When 27-year-old Hugh Hefner launched his debut Playboy Magazine, with “Sweetheart of the Month” Marilyn Monroe gracing the cover in December of 1953, he had no idea that it would become a world wide success.
The famous women of the 1950’s that appeared in Playboy Magazine include Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Tina Louise, Joan Arnold, Kim Novak, and Brigitte Bardot.
Photographers and artists like Carlyle Blackwell, Bruno Bernard and Zoe Moezert paid $50/hr for nude models to pose..... Many of their models became Hollywood Stars.
Today Bruno Bernard is remembered as the man who immortalized and mastered the art of pin-up photography. He has been called "King of Glamour" and Rembrandt of Photography.
His daughter Susan Bernard is in charge of his photographs. His website can be viewed at Bernard of Hollywood. Susan Bernard's book Marilyn Intimate Exposure is available on amazon.com.
