UP THE CREEK
You said we were going fishing, cherie, so I wore my fishnets.

We found this special Nus d’été (summer nudes) issue of Paris-Hollywood back in 2009, and every year on the day of the summer solstice we seem to be too otherwise occupied to post images from it. So finally this year we decided posting on the actual first day of summer is less important than simply sharing the images, so here you go—a dozen pages to warm your heart and possibly your loins. If you squint at the one just below she could almost be Ingrid Bergman. Almost. See another Paris-Hollywood special here.

SHIVER D'HIVER
We’ve heard of freezing your ass off but this is ridiculous.

It’s been awhile since we shared a Paris-Hollywood, so today in honor of the first day of winter we have one of their themed issues—Nus d’Hiver, or Nudes of Winter—and we can’t help but notice that the only model photographed outdoors appears to have frozen her bush off. Well, they say you have to sacrifice for art, so kudos to her. Seventeen scans below. Wanna see more? Click keywords "Paris-Hollywood" at the bottom of the post. Stay warm everyone.

LOCAL COULEUR
Start spreading the nus.

The French erotic magazine Paris-Hollywood regularly printed themed issues and you're looking at the cover of one above, "Nus Couleurs," which appeared in 1951. It's a 28-page collection of color nude photos, shot with typical French panache. Below are scans of our favorite images. Also, we managed to locate a couple of other Paris-Hollywood themed issues, so look for those down the line.

PARIS DERRIERE
Bringing up the rear.

Paris Hollywood #108 gets playful its cover text where it says “derrière le rideau,” which means “behind the curtain.” If you glance below at Roger Brand's pin-up déshabillable, she’s behind a curtain, showing her behind. So, derrière le rideau is sort of a cute way of... Er, or maybe they didn’t mean it that way at all. Anyway, more scans below, including the rear cover featuring a cabaret dancer with the great name of Nilka. Sounds like a chocolate drink, don’t you think? 1951, on all of this. See more wonderful Roger Brand pieces by clicking his keyword below.

MADAM AND EVE
The garden of Earthly delights.

Above, the covers and centerfold of Paris-Hollywood #119, published 1951. The covers are comprised of two photographs from the series “La vallée de la soif” by Jacques Le Chevallier, and the centerfold déshabillable—i.e. it undresses—is by Carola. See another Carola here, and three more undressing centerfolds by Roger Brand here, here, and here.

SHOCK THE BOAT
Mon dieu, the heat today! Do you mind terribly if I take off my shirt?

Paris-Hollywood #130, from 1952, with a cover photoillustration of a woman out for a nude jaunt on her motorboat. Inside is one of Roger Brand’s famous pin-ups déshabillable, and just above you see the back cover. You can see two more examples of Brand's work here and here.

ROISINE ROUGE
And now for my next trick, I’ll make this rooster on my head disappear.

1950 issue of Paris-Hollywood, with cover star Rosine Luguey, who was an actress in France during the 1940s and 1950s. Also, this issue has another cool stripping centerfold by Roger Brand, as well as some bonus pin-up art as a finale, which we've chopped in half for better viewing. Sacrilege, we know, but we're prisoners of our 433 pixel column width. Maybe one day, if we get really ambitious, we'll make the art open in a separate, larger window. In the meantime, you can see the other Brand centerfold we posted here.

SHEER GENIUS
Paris-Hollywood magazine made teasing a fine art.

Here’s another Paris-Hollywood, which we've mentioned before is one of our favorite vintage erotic mags. Below is one of their famous semi-transparent centerfolds, along with some nude-o-licious interior pages. We explained how the centerfolds work in our last post on this magazine, so feel free to click on over there and have a peek. We have a few more Paris-Hollywoods we’ll post pretty soon.

TRICK BABY
With a wink and a smile.

Paris-Hollywood was a cinema and cheesecake magazine published every two weeks in France from 1947 to 1973. Its first issue featured Rita Hayworth on the cover, and over the years dozens more movie stars, as well as scores of unknown models, graced its cover. This issue, from 1952, features not just a provocative cover shot, but one of the magazine’s favorite interior treats—a centerfold that strips. It’s ingeniously simple. The centerspread is a piece of semi-transparent white paper inked in such a way as to strategically block portions of the pages beneath. In this case, a silhouette of black ink creates the image of a woman in a catsuit. But lift the white paper and you see the same figure nude. The coolness of this trick can only be described using the word on the magazine’s cover: “espièglerie”—the state of being mischievous or frolicsome. Take a look below and see if we aren’t right, and note the rear cover with American actress June Haver.

1961—Bay of Pigs Invasion Is Launched
A group of CIA financed and trained Cuban refugees lands at the Bay of Pigs in southern Cuba with the aim of ousting Fidel Castro. However, the invasion fails badly and the result is embarrassment for U.S. president John F. Kennedy and a major boost in popularity for Fidel Castro, and also has the effect of pushing him toward the Soviet Union for protection.

1943—First LSD Trip Takes Place
Swiss scientist Albert Hofmann, while working at Sandoz Laboratories in Basel, accidentally absorbs lysergic acid diethylamide, better known as LSD, and thus discovers its psychedelic properties. He had first synthesized the substance five years earlier but hadn't been aware of its effects. He goes on to write scores of articles and books about his creation.

1912—The Titanic Sinks
Two and a half hours after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean on its maiden voyage, the British passenger liner RMS Titanic sinks, dragging 1,517 people to their deaths. The number of dead amount to more than fifty percent of the passengers, due mainly to the fact the liner was not equipped with enough lifeboats.
1947—Robinson Breaks Color Line
African-American baseball player Jackie Robinson officially breaks Major League Baseball's color line when he debuts for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Several dark skinned men had played professional baseball around the beginning of the twentieth century, but Robinson was the first to overcome the official segregation policy called—ironically, in retrospect—the "gentleman's agreement".
