Marie Deveraux (1940-2019)

I heard the sad news today that Marie Deveraux passed away at the end of last year (30th December 2019). Marie real name Patricia Sutcliffe was one of the first models to became a regular and very popular nude model in magazines during the late 1950’s. She had a brief career in cinema, usually as a sexy girl in comedies, dramas and horror films and appeared in several Hammer Horror films including “The Brides of Dracula” (1960) and was Elizabeth Taylor’s stand-in in Cleopatra (1963)

Marie was one of the original group of models that posed for Harrison Marks in the late 1950’s for his Kamera publication and appeared in many of the early editions including the covers of No.2, No.5, No.10 and No.14. She was also one of three models that went to the Isles of Scilly in 1959, along with Pamela Green and Lorraine Burnett and featured throughout the original ‘Kamera on Location’.

A true glamour model legend šŸ™

Samantha Rows – Doorway Delight (Original)

A doorway to heaven featuring 1960’s UK model Samantha Rows by Terry Sparks from another of his contact sheet sets. A fuller frontal view this time showing off Samantha’s perfectly proportioned figure and natural pussy as she plays with her necklace. Again this location looks like someone’s actual house and Terry has used it in many other model shoots.

Sylvana Manto – Kneeling Elegance

The curvaceous Sylvana Manto (Madelaine Bannister) kneeling on a stool from this set of restored silver gelatin photos. A fabulous shot of her rounded tits and curves. A simply stunning, sophisticated and sexy shot!

Vicky – Kitchen Delight (Original)

1960’s UK model known as Vicky posing on the kitchen sink in just black panties with an apple. A delicious shot in more than one way, especially of Vicky posing with that apple, very much forbidden fruit. I love the fact it’s in someone’s kitchen and would love to just open those cupboards to look at all the packets and cans that were around back then, but I’m getting distracted from the really focus in the kitchen and Vicky.

More Backstage in Black! (1959)

Another shot of Madeleine Mado (Maria Hale), Mary Deighan and Pamela Green posing in the dressing room from a 35mm Pamar colour slide. I love the fact it looks like just a snapshot of them all as they undress, but Iā€™m sure it was posed, which shows how natural all three were at posing. Pam looks great stepping out of that petticoat revealing her black underwear šŸ™‚
