Auction Editor’s Pick: 120mm Isobel Garcia
The editor’s pick of the upcoming Filthy Gorgeous Auction is a one of a kind 120mm transparency of Isobel Garcia by Bob Guccione.
As an editor, I have the privilege to examine the Filthy Gorgeous archive of original and erotic slides and photographs. In this week’s auction, my pick goes to an original and erotic 120mm transparency of Isobel Garcia.
The February 22, 2014 auction is a compilation of images of a popular era that combined funky music and even funkier babes. The women of the 1970′s were ground breaking for their natural beauty and provocative sexuality. The language of the seventies made scoring with a funky babe a bit tricky. Important definitions such as “skinney” meaning real deal or the truth, “can you dig it”, defined as do you understand what I am saying, “crib” standing for bedroom, “book” translating as “thanks for a good time, I have to leave”, and “bunny”, signifying a cute girl. In this auction you will see 35mm slides and 120mm negatives taken by Penthouse founder Bob Guccione. It showcases models such as Jane Hargrave, Jolanta Von Zmuda, Joanne Latham, Cheryl Rixon and Victoria Johnson just to name a few.
While each piece in this timeless collection is stunning, my editor’s pick, again, goes to lot #124, an original and erotic 120mm transparency of Isabel Garcia by Bob Guccione in 1972.
Some fans might have seen Isobel Garcia before her Penthouse premiere in their seventh anniversary issue in one of the countless spanish-produced films that Isobel has graced as an actress, dancer, and singer. These well-integrated talents have come naturally to this daughter of a Spanish father and a black African mother. Indeed, Isobel’s mixed blessings (39-25-36) make her a screen presence of rare interest, less prurient than primarily provocative in her accent on the unusual.
