Ephemera, Featured Posts
In addition to their primary purpose in drumming up business for their company, airline travel posters of course wanted to get you in the mood to visit places all over the world. And without the benefit of a TV commercial, travel posters had to work overtime to help you paint a picture of exotic locales in your mind. Here are 20 such vintage travel posters that did their job exceptionally well, most dating from the 1950s and '60s. And if I may be allowed a shameless plug -- which I am -- I should tell you that some of these images are available as beautiful custom apparel and other products on my Zazzle shop. Why not go there now? Just click on The Hangar for all airline-related goods.

It's time for the fourth chapter in the 1943 Batman serial, "Slaves of the Rising Sun"! Kind of hard to mistake the implication in that title I suppose. But just in case you did, a slew of anti-Japanese epithets should clue you in. So we pick up from the end of chapter 3, where Batman and Robin engage in a spirited round of fisticuffs in order to thwart Dr. Daka's plan to blow up a supply train -- which I guess was a vital cog in American's war effort against Japan? -- and retrieve his lost radium gun. Aside from the opening action sequence, the absolute best part of "Slaves of the Rising Sun" is hearing Lewis Wilson's atrocious Indian accent. If you ever wondered what it would sound like if Boston was in the middle of India, you need to watch this. Related articles Satu...
