Mary Deighan – A Quick Break Between Poses!

Mary Deighan having a quick smoke as she reads the paper in the side wings. Taken from Kamera Backstage (1959) It still seems strange seeing a photo of a model posing with a cigarette, but back then it was socially acceptable and no one knew the health issues smoking would cause!

Kamera Backstage Billboard Flyer

I love this page at the front of Kamera Backstage that looks like a like a bill poster, along with the image of Mary Deighan having a smoke and reading the paper in the side wings pretending to relax. A lot of effort seems to have gone into the creation and production of this Kamera Special and it was my first introduction to Harrison Marks and Pamela Green, so very glad I have a copy now 🙂

Mary Deighan In Your Rear View!

Mary Deighan posing at the rear of what looks to be a 1958 Oldsmobile Super 88 from Kamera No.28 (1960). This seems to be taken at the same time and location as this image of Pamela Green sitting on the boot, which was published in ‘She Walks in Beauty’.

Kamera Backstage – Act VI Three Stunning Blondes

I finally have a copy of Kamera Backstage thanks to Yak over on the official Pamela Green site who sent me a copy. I love this 64 page special produced by Harrison Marks in 1959 and this image is a fine example of why I love it so much! 

The stunning figures of Pamela Green, Mary Deighan and Madeleine Mado, better known as Maria Hale without the long blonde wig.  All tastefully posed and lit in the wings or side stage.

A beautifully restored image of Mary Deighan, probably part of the collection that appeared in the 96 page pocket book ‘Kamera Backstage’ in 1959.
