Man those are some short shorts in the first pic! They look cronstricting.

Ah, Jean Rogers - how she got past the Hays office in that costume remains a mystery even today...

Wow. After two years of 'Critical Issues' in art school, I can't possibly not see those weapons as phallic prosthetics.

Especially the fourth shot.

Wish I could, 'cause I love me the retro rayguns!

Oh, and spacegirls. I also loves me the spacegirls.

Bradda-
Oh dear...I really didn't notice how short until you pointed that out...ah Buster Crabbe has the legs to pull it off :)

Captain-
Yeah she's right up there with Maureen O'Sullivan in the amazingly beautiful file.

Arkonbey-
Yeah the positioning on that fourth photograph is quite suggestive...gosh in a couple of different ways.

And that Grordbort site rocks! Thanks for the link!

Jean Rogers + skimpy outfits = HOT HOT HOT

It strikes me that the actress and actor from the movie version of Flash Gordon look a helluva lot like their predecessors from the old serial.

Captain Incredible said...

Amazingly beautiful - absolutely!

And what a file it is...

Becca said...

Dr. Monkey-
Yes those outfits are so great!

Dean-
They do actually. Of course the Buster Crabbe Gordon and the Queen movie are very, very heavily influenced by the original comic strip and in places look identical to the strip. Very cool!

Captain-
So beautiful!
