Crime magazine gives readers the gifts of death and mayhem.
Produced by the J.B. Publishing Corp. of New York City, Reward was a true crime magazine, another imprint designed to slake the American public's thirst for death and mayhem. Inside this May 1954 issue the editors offer up mafia hits, Hollywood suicides, domestic murder, plus some cheesecake to soothe readers' frazzled nerves, and more. The cover features a posed photo of actress Lili Dawn, who was starring at the time in a film noir called Violated. It turned out to be her only film. In fact, it turned out to be the only film ever acted in by top billed co-star William Holland, as well as supporting cast members Vicki Carlson, Fred Lambert, William Mishkin, and Jason Niles. It must have been some kind of spectacularly bad movie to cut short all those careers, but we haven't watched it. It's available for the moment on YouTube, though, and we may just take a gander later. Because Reward is a pocket sized magazine the page scans are easily readable, so rather than comment further we'll let you have a look yourself.

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.
