Lisa Dombrowski on Samuel Fuller

Film Professor Lisa Dombrowski is in the Hartford Courant for her new book on film noir great Samuel Fuller, “If You Die, I’ll Kill You!”, talking about how her first viewing of Fuller’s “Shock Corridor” had her curled up in a ball. The Courant noticed something a little more obvious:

Dombrowski… has embraced the Fuller aesthetic in another way, too. Her book-jacket photo raised eyebrows when she submitted it to WesPress. Dombrowski looks less like an academic at an elite university than a sexy bombshell, with a tight, low-cut blouse, dangly earrings and a challenging gaze.

“I wanted to go with something that looked different. This book has a rather outrageous title,” she says. “I couldn’t be sitting on a chintz sofa with a cat on my lap. I wanted a noirish, femme-fatale look, like someone out of Fuller.”

    oh come on, Marianna. I’ve taken a class with her and can judge her intelligence and prettiness for myself, but that picture definitely shows her in a different way than I was ever used to. I think we’d do the same thing if Roth had a shirtless photoshoot
