The Lonely Man, a book by Robert Turner, was made into a movie starring Jack Palance (as the mean old gunslinger Pa,) and Anthony Perkins (pre-"Psycho," playing the angry son.) It's apparently a not-half-bad movie, thanks to Palance's work.

This copy of the book is a publication put out as a tie-in to the movie, although it's marketed in absolutely hilarous pulp fiction manner -- "Ada was young, beautiful, fiery, and two men hungered for her lips." The are various still shots from the movie reproduced throughout this book, and the captions are hysterical. One photo of Ada calls her "a prairie-bred hellcat who tempts both father and son."

The cover art is likewise pulpish, with a very unflattering depiction of the back of Jack Palance's jeans, as he appears to be wearing Depends underneath them. And if one is to believe the depiction of that hellcat Ada, there were some very good bullet bras being manufactured in the old west days.

Oh well, books like this are too much fun. I've had a riot writing this description and you can imagine the hoots you'll get from this book!

BOOK CONDITION

The cover of this Avon Press publication has some wear around the spine at at the tips, but is in good shape. The interior is unmarked and clean. The main flaw is that while all the pages are in the book, pages 81 through 128 are detached neatly from the spine. A typical pulp fiction book flaw, as they weren't made to last. The book is 6.25 x 4.25 inches in size.
