Miller In The World Of Girlie Magazines (to 1970)
I'd taken the time to compile this list (thanks in great part to the website California Albums.com) when, wouldn't you know it, I discovered that someone has already done this. Henry Miller And The Nudies: A Bibliography For Readers And Collectors, by Roger Jackson (103 pps, 1996) appears to have the complete index (and maybe articles?). I don't have this book, and, probably, neither do you. So here's my own (likely incomplete) index to 1970.
1957 - July Playboy. Henry has a short 'letter to the editor.' I don't know what it's about.
1959 - Month? Venus. Henry Miller: Pornographer (no other details) .
1959 - July. Rogue. "Article on Henry Miller." Also features the short story "The Hangman" by Harlan Ellison, who was also the magazine editor at the time. (cover at right)
1961 - Oct. Rogue. Big Sur: The Tropic Of Henry Miller. This article is significant in that it was the first published piece for Hunter S. Thompson. Here's a little article about it from Gadfly Online.
1961 - Dec. Scene. "Article on Henry Miller." (cover at left)
1962 - Mar. Bachelor. Henry Miller's Tropic Of Cancer. (cover at the top of page)
1963 - Mar. Sir!. A full-page headshot of Miller for an article about pornography. [poor Henry becomes a posterboy]. Also features Kerouac's The Dharma Bums and a 4-page spread on decorating your bachelor pad.
1964 - Sept. Playboy. A full Playboy interview with Miller, by Bernard Wolfe. I thought I could find this transcribed on-line somewhere, but no luck.
1965 - Mar?. Barred. Profile of Miller and a review of The Rosy Crucifixion trilogy. Also several reviews of "nudie flicks" like The Defilers and Take Off Your Clothes & Live!.
1965 - Apr. Sir!. Interview with Maurice Girodias, founder of Olympia Press, who talks about "discovering" Henry Miller. Actually, his father, Jack Kahane (Obelisk Press) may be in a better position to make such claims.
1965 - May. Hi-Life. "Article on Henry Miller." Also articles by Jayne Mansfield and Sophia Loren, as well as a Tenneessee Willimas interview.
1965 - Dec. Playboy. The Old Neighbourhood by Henry Miller. Henry writes about Brooklyn.
1966 - June. Bachelor. The Sex World Of Henry Miller by Catherine Fox.
1966 - Oct. Broadside. Glittering Pie by Henry Miller (originally from Max And The White Phagocytes)
1970 - June. Playboy. Tropic Of Cancer Revisited. A photo essay of the filming of the film adaptation of Tropic Of Cancer (with Rip Torn as Henry). Henry wrote the accompanying text about the filming and about his stay in Paris during the shoot. According to the PBA Gallery listing of the original document, he wrote it on October 3, 1969.
Incidentally, the PBA Gallery also has a description of the Playboy-Miller correspondance collection (which it sold off a few years ago).
