Hi Moira, I thought this might be worth mentioning for your posts on Reading Books in Hollywood. There is a scene in The Set-Up, where one of the boxers (I don't think it is Robert Ryan) is reading a pulp magazine in the change-room.

If you know of any other movies where people are reading pulp magazines, let me know.
