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 Brard'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 Brard 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 consist 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 Carols, who was actually Raymond Brenot under a pseudonym. See another Carols here, and three more undressing centerfolds by Roger Brard 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 Brard’s famous pin-ups déshabillable, and just above you see the back cover. You can see two more examples of Brard's work here and here.

GILDING THE LILLY
Lilly Christine proves gold is eternal.

Above you see burlesque queen Lilly Christine (here referred to as Lily), on the cover of Folies de Paris et de Hollywood issue 80, looking amazingly beautiful, yet positively radioactive, the latter thanks to some overzealous photo retouching, common at the time, 1956. More below.

ROSINE 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 Brard, 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 Brard 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.
