GOOD LOOKING GLASS
Hey, since you're back there, tell me something. Do I look as amazing to you as I do to me?


We've arrived at what would be month five of the 1972 Reiko Ike Weekly Playboy calendar, but we already used that image a while back, so we're offering a substitute. Above, Reiko climbs atop her vanity to get visual confirmation of her own unusual beauty. We'd spend a lot of time in front of the mirror too, if we were her, but we'd be touching ourselves in every possible way. This shot came from a 1974 issue of Heibon Punch and was accompanied by other interesting photos we'll probably share down the line. We will return to your regularly scheduled calendar next month.

LUXURY RIDE
Leather seats. Power steering. Custom hood ornament. This car comes absolutely loaded.


Hitomi Kozue's reaction to this Rolls Royce Silver Cloud III is a bit over the top, but we guess she's a real car lover, and flexible too. These photos came from a 1974 issue of Heibon Punch, weird color balance and all. When Kozue wasn't moonlighting as a human hood ornament she starred in such films as Jitsuroku onna kanbetsusho: sei-jigoku, aka True Story of a Woman Condemned: Sex Hell, and Shiroi mesuneko: mahiru no ecstasy, aka White Female Cat: Ecstasy at High Noon. In her normal state—as opposed to getting freaky on a Rolls—she seems to us too elegant for raunchy softcore roman porno flicks, but that's where she made her reputation, appearing in twenty-eight in four years before moving on to parts unknown. We have a lot of material on her in the site, but if you need to be pointed to some nice entries, check here, here, here, here, and here. And believe us, there will be more coming.

HOLIDAY DISPLAY
Oh the weather outside is frightful...


And we couldn't go with just one femme fatale. We have so many scanned at this point we may never get to them all. So let's double up. Here's a beautiful shot of Natsuko Yashiro, who appeared in such fare as Inzetsu ama: Uzuku, Shikijô ama midare tsubo, aka Lusty Ama: Stirred-Up Pot, Onna keimusho, aka Women's Prison, Okasu!, Hirusagari no onna: chohatsu! aka Woman of the Afternoon: Incite!, and about twenty other flicks. For someone with such an extensive filmography, we don't get the impression she was ever a top star, but we could wrong about that. This dates from 1974.

HATS ENTERTAINMENT
Loren is head and shoulders above the rest.


Our ongoing quest for unusual Japanese material continues today with this cool page featuring Sophia Loren in a photo feature about hats. It's from the magazine Heibon Punch and appeared in issue 10, published in 1964. You know what she needs under that hat? An iridescent wig

HITOMI WITH HER BEST SHOTS
This is really fun. What should we do to entertain ourselves once we run out of film?


We said we'd post the rest of our scans of Japanese actress Hitomi Kozue from that 1974 issue of Heibon Punch and we're finally getting around to it today. As you can see, she did not burn down the cabin, but she's definitely generating a dangerous amount of heat. We'll have more from Kozue down the line.

DOUBLE POSITIVE
Reiko Ike leaves everyone's tongues tied in nots.


Yes, we just shared a rare calendar page of pinku legend Reiko Ike, but what are you gonna do when she stars in photos like this one? We can't not post it. That's a double negative, we know, but some thoughts can only be expressed that way. We can't not not share this photo, because that would be immoral. Is that even right? Not the immoral part. The not part. If you decide you're not not not not going to do something, that means you're going to do it, right? Or maybe you can only successfully use a single double negative, and all the extra nots can only be used as emphasis rather than meaning, like saying you're never never never never going to do something, in which case that would mean you're not going to do it. Tricky questions. We could avoid them by using a single positive, but that would lack the exactness of the double negative. We will post it lacks the punch of we can't not post it. The meaning is similar, but the double negative removes our control over the decision, which is useful when the Pulp Intl. girlfriends look at the site. Baby, we couldn't not post it. So the double negative is better than the single positive and there's no such thing as a double positive. Well, maybe that's not strictly true. For instance, we're double positive about posting this photo. And gramatically speaking, people do say yes yes under certain circumstances, but those circumstances shouldn't occur while looking at naked photos on a computer. If that happens, we can only suggest that it's time to ask someone on a date.

SUPERMASSIVE BACK HOLE
My dressmaker ran out of fabric. Considering all the places she could have left a hole, I think she made the right choice.

Above is a rather impressive photo of Japanese actress and singer Akiko Nakamura that appeared in the magazine Heibon Punch today in 1974. Her dress was, we suspect, inspired by the infamous Vikki Dougan, a U.S. actress who in the 1950s made a splash doing crack in public. As a fashion statement this is about as bold as it gets.

PINK VELVET
Italy shows its appreciation for Lindberg's mouth (and the rest of her too).


Above is a poster for Bocca di velluto, which you may know better as the Christina Lindberg film Anita: Swedish Nymphet, or possibly just Anita. In Italian Bocca di velluto means “velvet mouth,” and what can you say about that as a re-title for the Italian market except, you know, it's Italy. Lindberg's lovely mouth plays no role beyond framing dialogue, but we bet busloads of Italians didn't find that out until after they ponied up for the film. We don't have an Italian release date, but Anita had its world premiere in Sweden today in 1973. We already talked about the film in detail, so if you wanna know, go. And below, as a bonus, we have a promo photo of Lindberg. It comes from an unlikely source—a 1973 issue of the Japanese magazine Heibon Punch.

MIMI-OGRAPHY
The team wouldn't be nearly as much fun without her.

This 1974 shot from Heibon Punch shows Japanese AV model, singer, actress, and wrestler Mimi Hagiwara. That's right—she's a wrestler. Apparently Mimi plays basketball too, since her shirt says “Nice Sports Basketball.” Shirts against skins, anyone?

HARUMI SERVICE
Tajima joins the white panty club.

This is the last of our Heibon Punch calendar pages. Sad, we know—these things have provided a lot of visual pleasure, but we'll acquire more at some point. The above foldout features actress Harumi Tajima, who appeared in Kyôfu joshi kôkô: Animal dôkyôsei, aka Terrifying Girls' High School: Animal Courage, and in Seijû gakuen, aka School of the Holy Beast, which we talked about here. This shot, as you can see from the date at bottom left, is from 1974, and she sports the same garb worn last month by Yumiko Tatsuno. While the look is similar, the photographer is different. This shot was made by Keinosuke Hashimoto. Wanna see the other Heibon Punch calendar pages? Just click here and scroll down.

1924—Leopold and Loeb Murder Bobby Franks
Two wealthy University of Chicago students named Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold, Jr. murder 14-year-old Bobby Franks, motivated by no other reason than to prove their intellectual superiority by committing a perfect crime. But the duo are caught and sentenced to life in prison. Their crime becomes known as a "thrill killing", and their story later inspires various works of art, including the 1929 play Rope by Patrick Hamilton, and Alfred Hitchcock's 1948 film of the same name.

1916—Rockwell's First Post Cover Appears
The Saturday Evening Post publishes Norman Rockwell's painting "Boy with Baby Carriage", marking the first time his work appears on the cover of that magazine. Rockwell would go to paint many covers for the Post, becoming indelibly linked with the publication. During his long career Rockwell would eventually paint more than four thousand pieces, the vast majority of which are not on public display due to private ownership and destruction by fire.

1962—Marilyn Monroe Sings to John F. Kennedy
A birthday salute to U.S. President John F. Kennedy takes place at Madison Square Garden, in New York City. The highlight is Marilyn Monroe's breathy rendition of "Happy Birthday," which does more to fuel speculation that the two were sexually involved than any actual evidence.
