LEIGH BY EXAMPLE
You think you can ball? Then show me what you got, chumps!


We featured Leigh Chapman as a femme fatale not too long ago, but here you see her again in 1965 schooling some fools on a Culver City, California basketball court during down time from filming television's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. She needs to drive hard and draw contact. But not against the flabby shoeless guy—he'd probably like it way too much.

CHILLY AND GRAY
She has a classic case of cold feet.

British actress Janine Gray must really be suffering in this cold. She was born in Bombay, India, and though she left at age five, may have been there just long enough to get used to the tropical weather. Her show business career was short, but she did appear in some of the better television series of the 1960s, including The Avengers, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Saint, and The Alfred Hitchcock Hour. The shot above was made to promote her role in the cinematic comedy Quick Before It Melts, which is set in Antarctica. Luckily for Gray it was filmed in California. But that's a place that can feel pretty cold too, when you have no pants. See below. 1964 copyright on these images.

PERFECT AFT
Why thank you. It’s probably all those squats I do.

Above, a fun shot of French actress Danielle De Metz, who appeared on television in shows like The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Dr. Kildare, & Surfside 6, as well as in numerous movies. If she doesn’t keep her eyes on the water she’s going to run aground.

LOVER'S LANE
Someday her prince will come.

Above, Austrian-born British actress Jocelyn Lane, who appeared in numerous films and television shows during the ’50s and ’60s, including The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Operation Snatch, Dangerous Youth, and The Gamma People, before going on to marry Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (there’s a mouthful), relaxing here with her dog circa 1960.

PROFESSIONAL TOUCH
Accurate shooting starts with the diaphragm, baby. Let me show you what I mean.

We posted a couple of Michael Avallone covers a while back and decided to return to him today for a more detailed treatment. Avallone called himself the fastest typewriter in the east, cranking out nearly two hundred books between 1953 and 1989, including entries in the Hawaii Five-O, Planet of the Apes, and Man from U.N.C.L.E. series. But speed exacted a heavy toll in quality, which may be why Avallone is considered by some to be one of the worst writers of all time. We can’t possibly dispute that—after all, he wrote the novelization of Friday the 13th in 3D—not exactly a résumé highlight. But even if he was undiscriminating, he was also bold. His output eventually shifted from detective fiction to pure flights of fancy. In the surreal Shoot It Again, Sam a group of Chinese brainwashers disguised as old Hollywood stars make lead character Ed Noon believe he’s Sam Spade. The series grew even weirder, and by the last few books Noon was trying to thwart an alien invasion. Quality of the prose aside, Avallone was a unique—if occasionally obnoxious—member of the pulp pantheon. Check him out yourself and you’ll see what we mean.
