Almost finished with the A’s so I thought I’d start on the B’s and this little beauty of the very petite and gorgeous Barbara Halks By Harrison Marks. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bad photo of Barbara either in my collection or out on the net, but then there isn’t much that can go wrong with a body like that!
Sissi Mississippi posing in the bath by Harrison Marks from a scan of an original negative.
Sissi, an Italian striptease artiste arrived in London in May 1968 and the only photos of her that made it into Kamera were in an advert that appears on the inside back page of issue No.88. However, Harrison Marks did four still shoots with her which were featured in the final edition of Solo, No.61.
GHM also made three 8mm glamour films with Sissi, the first an offbeat production called ‘The Lash’ (No.E22) filmed on a variation of the Pattern of Evil dungeon set and co-starring Danielle Denese (credited on the film box as Dania Danelle) as a fellow prisoner in a girl fight sequence over a crust of bread. The other two films star Sissi alone, one entitled simply ‘Sissi Mississippi’ (No.E23) in which she does her striptease routine, and the other, No.E26, ‘Bubbles & Beauty’, which was filmed in the bathroom and with Sissi in the bath at HM’s flat and the above shot is obviously a still from that production.
A fabulous bubbly shot of Sissi in the bath and even all those bubbles couldn’t hide her dark thick luscious bush!
A sultry looking Sue Chester kneeling on the sofa topless in black panties and stockings from an original negative scan. A stunning view of Sue and her perky pair, but not by Harrison Marks as all Harrison Marks’ photographs of Sue were taken in one shoot on the Toulouse Lautrec Set of his feature film ‘The Naked World of Harrison Marks’ in the winter of 1965. The photographs of her that he published can be found in Kameras No.71 (13 including the cover) & No.76 with a further two in Femme No.11.
