Actress Carol Lynley and a
& menstruation booklet
Dey, the American actress
Carol Lynley, who made dozens of
films from the 1960s to the
present day (among others, Under
the Yum-Yum Tree, The Cardinal and
The Pleasure Seekers), made her
menstrual hygiene ad as a teenage
model, and two years later
appeared on the cover of Life
magazine; she was the top junior
mannequin in New York, having
started as a pre-teen. She modeled
clothing in the Sears, Roebuck
catalogs of the time.
Below this we see, incredibly, a
Carol Lynley paper doll,
appearing in 1960, when she was
18. And, a little later, she posed
nude for Playboy magazine
(bottom of page).
The ad is for the Modess booklet
I tell my daughter" from the
September 1955, when she was 13.

appeared on the cover and was also
the subject of a biography within
as a 17-year-old, in January 1959.

She was 23 when
this picture crossed the fold, but
not the centerfold, of the March
1965 Playboy, after Lynley had
divorced, had a child, and had
long since given up "regular"
modeling for the movies.
