Hilde Beck – No Support Required! (Original)

I had forgotten that I had this shot of Hilde Beck on the Egyptian set by Harrison Marks! This is a scan of an original negative sent through by Kevin before Christmas and although not the best composed shot, it still shows a lovely rear view of Hilde, but I doubt she really needed any support 🙂

June Palmer – Purple Pose (Original) & 500th Post!

The purple Chaise lounge and sheepskin rug make a reappearance in this studio shot of June sent through by John. Taken in the 1970’s at Scotlee studio’s June is seen elegantly reclined on the chaise lounge, giving us a perfect view of her body with a hint of bush with the sheepskin rug spread out majestically before her! I may be wrong but this looks to be a different from this purple chaise lounge set and at least the third set I’ve seen with June posing on it.

I also just realized that this is also the 500th post dedicated to June on the site, which isn’t bad going!

Bobby Sparrow Uncovered -1972 (Original)

After my post last week of an original photo of bobby Sparrow on the beach at Pegwell bay, Terry has now sent through several more shots of her. They including this shot of Bobby without her wig and Terry remembers that he worked with her several times during 1971 and 1972, mostly shooting the stockings and suspender belt style photo for the American market. She usually wore the wig and the only picture of her without one is above, but it does match the to a similar one published in Oui.
Terry also recounts that she was a very lively girl and good fun to have a laugh with –  I remember one occasion when she proudly showed me her pubic area trimmed into a heart shape. I think her current boyfriend was a hairdresser.

I don’t know what happened to her after about 1973 as we lost touch, but I did see a rather distressing article in a national newspaper sometime in the mid 1990’s. It concerned an ex-glamour model called Roberta something who had developed MS and was terminally ill. There was a picture of a very sick lady laying in bed and I just could not make up my mind if it was her or not. I do remember that her real name was Roberta, so it may have been her or it may have been someone totally different.
Thanks to Terry for the story and hopefully the last part isn’t true and it wasn’t Bobby, but unfortunately these things do happen. Thanks also to Terry for more shots of Bobby at Pegwell bay and that heart shaped bush!

June Palmer – Sheer Sofa Delight! (Original)

Another cracking shot of June by Stefan Glass posing in the living room, this time reclining on a sofa in a stunning little sheer nightie that leaves little to the imagination! I have 4 shots of June reclining on this sofa either with this nightie on or nude, but one thing she never forgets in any of them, her cigarette! I forget how acceptable smoking was back then even in publications, but it still looks odd now.

Ann Walker by Terry Sparks, Part 2 (Coloured)

The stunning portrait shot of Ann Walker photographed by Terry Sparks and coloured by Oldiznewagain
It’s very hard to criticize how well Oldiznewagain colours these shots as I couldn’t do anywhere near as good and the skin tones on this shot are exceptional. My only critique of this shot and I’ve mentioned it before on others is that as part of the colouring process he tends to lose some of the skin texture and the freckles on Ann’s face, but I’m just being picky as I love the overall effect as always.
