The Evil Queen

Rehearsals on Snow White and the Huntsman were often done on cheaper sets before the costuming for the minor characters had been finalized. Hence we see in this rare still the actress Charlize Theron in full costume on a cheap wooden set, the extra behind her not yet outfitted. The poor girl was sweating so profusely under the hot studio lights she opted for nearly the minimum clothing possible (keeping the panties was a wise choice given the cheap scratchy brown rope). By the time shooting began, the scene was cut from the script, whence this photo has not been published until now.

The Black Cat

Another never finished production was an R-rated version of Edgar Allen Poe’s The Black Cat starring Leonardo di Caprio and Kate Winslet fresh from their appearance in Titanic. The advertising campaign was all laid out: “The Titanic stars of the screen now appearing in a Titanic tale of terror by the Titan of Terror himself.” Unfortunately, an earthquake destroyed the sets and the production company could not raise enough to rebuild them and the film was never completed. Winslet acquired the only footage of the scene pictured here and destroyed it, feeling that her writhing was more erotic than horrifying.

John Willie – another masterpiece by Bélier Press – “Possibilities

Many of us who follow the bondage fetish and admire damsels in distress owe a debt to some of the courageous early pioneers who, in times far more repressive than these, braved ridicule, censorship and even their freedom to express themselves in art and photography.  I will only mention one here:  John Willie.

I was delighted to be contacted by Bélier Press with a notice that they had released a new work, a coffee-table quality volume with significant unreleased work by John Willie.

There are two principle works regarding the great John Willie: the new edition:  “Possibilities” and the “The Adventures of Sweet Gwendoline”.

I purchased a “Deluxe Edition” of the Perils of Sweet Gwendoline” and I plan to purchase the “Deluxe Limited Edition” the new “Possibilities”.

I encourage all my readers to do yourself a great favor, and avail yourself of obtaining these fine authorized publications.

I was referred by Bélier Press to this review on The Fetishistas e-zine.

I send out my best wishes for a successful book release to Bélier Press and I call on all my subscribers to this list to purchase their incredible works of a man whom I call “The Father of Modern Bondage”:  John Willie.

Discipline Day at the Clinic

Dr. Craig’s Psychiatric Hospital for Troubled Women is noted for the humane treatment of its inmates. Thus we employ female guards orderlies for the comfort of our prisoners clients. Our treatment is firm, but fair. In the photograph above you see one of the more troublesome inmates being firmly but fairly disciplined for an infraction of the rules, all under the watchful eyes of two members of our staff.
