Keeler in Italian

In 1952, Casini published translations of three Keeler novels in its weekly "yellow" series. Like some of the Dutch Keelers, these paperbacks used Hollywood stills as illustrations. According to surviving documents, Keeler was paid $200 per title. My images here are reconstructions based on black-and-white photocopies plus poor color images. Better versions are welcome!


Il carnefice può aspettare (Casini, 1952): The title literally means "The Killer Can Wait"; the original title was The Peacock Fan.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poker di re (Casini, 1952): a translation of The Fourth King.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notti a Sing Sing (Casini, 1952): Sing Sing Nights was one of Keeler's most-translated works.
