I originally published the version of this shot here scanned directly from Kamera No.46 (1962), but now I have the original negative of the shot by Harrison Marks in my collection. As you can see the quality is crystal clear and shows off Bridget, her tits and necklace much better than the published version. I’ve also taken the liberty of cropping the shot differently from the shot in kamera keeping the shot wider, so you can see more of the lovely Bridget. A stunning shot and pose as well from GHM at his best 🙂
Bridget Leonard was the live-in girlfriend of photographer Russell Gay and ran the office in Oxford Street for him, which was the mail order outlet for Venus Films. They split up around late 1967 early 1968. She was already modelling for Russell before she got a role in Harrison Marks’ first feature film ‘Naked as Nature Intended’. She first appeared in Kamera No.43 (1961) then Kamera No.44, 46 (Cover) & 54 and then in Solo No.25 dedicate just to her. Her only glamour film appearance was as a Wild-West saloon girl in the HM Glamour Movie No.106 ‘Gamblin’ Gal’ (1962).
The cracking shot of Bridget above comes from Kamera No.46 (1962) and features her on the cover and centre pages in stills taken on the Wild-West Saloon set featured in ‘Gamblin Girl’.
