Marina the Fire Eating Mermaid
It's no fish story how we caught hold of this Modern
Femme Fatale. Her name is Marina the Fire Eating Mermaid
and she has been seen all around the US swimming in such tourist joints
as the legendary Wreck Bar in Florida. Yes, she is a professional mermaid.
And yes, she does eat fire. (But not at the same time.) This sea-going
siren was also featured (in and out of water) in Bachelor Pad Magazine.
Want to learn more about this gal? (And yes, she knows that you want to
know more about her mermaid tail and shell bra.) Read on in this exclusive
interview with the lovely Marina the Fire Eating Mermaid!

Interview and Gallery>>>
Joan Bradshaw, a ravishing brunette
with big brown eyes, was well known to readers of men’s magazines in the
mid 1950’s through the early 1960’s. This Texas beauty started her modeling
career in her teens winning beauty titles in her home state. She then packed
up and moved out to the west coast to try her hand the 1953 Miss Universe
title. She didn’t get it, but stuck around and found small roles on TV
(appearing in shows such as “Dragnet”) and a few movies (all forgettable).
Her tail of the tape came in at 38-23-36,
which earned her the nickname of “The Bust of MGM.” She was also know as
the favorite arm candy of many celebrities including the King of Rock and
Roll himself. Besides the usual selection of men’s magazines like “Modern
Man,” “Jem” and “Carabet,” she also appeared in the October 1956 issue
of Playboy. She had the look that cheesecake photographers loved. Besides
girlie magazines, she also appeared in several how-to photography digest
including the cover of Earl Leaf’s “Photographing Women of the World.”
Now if IMDB is to be believed, this gal went
from pin-up and bit-part actress to Unit Production Manager to the TV show
“Amazing Stories” and movies like “Back to the Future II” and Executive
Producer to films like “Road to Perdition” and “Cast Away.” Not a bad way
to wind up.
