STILL KICKING
Rika Aoki has plenty of fight left in her.

This poster was made to promote the pinku film Konketsui Rika, aka Rika the Mixed-Blood Girl, starring Rika Aoki. We showed you another high kicking promo for the same film a while back. See that and our write-up on the movie here.

TROPICAL HEAT
Getting there was a long and difficult journey, but now he's finally going to explore the bush.

You can figure out the story here, right? The title and cover combine to sort of give it away. Bored rich girl Teresa Porter, who's married to linguist Julian Porter, is dragged along on a two-year research trip to the Belgian Congo along with her hot young lover Allan, who is her husband's assistant. Literarily speaking, Africa has been the end of tougher people than these three, so you know they're going to have myriad troubles. The interracial aspect suggested by the cover blurb does not apply to lover Allan, but Edmund Schiddel adds subplots along those lines, as you'd expect from any author working in the African milieu. The copyright on this is 1956, and the art is uncredited.

TOP MODEL
Boys, there's no need to fight over me. I can be icy and unobtainable enough for both of you.

A couple of months back we shared a cover from Spain's Ediciones G.P. for Franck Marchal's Natalia enciende la mecha, which we mentioned was part of a series written by French authors Pierre Aspetéguy and Monique Henry. Above is the first entry in that series, simply titled Natalia, featuring the 1959 debut of their part-time fashion model/full-time ass whipping super spy. We're sharing this today because we've dug up some new info on the series—we couldn't identify the cover artist on the previous example, but we we think this one may have been painted by a Spanish artist who called himself or herself Chaco. That's all the info we have, but we'll keep digging. Anyone out there know anything? Drop us a line.

ERINA'S PLACE
Miyai's indoor escapades continue in installment eighteen of Nikkatsu's popular series.

This poster was made to promote the roman porno flick Danchizuma: Okasareta hada, known in English as Apartment Wife: Violated Skin, eighteenth entry in the Apartment Wife series launched by Nikkatsu Corporation in 1971. Erina Miyai stars again, and we can't imagine there are many surprises eighteen entries into the series, but we couldn't find a copy so all you get is the poster. And the promo photo below. Danchizuma: Okasareta hada premiered in Japan today in 1977.

BILL COMES DUE
Bill Edwards paperback art gains new recognition.

Bill Edwards' profile as a paperback illustrator has risen considerably in recent years. Like others who painted for sleaze imprints, it is not so much his technical ability that has garnered the attention, but rather the subject matter and a strong style. Edwards is a guy whose work you can identify in a millisecond. His women almost always have sharp cheekbones, ski jump noses, and a prominent beauty mark. The cover above for Rick Rand's New Girl in Town shows you all three elements up close. Edwards was also prolific like few other painters, which makes finding his work easy. Below are many more illustrations, some for novels with subject matter well beyond the pale, and we have other Edwards pieces populating Pulp Intl., for example here, here, and here.

CERTIFIED PLATINUM
Nothing can dim the luster of precious things.

Remember the Technicolor lithographs we shared a while back that had acetate overlays? Today we have another. In the top version the model is wearing a cartoon nightie and in the version below that you see her in the altogether. These after-the-fact cover-ups rarely look good, but today they're collectible, which just goes to show how years and scarcity are a sort of temporal alchemy that turn lead into gold. Speaking of precious metals, the print is titled “Platinum Beauty.” As a bonus, below is a version of the litho with an advertising strip at top (where a business of some sort would insert a logo). The date on that one is 1962, but we aren't sure about the overlay versions above. The seller claims 1951 but we're highly doubtful of that. Also, we think acetate versions tended to come later than advertising versions, but we have no evidence to support that theory. It's just a feeling. In any case, you get three versions of a beautiful platinum haired model, so that makes it a good day, right?

DRAGON LADY
Trouble is breathing down her neck.

Above, an eyecatching piece of Jef de Wulf art fronting Le dragon vert, or The Green Dragon, written by Bob Arnal for Editions de la Flamme d'Or. Basically, it's Fu Manchu style Asian Peril fiction about a nefarious criminal organization known as Green Dragon, majorly uncool Chinese cocaine dealers planning to extend their long reach into Europe. 1953 copyright.

FORSA OF NATURE
Blood isn't the only thing this vampire wants to suck.

This Japanese poster was made to promote the run of the West German sexploitation movie Der Fluch der schwarzen Schwestern, which translates to “curse of the black sisters,” but which for its English release was titled The Devil's Plaything, as well as Plaything of the Devil and Vampire Ecstasy. Last time we saw Swedish sex symbol Marie Forså she was using a giant zucchini for something other than nutrition. Here phallic items prove useful yet again. Forså and three other women are stranded in a castle by a storm. The workers in this gothic pile are secretly priestesses intent upon engineering the rebirth of their vampire mistress who was put to death 400 years ago. The details don't really matter. Here's what you get: naked dancing girls, continual bongo drumming, dick shaped candles, and lots of softcore lezzie action, with occasional token guys mixed in for variety. It's of course tender young Forså who seems the most susceptible to the ancient vampiress. Can she escape with her soul intact? Only a viewing will answer that question for you. We won't recommend the movie but we'll say this much—it's ludicrous, but very sexy. Der Fluch der schwarzen Schwestern opened in West Germany in October 1973 and premiered in Japan today the same year.

CHARACTER STUDIES
Long live the King—in Yellow, that is.

The interesting cover above for Five Sinister Characters was painted by Paul Stahr and fronts a Raymond Chandler short story collection composed of "Trouble is My Business,” “Pearls Are a Nuisance,” “I'll Be Waiting,” “The Red Wind,” and “The King in Yellow.” Lovecraft fans probably know that last title via its usage by Robert W. Chambers for his 1895 collection of weird stories, which you see at right, but Chandler's “King in Yellow” is unrelated. Chandler's tale involves a tough guy bandleader named King Leopardi who wears yellow suits, while Chambers' collection is, well, weird. But Chandler knew of Chambers and he also knew of Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos, of which Chambers' fiction is considered a part. Midway through Chandler's tale a character says, “The King in Yellow. I read a book with that title once.” A clear reference to Chambers' macabre work. The influence of that work continues to grow over time—it even made an impact on the first season of True Detective. Originally published by Avon in 1944, this edition of Five Sinister Characters appeared as part of Avon's Murder Mystery Monthly series in 1945. Recommended stuff.

701 CLUB
Yumi Yumi Yumi puts her knife in your tummy.

A couple a years ago we wrote briefly about and shared a poster for the Yumi Takigawa headlined pinku flick Shin joshuu sasori: 701-gô, aka New Female Prisoner Scorpion: 701. Above is another poster from the film, actually the standard poster, as opposed to the bo-ekibari, or horizontal two-piece we showed you before. It's a great image, as is the very Yumi shot of Takigawa below. See the other poster here.

1933—Prohibition Ends in United States
Utah becomes the 36th U.S. state to ratify the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution, thus establishing the required 75% of states needed to overturn the 18th Amendment which had made the sale of alcohol illegal.
