Penthouse Prints Photos
from the Roswell Case?

Sept., 1996 Issue,
Page 150

The year of 1996 is a sign that people within the media are no longer going to tolerate not printing the truth. Whether the photographs shared in this issue of Penthouse are real or not, it is a clear sign that the people in the US (and probably the whole world) want to know the truth. The one images contained on this page which is from this article, comes from the Art Bell Web Site and looks remarkably like the three images we posted last year, which came out of Hong Kong but were disputed to be the Grey Dummy sitting in the UFO Museum in Roswell, New Mexico which was donated by the producer of the movie called "Roswell" done by Showtime last year that was used in their film. In any case, since it appears to be the same photos, we might as well give some information being shared about them in the next go-around.

NEW YORK -- (ENTERTAINMENT WIRE)--July 29, 1996--Three photographs taken by the U.S. military of the autopsy of an alien from outer space are being published nationally for the first time in the September issue of Penthouse magazine, which has challenged the government to acknowledge their authenticity.

The images, which were obtained clandestinely by Penthouse for its 27th anniversary issue from unidentified sources, show the head and upper torso, hands and mid-section of a being of indeterminate sex that looks remarkably human-like. In an accompanying story, the magazine's editor-in-chief and publisher Bob Guccione said the images are "incontrovertible evidence, from a film that has been suppressed for decades, that mankind is not alone in the universe."

Guccione said he has sent a copy of the September Penthouse to Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Ronald Fogleman so that the published photos can be matched against the complete film record he says was made of the autopsy.

"I am convinced that these are 100 percent genuine photos of an alien but the government will never admit it because to do so would acknowledge a coverup of the existence of life beyond our solar system," Guccione said. He said he has posted extra guards at the magazine's printing plant and warehouse to make sure that distribution of the magazine is not disrupted. The magazine goes on sale July 30 and copies will be sealed in plastic envelopes.

"A photograph of Jesus Christ might be a comparable story to the first real photo of an extraterrestrial," Guccione said. "Otherwise, there's nothing that compares to this," according to Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione, who was interviewed for an accompanying story by former Omni magazine editor Keith Ferrell.

(Editor's Note: In this article Mr. Ferrell also shares that he was involved as the editor of Omni Magazine for six years and that he worked on the monthly UFO Update section which was supported by Mr. Guccione. They tried to deal with the UFO situation was very serious, scientific and rational but each time they contacted the government to explore more details on various cases they only met censorship, denial, dismissal and misdirection. It makes one very suspicious I would think when a party claiming they have nothing to hide does everything possible to find a reason why they either have no information or can't provide any information ... Illinois)

In recent weeks, Time and Newsweek and other media have published extensive stories on investigations into the possibility that the Earth has been visited by life-forms from outer space. Surveys indicate that up to 48 percent of Americans believe that aliens have actually visited Earth. The motion picture "Independence Day," with an alien-invasion theme, broke box office records in its opening weeks.

Guccione said the photos were obtained from the daughter of a German scientist who escaped to America at the outset of World War II and worked with Einstein and Oppenheimer on high-level research projects. Separately, he was involved in the investigation of the crash of a mysterious spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico, in the late 1940s. Neither the scientist nor his daughter were identified by the magazine.

The photos published by Penthouse were secretly copied from a filmed record of the autopsy of the remains of one of the victims of the Roswell crash. Although the crash was investigated by U.S. military personnel, which is reported to have conducted the autopsy, no official government reports of the post mortem have ever been released of the event that has been widely chronicled in UFO literature. The Penthouse photos are not related to a dramatized reenactment of the Roswell alien autopsy incident that was carried recently by Fox-TV.

"The pictures from the autopsy have never been seen in the national press until now. Other copies, originally shared with a close colleague, have appeared in the Japanese media and a few esoteric UFO magazines with extremely limited circulation," Guccione maintains.

"With the publication of these pictures I challenge the government to acknowledge the existence of the complete motion-picture documentation of alien presence on Earth," Guccione said. (Page 150; Interview available with Bob Guccione and Keith Ferrell)

(Editor's Note: Apparent Bob Guccionni appeared on CNBC to discuss his issue with the Alien Photos ... here was some feedback on the show)

Bob Guccionni was there, hawking his new issue of Penthouse. The most interesting picture shown from the magazine, if I may be so sexist, was the lovely looking young lady on the cover. The alien photographs appear, at least to me, to be the same ones that appeared in the recent past from the orient that have been identified (as Kevin Randle informed us) as the alien mock-up in Roswell, from the Showtime movie.

What I found more interesting was what Guccionni had to say about the pictures story. According to Guccionni, the pictures were given to Penthouse free of charge (unlike the AP reported rumor of a $200,000 paycheck). The mystery lady is the daughter of a German scientist who defected after WWII.

Here is where it gets potentially easy to check. In 1947, according to Guccionni, this lady was 12 or 13 years old. Additionally, she was living with her father in Roswell, New Mexico. I'm not sure, but I think it would be rather easy to check if a German scientist was living in Roswell at that time. And if there were more than one, how many had pre-teen girls? Maybe I'm wrong, I don't really know, but it seems to be a point that COULD be checked.

Anyway, this scientist is suposed to have worked on The Philadelphia Project with Oppenhimer. Earlier interviews with Guccionni had indicated that he worked with Enstien on some top secret WWII projects, but that wouldn't be historically accurate. Guccionni didn't mention Enstien on this show.

The film was reported to have been special film made only for the army, and only in 1947, as indicated by various markings on the film. This film was, according to Guccionni, only issued during 1947. It was 16mm color film.

Additionally, Guccionni, who also publishes Omni (when it's published),claims that Omni researchers have a red powder from an Abductee. This powder was, according to the abductee, used to "powder" the abductee prior to experimentation (I think).

Also, Guccionni claimed that the picture came from Japan, and that the Japanesse Government claimed it was a drowned Japanesse sailor.

Hopkins (and this is my hooray from earlier) immediatly questioned the pictures as those of the dummy from the showtime movie and Roswell Museum. Guccionni claimed that the dummy must have been made from the photos.

Overall, I was less than impressed with Guccionni.
