It was just a skip and a jump from there to ask them to photograph bathing beauties in the most immodest suits and practically nude artist's models. The final leap was made in issue #72 where the reader was delighted to find his centerfold pin-up completely nude.

Photographers such as André de Diénès, who would continue his career in America to become Marylin Monroe's favorite photographer, and poster artists like Brénot, who would go on to a successful and lucrative commercial career, combined their talents in the first issues.

Next came Roland Carré, photographer at the prestigious Harcourt Studio, who would impose his artistic style on what were to be the hay days of the magazine which then became the (in)famous "Folies de Paris et de Hollywood" in 1953.

Note that as of issue #139 of "Paris-Hollywood" all the ingredients necessary for a huge success were already reunited. Strip teases in 3-Ds, and other strip teases featuring amateur models like the cashier of the corner "Grand Café" in frilly lingerie from the "Gai Trousseau" shop, were there to delight pimply-faced school boys with their opulent curves.

The short lived "Beautés de paris et de Hollywood" preceded the "Folies", literally speaking.
