two ‘uncensored’ shots of Jayne Tracey reprinted in the Danish publication ‘Nouvelle Serie De Revue’ No.46 by Harrison Marks on the space set used with many other models.

These magazines were published by Nordisk Bladcentral, Copenhagen and distributed by Sangko-Norden and there were several different publications, such as Play-Girl, Bazaar, Lotus, Charme, Nouvelle Serie De Revue and Nouvelle Serie De Studio.  Nearly all were re-prints of Harrison Marks work from Kamera and his other publications and feature all the familiar models from his work.
What is quite surprising is the addition of pubic hair in all these re-printed publications, as they are obviously added on to the original images, as the bushes are too perfect and uniform, but done well!  So we have a situation where for the UK market the images were retouched to remove any signs of pubic hair, due to UK censorship laws.  But the re-prints in the Scandinavian countries, where pubic hair was deemed OK, they added the hair back in!  It does beg the question as to why and could they not use GHM’s original untouched images rather than editing the pubic hair back in!  The answer may be as simple as that most of the originals didn’t have pubic hair as most of the models shaved similar to Pamela Green and Vivienne Warren.  Still seems like a lot of work to add the pubic hair back in, but then maybe the Scandinavian men liked their ‘Bush’, which you can’t complain about.
I’ve published several in the past and always wondered, but now you know. So when you see those perfect bushes on your favourite 1960’s models you will know they are probably from one of theses publications 🙂
