Parade [1960s]

Parade was a continuation of Blighty, a patriotic war-time pin-up magazine. By the 1960s, Parade was a general weekly newsstand magazine running slightly risque stories of the kind you could find in a lot of men's adventure magazines, but also continuing the pin-ups on the covers and (topless) nudity from Blighty. In this period, each issue also carried an installment of an adaptation of a current movie. These were each done in four episodes and anonymously adapted a lot of movies not otherwise novelised, amongst them 'The Italian Job'.

It was relaunched in 1983 as a typical British porn mag.
