More Pulp, and a Little Noir

This comes under the category of retiree wastes his days on the Internet...


Actually, searching on Snappy Magazine or Breezy Stories brings up a wealth of info on the pulp mags 1910-1960 or so, as well as lots more fun cover art.  And the background stories of the pulp publishing companies is equally, well, trashy...

And just for the hell of it, in a femme fatale direction, a photo of my favorite bad girl of film noir, Lizabeth Scott...


Well, it is late at night at the moment...  and thoughts turn dark...

I watched my DVD of "Dead Reckoning" last week and thoroughly savored her performance as she kept Humphrey Bogart off-balance until the very end. My earliest memory of seeing one of Bogie's pictures was this one as a kid. I fixated on the parachute metaphor, and didn't learn where it actually occurred for at least 30 years. Film noir women definitely are something else.

My favorite Liz Scott movie is Pitfall with Dick Powell. What a smoky seductress! The whole movie is filled with snappy dialog, Dick Powell made some great Noirs... hard to believe he was more famous as a song an dance man.

Just found out Lizabeth Scott passed away at 92 on January 31, 2015. She left quite a movie legacy, particularly for us Film Noir fans.
