Sad to hear today that the beautiful Mary Collinson the of the Collinson twins has died. Apart from her iconic status as an Hammer actress, she was chosen as Playboy
magazine’s Playmate of the Month in October 1970, together with her sister Madeleine. They were the first identical twin Playmate sisters.
Prior to their appearance in Playboy one of the first people to use them was the glamour photographer Harrison Marks who cast them as saucy maids in his short film Halfway Inn. The film, made for the 8mm market, was shot sometime around July 1970, when a still from the film was used in a Marks’ advert that ran in that month’s issue of Continental Film Review magazine.
Above is a stunning shot of Mary also by Harrison Marks and shows off her fabulous figure perfectly.

Mary and Madeleine Collinson on the cover of Girl Illustrated Vol.4 No.41 (1970). Another fabulous cover from Girl Illustrated featuring the twin sets of Mary and Madeline.
The Collinson Twins (Madeleine and Mary) from Rex No.1 showing a bit of sisterly love to one another! Both posed for GHM at one point or another and obviously went on to pose for many other magazines together, including Playboy. There’s something about these shots that just seem a little more risqué than just posing together, but it does get ones mind racing amongst other things!
