A scan of an original lobby card for the 1966 film ‘The Naked World of Harrison Marks’. I recently bought a full set of these lobby cards that would have appeared in the foyer of cinema’s showing the film. Considering the age and usage of these cards they are in excellent condition, but I’ve obviously tidied them up slightly.
I used to collect old lobby cards a while back from some of my old favourite films such as The Great Escape, Leon, Bond Films and others. As you can imaging getting hold of them wasn’t easy or cheap, but now I have a few more to add to the collection.
From the set of 5 this has to be one of my favourites, not only does it feature Harrison Marks, but probably typifies his life as a photographer and how he auditioned his models. You can just imagine him asking his models to strip and show off their body as he looks on with a similar look on his face. The views he must have witnessed from his casting couch 😉
A shot from an original negative from my collection of Dawn Grayson. A fantastic view of Dawn’s stockinged legs as she perches on the sofa arm, warmed by the fire next to her. Another shot from this shoot on the set with the bamboo wallpaper.
… The Black Magic Box or Nicky Stevens! Well we know or have seen Nicky’s secrets, but she’s keeping them well covered in this shot.
Looking all very prim and proper sat the in her dress and black shoes, maybe the chocolates were there to entice her to remove the dress and other items. A very serious look too, but further shots from this set reveal a smile and that she’s wearing stockings under that dress. So the chocolates seem to have melted her mood and helped the dress disappear 🙂
I loved Black Magic chocolates by the way, my parents always seemed to have a box for Christmas, which never lasted long in our household. Black Magic or Dark Chocolate Brazil Nuts, yum!
