Welcome to an electronic preview of...
Sensational Mainstream Spankabilia!!
A compilation of captivating cuts from Eugene Bernard's
"Collectors' Corner" columns, originally appearing in out-of-date issues
of Strictly Speaking Spanking! Featuring fantastic articles focusing on
current and vintage mainstream spanking references from movies, television, stage, books,
comics, newspapers, advertisements and more!
Mandrake, the brainchild of Lee Falk
and artist Phil Davis while both were employed at a St. Louis advertising firm, first
appeared as a daily strip on June 11, 1934 and then as a Sunday page in February 1935.
From the outset, Mandrake was a uniquely
creative strip. In his coat-and-tails suit, opera hat, and black and red cape, Mandrake
was as elegant as he was gifted at magic, hypnotism, illusion and, of course, chancing
upon outlandish, exotic adventures that brought beautiful women and dastardly villains
into and out of the strip.
In typical hero fashion, Mandrake uses only
his superior faculties of intelligence, resourcefulness, and courage to triumph over his
enemies- including but not limited to masters of black magic who feel before Mandrake's
white magic, mad potentates, spies, invaders from outer space and, best of all, those
occasional naughty ladies in need of his firm, guiding hand!

Bravo Mandrake! Bravo Lee & Phil!! There IS only one sure-fire way to
shrink the britches of any spoiled brat, be she Countess, that cute but sassy working
stiff Miss, or any other big bad girl in between! And that, of course, takes enough heat
in the seat to melt away any & all traces of nose in the air attitude... Or, for that
matter, even brattier antics such as those depicted below in the even more successful
second strip from these 2 old-fashioned gents, The Phantom. In this one, our hero
has been waylaid by 2 bratty babes & shows his displeasure by... Well, you'll see...

"It Happened Last
Wilson's nationally syndicated gossip column,
October 3, 1955
Anything for journalism - I always say. Over my knees, I belted her
with my bare hand. She let out a lot of noise as she lay there, face-down.
"My powerful blows must have stung," I said, firmly
"No, Your knees are bony and I'm ticklish," she
This remarkable spanking demonstration was undertaken because
Corinne'd been telling me she married actor John Bromfield because of his tendency to be a
"Women need a good spanking from time to time,"
she'd contended. "I'm a difficult person to live with and I don't know how he does
"Johnny has spanked me a few times. He's always
masterful in his spanking and I behave better after."
I was surprised that she admitted it--and seemed to like
it--for my experience at spanking wives has been highly unsatisfactory... Miss Cavet said
she would show me how to spank my wife effectively and I told her to go ahead.
We were in the suite shared by Corinne and her husband. He
was out at a football game.
"When your wife starts to yell, you don't want the
neighbors to hear, do you? she asked.
"Than you should be kissing her while you're spanking
her, and that will keep her from yelling. Here do you want me to show you how to kiss her?
"I...uh...don't think we need to go that far," I
"Oh you're the shy type," said Miss Calvet.
But the French bon-bon then returned to the principles of
successful wife spanking.
"When John spanks me," she related, "he comes
over and picks me up. That's the correct way. Try and fight when somebody picks you up and
gets your feet off the ground. You can't do it. Then I feel how strong he is and I give
Corinne said she's had long experience at being spanked.
In Paris, at 14, she decided to get "revenge" on
all men because her first boy friend had told her, "Don't take it too
seriously," and said good-bye.
She went around breaking hearts. One night invited to a
bridge game, she came into a room filled with seven of her beaux who were angry at her for
leading each one of them on.
"One of them grabbed me and spanked me, and the others
followed. I was riding a bicycle in those days. Believe me, for the next week, I wouldn't
sit down on the bicycle, I would stand on the pedals."
Her husband was next to paddle her.
Miss Calvet is quite frank in saying that she trapped him -
"Do you think any man ever gets married without a woman who traps him?" After
she found out he was a type she couldn't fool.
When she finished the lecture, Miss Calvet said I could come
up and spank her any time.
"Spank me in person, but not in your column."

My, how times have changed! Imagine the outraged reaction
today if a woman sat down... I'm almost surprised Ms. Calvet, a "B list"
actress, could! Must NOT have been naughty around hubby for a few days!!... for a
syndicated, national columnist and dared to confess to such a rich spanking past &
spousal spanking present? And then to pose for photo over Earl's lap & invite him up
to "spank her anytime?" My, my, my... Those WERE the good, old-fashioned
days!! Now where is that time machine? - EB
The poster above, just one of a gamut of gimmicks spotlighting spousal
spanking, adorned theaters and enticed viewers to come in and watch lovely Joan Leslie get
what she deserved from hubby Robert Hutton in "Janie Gets Married".
A great, graphic rich
article on one of the most fascinating (& frustratingly fraudulent!) periods in the
history of Hollywood movie promotion...
Golden Age of Publicity Paddlings!
banners in New York's famous Times Square? Lobby cards in & posters outside of all the
theaters? Posed publicity stills of tinseltown's biggest female stars being OTK spanked by
their leading men passed out months before a film's premier? Even flyers & audience
participation cards posing questions about warming the little woman's bottom?
the above might seem an outrageous enough way to promote a moving picture. But how much
more outrageous would it be if there wasn't so much as a spanking threat, let alone the
over-the-knee scene in the film?
Unbelievable? How about true?
