I wanted to tag this cover with “Helpless Women” but she doesn’t actually look that helpless. She looks more like Black Widow getting ready to kick that guys ass just as soon as he finishes gloating about the details of his evil plans.

She Consorted With Peasants — And Married A Prince

“Hungarian gypsies, gay, irresponsible, thieving, dancing, sensuous, and sadistic, move from camp to camp under the brutal leadership of Gabor Zoltan. But hanging over this giant’s head is an ancient threat. And against him is the real queen of the tribe and her half-white daughter, the passionate Paprika. …One tragedy follows swift on the heels of another. Every moment is dramatic, and the temperature and tempo are such that the readers will require ice packs and other consoling and cooling agents before the grand climax sweeps them through unsanguined fields to the ultimate.” – Los Angeles Times review, March 17, 1935
