The vastly underrated and under used Audrey Judson (Kim Kim Courtney) from an original 35mm negative sent over by Kevin.
Audrey was photographed by Harrison Marks on the set of The Naked World in 1965 and seven of the photos appeared in Kameras No.69 & No.70. Another two were published, one in Femme No.9 and the other in Kamera Special No.5 and an uncensored shot in Nouvelle Serie De Revue No.65. Audrey also played a part as a flapper in the 1920’s gangster sequence of the feature film, ‘The Naked World of Harrison Marks’ (1966).
A perky blonde named Gisa taken by Paul Pantha on location at some house in January 1967 from a set of contact sheets sent over by Kevin. This is another case of different names for different people, in this case both the model and the photographer.
The photographer Paul Panta is none other than Terry Sparks and Gisa is more well known as UK model Susan Shaw, with these shots of her being taken early in her career. If you go take a look at her over on VEF she went on to have a long and varied career, including appearances in Parade, Fiesta and Mayfair and plenty of Page 3 type work. She also had a foray into the more explicit and hardcore work as well as posing with James Hunt and appearing on numerous record covers!
Terry also went under the name Paul Pantha as a photographer when he worked for Russell Gay, before later using his own name. I have several other sets of contact sheets by Paul Pantha with more to come, but isn’t it sad that I recognised the photo’s as Terry’s work immediately, which he has since verified.
A beautiful shot of Susan posing on the doorstep in panties and a nice open toweling top, which must have been all the fashion back then as she has matching toweling swimsuit in other shots 🙂
An interesting article from the pages of Mayfair Vol.2 No.1 (January 1964) about several well known models making a film for Mayfair. The models in question were Dawn Grayson, Geraldine (Gerry) Brown, Lee Southern, Diane (McNeil) Grant and Pauline Dickenson. All of which apart from Pauline are well known on this blog, especially my favourite in the pink tights, Dawn Grayson.
Now I’m not sure if a film was really made or this was just a set up for the article, but I do know Mayfair did make several super 8mm films later on featuring Syliva Bayo, Mandy Kuypers and Penny Mallett. So maybe they did make the film, but I’m sure I wouldn’t have missed such a film featuring Dawn and friends? Anyone know if it really exists?
You can’t go through the the A’s when posting models and forget the very alluring and ample figure of the great Ann Austin. This restored print although not as sharp as it could be certainly gives you plenty of Ann’s ample figure to feast your eyes on!
Another model that reinvented herself several times throughout her career was Annette Johnson. This shot from a restored 35mm negative shows her from the late 1960’s with shorter darker hair than the platinum blonde look from her early career. Her figure also seems to be filling out now and that bosom expanding from a beautiful set of her posing next to a drinks bar in someone’s home. Also another model form the start of the alphabet 🙂
