Explore Whity 1971, 1971 Film and more!

Marvel's first attempt to put Conan in magazine form in 1971! He's not alone: Other features include "Ka-Zar" and "Man-Thing" with post-dot-com Amazons and a black guy who gives whitey the shaft! That "Rated M" is a joke around the time of movie ratings' infancy, but it does demonstrate that this mag doesn't play by Code comics rules! (Today, comics have movie-like ratings. Thanks a lot, Bryan Singer and Sam Raimi!)

Beware of a Holy Whore -- "In Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s brazen depiction of the alternating currents of lethargy and mayhem inherent in moviemaking, a film crew—played by, and not so loosely based on, his own frequent collaborators—deals with an aloof star, an abusive director, and a financially troubled production. Inspired by the hellish process of making Whity earlier the same year, this is a vicious look at behind-the-scenes dysfunction."

Brother John is a 1971 drama film about an enigmatic African-American man who returns to his Alabama hometown every time one of his loved ones is about to die.

White common at the time, is it weird that whitey Burt Lancaster plays "Valdez"? Great revenge movie either way (and book, for that matter).
