Which brings me to this, the first installment of what I hope will be another semi-regular feature on bare•bones, in which I feature rarities from my Caroline Munro collection. For this first installment, I thought I'd go back to a very early Munro collectible - her appearance in Adam magazine at age 19 (under the misspelling "Carolyn Munroe").
November 1968, Vol. 12 No. 11
From the contents page: "Carolyn Munroe" (sic) sounds like the sex symbol she is
Carolyn Munroe (sic) may be a sound-alike of the late Marilyn Monroe, but when it comes to looks, she's like original, man! A comment in Sheilah Graham's column put us on her trail. We called Paramount studios, since she was working on the film Where's Jack? with Tommy Steele and Stanley Baker. She was a mystery—nobody knew anything. The film was being filmed in Ireland and all publicity was handled there.
Our photographer in England finally arranged an interview, though, and now the cat is out of the bag. She's beautiful, all right, but she's not at all like Marilyn. Her long legs, dark hair, fiery eyes and sensuous mouth are strictly Carolyn Munroe (sic)—star material.
Carolyn (sic) lives in London with her family. Being an outdoor girl, she commutes to Brighton, a south coastal town, on weekends, where she swims and takes brisk walks along the cliff tops with her pet Yorkshire terrier, Fido.
If you can't visit our cover girl there, try writing her in care of Paramount Pictures, Hollywood, California.
