MIDNIGHT BLUE
Dark on the outside, darker on the inside.


This is the second Canadian tabloid we've shared in October, and we have several others upcoming in the next few months. This time we're back to Minuit, the sister publication of Midnight, published today in 1968 with a cover featuring Susan Boyd. She's looking a little radioactive, and in unusually dark waters. This could everyone's fate the way things are going in 2022. We don't know what Minuit editors were shooting for here. Maybe they had a problem during the printing phase. But in it an odd way it's actually a nice cover, and Boyd pops up again in the centerfold, looking much healthier.
 
Elswewhere inside the issue Minuit wastes no time with its efforts to shock. We learn about Vietmanese youngster Bon Ngoc Tho, who editors claim is a demi-homme born with many characteristics of his father—a monkey. We can say a lot about this, but let's skip most of it and simply note that the 1960s were the tail end, so to speak, of a long-running fascination with supposed human freaks.

Moving on, editors have a curious photo of a model with something unidentifiable in her mouth. We took several guesses what the thing was, and they were all wrong. Turns out it's a pea shooter—a tire-pois. No, we'd never seen one, but a few of you probably recognized it. Minuit editors claim it can kill a kid, and that hospitals around the U.S. have been treating serious pea shooter injuries, along with wounds inflicted by “blow zappers and Zulu-guns.” The article explains that the injuries come not from shooting the projectiles, but from swallowing them while inhaling to fire the weapon, occasionally piercing arteries in the neck.

There are more stories along those lines, but it isn't all dark at midnight. Elsewhere in the issue you get men's fitness, nymphomania, and plenty of celebs, such as Claudia Cardinale, Nai Bonet, and Maureen Arthur, plus Robert Vaughn hawking a 100% legitimate Man from U.N.C.L.E. “plume espion.” That means “spy feather,” which doesn't help at all in determining exactly what it is. But a careful scan of the text suggests that it's an x-ray vision device that works on everything from walls to clothes. Right. We'll take two, and see you at the beach. Twenty-one scans below.

VENTURA HIGHWAY
It's my way or I'll pump you fulla holes. I know that doesn't rhyme, but you get the idea.


Above, a promo photo of British actress Viviane Ventura, who appeared in such films as Docteur Caraïbes and A High Wind in Jamaica, and television shows such as I Spy and The Man from U.N.CL.E. This shot was made when she was co-starring in Battle Beneath the Earth in 1967.

THE POWERS THAT BE
Saying U.N.C.L.E. is not going to appease her.


This shot of U.S. actress Stephanie Powers was made as a promo for the television series The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., in which she played the wonderfully named spy April Dancer, aka Agent 0022. The show was a spin-off from The Man from U.N.C.L.E., but lasted only one season during 1966-67, which gives us the date range on this photo.

PLENTY MOORE
The woman from U.N.C.L.E.


This nice shot of U.S. actress Barbara Moore was made as a promo for the television show The Man from U.N.C.L.E., on which she made a series of guest appearances as the character Lisa Rogers, Agent 46. And that was pretty much it for Moore. She had bit parts in a couple of movies and appeared on one other network show, before fading from public view. This photo, though, we hope will stay in view for a while, because it's great. It was made in 1967.

DESTINATION HOLLYWOOD
In real life this could only be a road mirage or a carjacking. Anything else would be too good to be true.

Above is a striking photo of U.S. actress Dolores Faith, who had no major roles during her brief career, but is probably best known for the sci-fi b-movie Mutiny in Outer Space, for her guest appearance on The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and for being a world class beauty. We don't have a date on this, but her time in Hollywood lasted only from 1960 to 1966, so take your pick from any of those years.

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.
