(photographer, cult film maker, and patron saint of dirty old men) had a
knack at finding women with large...uh...talents. Case in point, California
burlesque cutie Virginia "Ding-Dong" Bell. In the era of buxom
bombshells like June Wilkinson
and other big-named strippers like
Tempest Storm, Virginia Bell
is the mountain among the molehills. Packing a 48-24-36 figure into a
five-foot-two-inch (!) frame, Virginia Bell really but the
"bump" in bump and grind. Even though her career was short, she sure made an
impact into the glamour/pin-up culture. And impact that lives on today. It
seems she has as many fans now as she did during the height of her career
over forty years ago.
Most of her famous pictorials, done by Meyer,
basically show Bell doing her dance routine...which shouldn't
be seen by anyone with a heart condition. In fact, it's hard to open a men's
magazine from the late 1950's and not find a photo of the buxom miss
Bell. Besides her famous pictorials, Bell also
appeared in many film loops including the famous 1964 nudie-cutie flick
"Bell, Bare and Beautiful."
one of the earliest big boob models, she was a burlesque star and did
numerous photo shoots and a few films that are available in videos today.
