As “Carol” in pictorial “Wet Dream Seduction”. These photos were published by Lude magazine in 1977, although they are clearly from the same shoot as the photos in the “Air Screw” article from Sexuality magazine which came out in 1975 (credit to original uploader)

The Playbirds - Tie-In Novelisation

The Novelisation of “The Playbirds” featuring MM and Pat Astley as themselves, Gloria Brittain pretending to be Busty Bibi Forbes and Howard Nelson pretending to be a werewolf.

The novelisation was also published in magazine form with the same cover. The magazine version contains many more explicit photos but omits the book’s final chapters in favour of a “to find out how the story ends go see the film currently playing at…” type blurb.

S.E magazine 1978 (Swedish)

Britain’s smallest policewoman in a Swedish magazine (scans courtesy of RBT Foot).

According to Google’s never 100% accurate translation service the text in the last page translates into English as:

Her name is Mary and she is a police officer.
The film “The Playbirds” is about a sex murderer and it becomes Mary's task to arrest him.

In private Mary works in a shop that sells sex gadgets

“And I do not want to change my job and become a policewoman. I see them sometimes on the street outside my shop and their job seems to be walking in heavy clothes and shoes”

Now, take off your uniforms Policewomen.

Continental Film Review Feb 1979

Promoting “The Playbirds” in the pages of Continental Film Review (No. 4, Vol.27). By sheer coincidence the cover of this issue features sometime Millington co-star Rosemary England, complete with drawn on knickers so CFR could use the picture for its cover.
