Another different pose this time by Rita Landre (Pamela Green) from a restored 35mm Pamar colour slide. Taken on a beach in 1954 on the Isles of Scilly by Harrison Marks it Shows Rita posing nude on a beach towel in a very different pose. It sort of reminds me of a Yoga pose, but must admit I’d join up for this class if thew likes of Rita posed like that naked 🙂
Vera Day adorning the cover of Spick No.10 (Sept 1954) in a very nice red and black bikini. The sub title says ‘Starlet Moving Up’ and she obviously hit her prime in 1962 when she posed for Harrison Marks nude! Thanks to Paul from Firebird London for this great copy.
An original of Pamela Green in an early shot of her as Rita Landre taken in 1954 by Harrison Marks. The red wig was purchased from wig creations and taken on location to St. Mary’s on the Scilly Isles in September of 1954. Pam wore the wig for the first time on the isles, which then later became synonymous with her Rita alter ego!

In 1954, during her annual vacation to Miami, Florida, Bettie Page met photographer Bunny Yeager. At that time, Page was the top pin-up model in New York. Yeager, a former model herself and aspiring photographer, signed Page for a photo session at the wildlife park ‘Africa USA’ in Boca Raton, Florida. The Jungle Bettie photographs from this shoot are among her most celebrated and include nude shots with a pair of cheetahs named Mojah and Mbili. The leopard skin patterned Jungle Girl outfit she wore was made, along with much of her lingerie, by Bettie Page herself.
