Do you remember the television series LOVE THAT BOB/THE BOB CUMMINGS SHOW (1955 to 1959). It starred Bob Cummings as Bob Collins, a suave ladies man and photographer working in Hollywood, and his interactions with his models, family and secretary. Bob Collins was the first pin-up photographer that I was introduced to. And though he was a womanizer he was still depicted as being more or less a nice guy.

That wasn't always the case for glamour popular fiction where they were quite often depicted as "sharp-shooters" taking advantage of innocent young girls from "Small Town, America" who come to big cities with stars in their eyes. This was often the case in exploitation paperbacks and grind house movies.
This made for interesting reading and movie viewing. But there was probably nothing further from the truth. How much business would a pin-up photographer get once they got a reputation as being a skirt-chaser? But of course that's what young boys fantasized about. Scoring with the models they saw in "girlie mags". And of course teenaged boys were under the impression that these photogs were getting this action. This was reinforced by Russ Meyers who had married two of his models and dated a number of others.
