Bond and the Pulps
Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang -
Bond and Pulps by David Morefield
These characters were the stars of the "pulps," and in a way they were the spiritual forefathers of James Bond. Though separated from the works of Ian Fleming by time, cultures and philosophy, even a casual examination of the pulps reveals some remarkable parallels to the Bond mythos.


Cliffhanger Corner
The action/adventure film first became popular with weekly Saturday serials, running in installments that often had 'cliff-hanging' endings to entice viewers to return for the next show. Other action-adventure heros of B-picture adventure films included Kane Richmond (as the "Spy Smasher," "The Shadow," and a star in the "Cliffhanger Serials" and the "Rin-Tin-Tin" adventure serial), Tom Tyler (as "Captain Marvel" with countless episodes, and "The Phantom of the West"), and Don "Red" Barry (as "Red Ryder"). See Spy Smasher in the flaming tunnel, an animated GIF from Spy Smasher.

Mystery Sites


An online network for everything mystery, with mystery puzzles and information about books, TV, and movies. The Place for Everything Mystery


Mystery Guide
The espionage novel has a major conundrum at its heart: spooks are supposed to keep secrets, not blab them. Furthermore, until WWII the prevailing "gentlemen do not read each other's mail" ethos prevented literary glamor from attaching to espionage. By now, of course, the spy's lonely life has become a metaphor for every type of existential piety -- but until the mid-20th century, spooks were considered seedy, shady stool-pigeons, liars, and traitors.

Film Noir
Film Noir (literally 'black film or cinema', from French film critics who noticed the trend of how dark and black the looks and themes were of many American crime and detective films released in France following the war) is a style of American films that evolved in the 1940s, and lasted in a classic period until about 1960.

No Place for a Woman: The Family in Film Noir and Other Essays is a collection of essays on classic film noir, with emphasis on gender roles -- particularly the role of women and the male detective/hero -- and what the films' treatment of these roles says about American culture's attitude toward the family during the 1940s and '50s.


Film History Sites


Crime and Gangster Films
Crime and Gangster Films are developed around the sinister actions of criminals or gangsters, particularly bankrobbers, underworld figures, or ruthless hoodlums who operate outside the law, stealing and murdering their way through life. Criminal and gangster films are often categorized as film noir or detective-mystery films - because of underlying similarities between these cinematic forms.

Thriller and Suspense Films
As already noted, many of Alfred Hitchcock's suspense/thriller films, especially during his early years, are espionage/spy subgenre films.


Action Films
Beginning in the 60s (after restrictions on violence and sex were lifted somewhat), the slick, escapist Bond pictures appealed to large audiences with their exotic, travelogue locales, tongue-in-cheek dialogue, nifty gadgets, fast-action suspense and audacious stunts, and gorgeous sexy women.

Espionage Research Sources


History is a Hoot We at History is a Hoot, Inc. believe that history is the most fascinating and entertaining subject in the world. Why? Because everyone and everything has a history—individuals, nations, companies, organizations, communities, and, yes, even spies.Espionage, counterespionage, intelligence gathering, counterintelligence activities, surveillance, countersurveillance and just plain spying are not products of recent times and events. From the beginning of the American republic, espionage, in all its forms, has been major component of business, governmental, diplomatic, and military affairs.
