All the photographs in this post are used courtesy of Cara Rule, an expert on the strange, almost otherworldly Hollywood aerie known as The Spiderpool. From Cara: "A director of 1920's silents built himself a wacky house in the Cahuenga pass using old sets. His parties were supposedly legendary. He then built this pool on a hill next to it which also had a somewhat exotic design and was covered in all sorts of tile....including a mosaic of a spider in a web. It is believed that the owner sent away to tile manufacturers for samples to cover the pool because there were so many different varieties. He either lent or rented out the pool for nudie shoots (extremely tame by our modern standards) which continued after his death into the 60's at which point the pool was condemned and ultimately destroyed. What remains is incredibly charming and well worth the hike to get to it as it is surrounded by private property."
The director Cara mentioned was writer/actor/director John W. "Jack" McDermott, who was extremely active in Hollywood up until the 1930s, directing The Love Thief (1926), Manhattan Madness (1925), The Bum Bomb (1918) & The Spider & The Rose (1923), & acting in over 30 films, including Romeo of the Coal Wagon (1916), Fashion & Fury (1916), Ham Takes a Chance (1916) & The Eveless Eden Club.
I'm fairly sure all of the color Tura Satana (May she rest in peace) photographs are by the great film actor/director Harold Lloyd. Here's more of his nudie work: Link
The other photographs from the 40s & 50s were most likely taken by Bizarre magazine's noted fetish photographer John Willie or photographers from House of Milan, a studio specializing in bondage magazines & movies.
