White Zombie '32 Lobby Card Delight

Really neat lobby as Bela glares at lead actress Madge Bellamy (In an incredibly wooden performance) stares ahead. I love the glance given by the annoyed butler in the background.

Popeye in COLOR

In 1943, Paramount Studios was happy to announce that Popeye was now in Color. Of course the Spinach Eater had appeared in three 20 min. Technicolor masterpieces prior to this "Event". Here is a stock one sheet with everyone's favorite Bully Beater Upper.

Honky Tonk Girl (1937)

This skid-row-sexploitation yarn finds a rural pimp named Slavik, who has girls up and down the highway. The enterprising Slavik sets his sights on the 'Wagon Wheel Saloon and Cabins', operated by the philosophically moralizing Pop and his daughter Barbara, and plots to convert it into a brothel.
The original title of this little opus was Hitchhike to Hell!
