Site Update – Slowly But Surely

Hello everyone, this is Manny Calavera from the Vintage Cuties Blog. I just wanted to let you all know that I am still hard at work trying to get the new site up and running. However, the migration is very tedious and taxing. I try to tackle a little bit every day while adding tweaks to the forum system. You all may have noticed that regular posts have come to a halt on this site and that’s because I have essentially put all my time and effort into the new space. I originally though that the new site would be done in only three months. Now, it is looking like the site won’t be finished until the end of the summer. While this makes me upset, I know that it will worth it – to have independence from third-party file hosting companies.

Nonetheless, I have missed some big time windows that now serve as lessons that some opportunities only come once. While I have been working on the new site, several rare films and photos have gone up for auction that are one of a kind. These commanded huge prices and I knew that holding a crowdfunding campaign to amass funds to procure these pieces was the only option. After that, I could have theoretically taken these films and photos, transferred them digitally, and distributed digital copies to those who pledged. I think this is most optimal solution for procuring and preserving rare and expensive pieces of vintage erotica. Unfortunately, cannot do this until I get the new site running and garner a dedicated viewership who will be willing to either donate to these causes and/or spread the word of said causes.

 

One of these bigger windows of opportunity I missed out on was a one-of-a-kind home nudie movie of the legendary Margaret Nolan. This is being sold by a private collector at an exorbitant price and would require me to travel to London England myself just to procure the film. Still, I have setup a Go Fund Me campaign in an effort to raise funds so that I can acquire, preserve and restore this rare film of Ms. Nolan. You can go to it by clicking HERE. It’s called the Margaret Nolan Film Restoration Effort. My hope is that, in the future, I’ll have enough donations and support to the point where I can go about doing this sort of work as a pseudo career. Until that happens, I’ll continue doing the lord’s work and preserve and provide vintage erotica to those interested. Take care!

 

Rare Discovery: Photo Print Of The Ladybirds Of Denmark

Hello everyone, this is Manny from the Vintage Cuties Blog. While trolling Ebay for vintage stag films on either 8mm or 16mm, I came across this photo print. It is of the Ladybirds from Denmark. The print itself came straight from Frederiksberg, Denmark and it is an original photo print as opposed to being a reproduction.

I’m not as familiar with the Danish Ladybirds, so I can’t identify all the band members. Here are the details of this acquisition:

Original/Reprint: Original Print
Date of Creation: 1960-1969
Photo Type: Snapshot
Listed By: Dealer or Reseller
Region of Origin: Europe
Size Type/Largest Dimension: 17 x 23 cm
Color: Black & White
Country/Region of Manufacture: Denmark
Price Paid: 15.00 USD + 4.45 USD

Entertaining The Idea Of Patreon

Hello everyone, Many here. I’m still very hard at work migrating all the content from this free site over to the new paid and hosted WordPress iteration. It is still a long, grueling process. However, everything is looking great and shaping up nicely. Whenever I take breaks, I take the opportunity to add things to the forum framework.

In other news, I have been tinkering around with the idea of using Patreon as a way for folks to support my vintage erotica preservation work. This would just be another avenue to help the new Vintage Cuties Blog to become a self-sustaining website that serves as a virtual museum for vintage erotica and model identification. Again, I’ll have to mess around with it a bit more before I make a decision as to whether or not I’ll end up using it. Until the next time, take care!

Forums Coming To The New Vintage Cuties Blog!

Forums Coming To The New Vintage Cuties Blog!

Hello, this is Manny from the Vintage Cuties Blog with a small announcement. I have been working as hard as possible on the new website for the blog and am still working on migrating all the preexisting content over. While taking breaks from content migration and re-rendering our videos, I have been tinkering around with various plugins that are compatible with my version of the WordPress software. I have had great conversations with some of the folks who have supported this site by visiting and other means and have always wanted to continue these dialogues. With that, I figured out how to integrate a forum system plugin that seamlessly works with my new blog site layout. Here is what the new forum system looks like so far:

I have sections for general discussion along with one for vintage erotica focused discourse. Also, I have added sections for jokes/humor topics for levity during these crazy times we live in. Lastly, because I happen to be an avid gamer, I have a section for people to discuss gaming. Throughout my experiences in running this website, I’ve noticed that most of the guys who enjoy this vintage erotica also love gaming. Who knew?

This is, of course, a very rough skeleton framework. If anyone has any advice and/or suggestions on how to arrange the forum or what sections you would like to see, please let me know. My email mannycalavera5757@gmail.com.

Rare Discovery: 8mm Exotica Nudie Film Starring Paula Page Titled: “Paula Paige #2”

This is Manny Calavera from the Vintage Cuties Blog with a pretty special update. As you all know, I love searching for and procuring new films through public and private auctions. Here is an old exotica film I just claimed and it is a great find. It is a nudie reel starring the busty British model Paula Page! She was a favorite of photographer Harrison Marks, but this film was apparently not shot nor produced by him.

For some reason she is referred to as ‘Paula Paige,’ as the film is titled “Paula Paige #2.” However, there is no mistaking her amazingly large torpedo breasts nor her plump and curvaceous body. In the film Paula poses while topless, displaying that friendly eroticism that is distinct to her personality in front of the camera.

We already have a couple of Paula Page films and many photos of her in the Vintage Cuties collection, but we have yet to get our hands on original films and photos of her. It’s a shame because Paula is one of my favorite models. I just love all of her curves and she just has such a classic look about her. Finally, I have an original film print featuring her to publish on the site! Here are the rest of the stills from the auction:

Here are all the technical details for the film:

Film Name: Paula Paige #2
Model Name: Paula Page
Film Format: 8mm
Film Type: Black & White
Length: 50ft
Running Time: Roughly 5mins
Date Of Film: 1950s
Genre: Exotica, Nudie
Final Price: 45.00 USD (Claimed) + 7.00 USD (Shipping)
