Half-naked dames, hard-muscled heroes, and the promise of lurid thrills drew many a curious reader to the cheaply printed pulp magazines of the 1920s through '50s. The allure began with the outrageous suggestive images painted on the covers, revisited by this entertaining documentary that surveys decades of pulp fiction cover art and interviews prominent artists from the era. 57 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
