Vintage Pulp Sep 14 2010
These posters look a bit like scenes from our last week.

Above, we have an assortment of posters for Italian sex documentaries, circa 1960s, with art by Manfredo Borsi and others. You may have noticed that of late we’ve had a lot of information-free posts on the site, and this is another one, but we have a good excuse—marriage. Yes, one of the Pulp Intl. cast of thousands got married Friday and so we’ve had a hard time doing the usual research due to the fact that we’ve had our hands full with twenty-six guests who flew in from overseas. When people fly so far, they expect to be entertained, and we’ve done that by getting them involved in situations very much like what you see on these posters. As a side note, we’ve noticed that our traffic is up this week, even though we haven’t had time to write anything. It’s almost like people are trying to tell us they come to the site not for our astounding insights and wry prose, but for the pretty pictures. But that can’t be true, can it? Of course not. Ciao for now.

The headlines that mattered yesteryear.

1937—Chamberlain Becomes Prime Minister
Arthur Neville Chamberlain, who is known today mainly for his signing of the Munich Agreement in 1938 which conceded the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany and was supposed to appease Adolf Hitler's imperial ambitions, becomes prime minister of Great Britain. At the time Chamberlain is the second oldest man, at age sixty-eight, to ascend to the office. Three years later he would give way to Winston Churchill.

1930—Chrysler Building Opens
In New York City, after a mere eighteen months of construction, the Chrysler Building opens to the public. At 1,046 feet, 319 meters, it is the tallest building in the world at the time, but more significantly, William Van Alen's design is a landmark in art deco that is celebrated to this day as an example of skyscraper architecture at its most elegant.
1969—Jeffrey Hunter Dies
American actor Jeffrey Hunter dies of a cerebral hemorrhage after falling down a flight of stairs and sustaining a skull fracture, a mishap precipitated by his suffering a stroke seconds earlier. Hunter played many roles, including Jesus in the 1961 film King of Kings, but is perhaps best known for portraying Captain Christopher Pike in the original Star Trek pilot episode "The Cage".
