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 🙁
An absolutely stunning shot of Marie Deveraux in the studio by Harrison Marks and one that shows off her uncensored beauty at it’s best! Such wonderful curves and a perfectly smooth mound, which would have helped the censors hide such a view for publication, shame!
Another shot of a young Marie Deveraux posing nude sat on some cushions from a restored late 1950’s silver gelatin photo by Girlymag. A fabulous view of Marie’s body showing of her figure and chest and a rather cheeky smile too!
A very sunny view of a smiling Marie Deveraux taken on the Isles of Scilly in 1958 sitting topless in the sand dunes wearing a sarong, blond wig and scarf. Photos from this shoot were published in the first Kamera on Location hardback book and a very similar image of Marie appears within those pages and I published it here. This image comes direct from the original negative with thanks to Kevin who sent it over.
The stunning and sandy Marie Deveraux by Harrison Marks posing on a beach on location in and around the Isles of Scilly. Taken in 1958 during a visit to the islands, there are many similar shots of Marie posing on the beach that were published in ‘Kamera on Location’. This shot didn’t seem to make the cut, but comes from a scan of the original negative taken at the time and worth of any publication. Another beach beauty 🙂
