The adaptations of seven of the pulps' best writers - Ernest Haycox, Luke Short, Frank Gruber, Norman A Fox, Louis L'Amour, Marvin H. Albert, and Clair Huffaker - are analyzed here. Insightful and humorous, this work looks at how the pulp novels and the movie adaptations reflected the times in which they were produced. I examines the cliches that became a part of the story. A critical examination of how the books were interpreted by filmmakers is included, along with commentary on the actors and directors who put the pulps on screen.
