1950’s Carnival Cheesecake!

A stunning vintage beauty from the Carnival Annual P22 (1956) and shot by West End Photo’s, but model and photographer unknown. I just love the classic 1950’s hairstyle combined with the red lipstick, fishnet stockings and low cut bra giving us just a hint of nipple. A classic vintage glamour or cheesecake beauty, although I think the red lipstick has been ever so slightly enhanced in this shot.

The term cheesecake seems to have derived from a genre of glamour photography and poster art made popular in wartime pin-ups of the 1940’s, often featuring modest poses by movie starlets displaying lots of leg but little explicit nudity. So called because of the resemblance of a stocking-clad female thigh to the layers of a cheesecake dessert. I think this shot fits that genre perfectly.

Incidentally, this was the first ever magazine I physically purchased and scanned 🙂

Dawn Grayson – From Rags to Riches! (Original)

A beautifully lit shot of Dawn Grayson by Harrison Marks as she poses for him on the Cinderella set in 1964. The published version of this shot appeared in Solo No.43 P22 (1964), but was a slightly tighter crop than my version, but I prefer this one. Dawn’s face and small perky tits are perfectly highlighted by the lighting come from the right, as she poses with her hands under her chin and with her arms in mid air. Although wearing the rags of Cinderella, she definitely looks like a Princess to me!

The Divine Maxine – Kamera Special No.4 (1964)

The ample figure of Maxine (Elaine Ecke) from Kamera Special No.4 P22 (1964). Taken by Harrison Marks with some familiar Parisian posters in the background, Maxine’s ample tits and figure are surrounded by the very familiar long black negligee. Divine curves from Maxine and even the retouching of her lower bits doesn’t look bad in this shot 🙂

Pat’s Lack of a Party Dress!

Pat Ebden featuring on a page in the Venus Films Catalogue (P22) by Russell Gay. It advertises the glamour film No.41 ‘Pat’s Party Dress’ in either 8mm (50ft) or 16mm (100ft) for the buyers viewing pleasure. Although from the production stills above it doesn’t seem to involve much of a party dress!

Pat Ebden is one of those models that is a favourite, but also one I have very few photo’s of or copies of films such as this. What I do have of her I’ve published is stunning, but just not enough! Now I know there are films of her alone and with both Tina Madison and Marie Davis I’m on the hunt for copies 🙂

Enjoy and I do like the shot of Pat with the strategically placed heart 🙂

A Slick View From Erica (1959)

The gorgeous Erica looking very smooth and slick from Solo No.9 P22 (1959). It actually looks like the photo was taken in the props cupboard with all those items in the background, including the gramophone, but who cares when you have that view of Erica!

Marie Deveraux – Statuesque Beauty! (1957)

The elegantly posed Marie Deveraux from Kamera No.4 P22 (1957). A simple nude studio shot of Marie posing as if a statue and it reminds me slightly of a Greek marble goddess.  I love the make-up highlighting the eyes and eyebrows and the hair tied up with pearls, simple but effective and all showing off Marie’s beautiful body to great effect.
