Paperback 478: College Confidential / Irving Shulman (Gold Medal s1005)

Paperback 478: Gold Medal s1005 (PBO, 1960)

Title: College Confidential
Author: Irving Shulman
Cover artist: [movie still]

Yours for: $15


Best things about this cover:
  • If this is what prayer meetings are really like, sign me the hell up.
  • "This big, I swear!" "Ha ha ha ha, good one, Mamie"
  • If there's anyone I'd trust to bring me the hot details of a college sex scandal, it's some guy named "Irving."


Best things about this back cover:
  • And by "STUDY," we mean "MASTURBATE TO"
  • One requirement of 1950s headshots was that the actor be leaning heavily to one side, looking either bored (exhibit A) or hopped up (exhibit B). 
  • Steve Allen has this look like "I know, I can't believe I'm in this film either."

Page 123~
"The way we got it," Bob scowled, because he had not expected this frank admission, "you had a lot of students up here for a drunken brawl and—" he hooked both thumbs into his heavy gun belt—"dirty movies."
At this point, the sexy porn music starts playing and the gun belt comes *off!" P.S. "Frank!"

That is indeed Conway Twitty. See According to the credits Walter Winchell played himself.
