GLBT OR NOT GLBT
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.

Here’s a little piece of modern pulp we found in a bar in Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain. We had just finished a round of tasty apple-flavored shots, and there it was on the bartop at a place called Akerbeltz. The magazine is called Gehitu, and it’s published by a GLBT rights organization based in Northern Spain. The magazine is nicely put together, promotes a cause we respect, and is filled with events information, but what interests us most is their usage of an iconic photo of Ursula Andress, who they’ve given winglike appendages and depicted as wounded but unbowed. If we assume this is a visual reference to Hamlet’s famous “To Be or Not To Be” soliloquy, then it’s a poignant and clever rebranding. Since we started this website we’ve discovered that small magazines, flyers and pamphlets are goldmines of pulp styled art. In those media we tend to find creators who truly get what pulp is about. We’ve been picking up these bits and pieces, and with today’s post have shared one of our many finds. We’ll have more for you down the line.

DOKTOR WOE
Excellent spy flick sentenced to late night limbo.

Fräulein Doktor is an Italian production, despite the German title. And though said title conjures up images of lez sexploitation (at least it does for us), it’s actually an artful film made with what was at the time a substantial budget. Though there are pulp elements, it presents a serious discussion about the horrors of war, and the emotional sacrifices made by its Mata Hari-like central character, played by the über-hot Suzy Kendall. Despite these positives, the film performed poorly upon release and was re-edited to remove its lesbianism, then relegated to late night television, where it languishes to this day. But it has a devoted cult following, so a DVD re-release is not completely out of the question. Time will tell. Fräulein Doktor premiered in Italy today in 1969.

PUBLIC APPROVAL
At least two people think this is going to be a really good flick.

We first saw this teaser art for the upcoming British flick Lesbian Vampire Killers a couple of weeks ago and were debating whether to post it. We’d decided it was widely enough available without our efforts, but the more we looked at it the more we liked it, so here you go. Question now is, can the movie ever be as thumbs-up as the teaser art?

MISS LONELY PARTS
Before you can love another person you have to love yourself.

The only thing that could make this cover better is if she were real and not just an amazing painting by Paul Rader. And also if we could substitute the mirror for a window and put ourselves on the other side, hiding in some bushes in her yard. Or is that creepy? Anyway, the cover asks if a hunger so strong can be so wrong. We answer: not if it makes you do this.
