In fact, it is!... Welcome back!
Here again we have Shirley Levitt and Ruth Field in another look at the impressive 1950 series, referred to in the past.
The D-400 series, as you’ll recall, also features Loraine Durane in some early, striking Irving Klaw enabled images.
This is Loraine Durane. With the paddle.
And while we're on the subject, here we have Eric Stanton's impressive interpretation, commissioned by Irving Klaw and presented in 1953. (Note: Duchess of the Bastille - (1953 - Feb./June) – 30 episodes/pages … later renamed “Cruel Duchess of The Bastille” in Nutrix book form.)
But back to 1950 and live models!
Irving Klaw's masked ladies would not end with the D-400 series. His HK-1 series*, which was advertised in the 31st Edition of Cartoon and Model Parade and possibly shot in the apartment of "Little John," would also feature masked-Fem-Dom shenanigans. Let's a take a look.
Of course, the image of the masked woman (in leather) was, like most fetish iconography, of European origin, which may account for part of its exotic "strangeness" to American sensibilities. The image below was among those sold by Irving Klaw's predecessor, Charles Guyette. (Before he was sentenced to prison.) Quite beautiful, wouldn't you say?
