A beautifully posed and elegant unknown model taken by Harrison Marks in the studio. A shot that shows Harrison Marks at his best in the 1960’s and getting the most from his model and her pose. 1960’s glamour at it’s best! I have no idea who she is, but I have several shots of her in the studio from this set and have her down as unknown model No.62
Bridget Leonard by Harrison Marks on the bedroom set from a restored colour slide. Another one of the later colour slides that had some colour that seems to have survived, although when trying to recover the colours it did come out rather bright!
Bridget is one of those models I’ve published very little of, not for any reason other than I don’t have much of her, other than a copy of her Solo appearance in Solo No.25 (1962). Several similar shots to this slide also appear in Solo. Thanks to Kevin for sending over this scan of the slide 🙂
I love finding memorabilla connected to Harrison Marks and others, be it postcards, prints, magazine articles and catalogues. In this case it’s a 4 page leaflet advertising four Kamera Cine Films under the heading Favourites of the Pharaohs, featuring 6 models, although I’ve counted more! From top left going clockwise the films and models are:
Episode 1, No.77 – The Bath, featuring Tina McGowan and Danielle Denise
Episode 2, No.78 – The Dance, featuring Danielle Denise, Penny Winters and Laya
Episode 3, No.79 – The Slave Market, featuring Hyldagarde (Hilde Beck)
Episode 4, No.80 – The Mummy, featuring Teri Martine and Tina McGowan
The special offer of an exclusive colour film of Sanda is of course Sandra Cassano and hat a fabulous colour leaflet to add to my growing collection of vintage catalogues.
A big thank you must go to Dave over at Rambooks, who scanned and sent this over along with some other great catalogue copies I’ve still to edit, but I couldn’t resist this one! If your looking for a huge catalogue of vintage magazines and other memorabilia go give them a look 🙂
Random Friday afternoon post in the shapely form of 1980’s porn star Anna Ventura.
A completely natural beauty, this dark-haired, pouty-lipped, full-breasted, lush-bodied vixen from came from New York and was around for only a short time. However, as quickly as her star rose it disappeared, with Anna apparently leaving the adult-film business to marry and raise a family at the end of the 80’s. A stunning original shot of her posing on all fours on the bed showing off those exquisite curves and body that gained her such a wonderful reputation. One of several original 35mm shots of Anna from this set thanks to Kevin and his never ending archive 🙂
Margarette is described in the Harrison Marks movie synopsis of glamour film No.44, ‘Margarette’ (1963) as ‘Continental’. He did three still shoots with her and photographs from them are in Kamera No.52, No.53, No.60 & 61 and Kamera Special No.3. Margarette isn’t continental at all but actually English model Babs Dorne, who appears on this Model Index card under that name with the statistics 36-22-36 and being only 5′ 3″ tall. So overall Babs is a nice little package indeed 🙂
