TIMES SQUARE movie poster, Yugolslavia, 1981 Text: Rȇžija: ALAN MOYLE TIM CURRY TRINI ALVARADO ROBIN JOHNSON AMERIČKI FILM kolor TAJMS SKVER TIMES SQUARE ZETA FILM ZF BUDVA EMI [Direction: ALAN MOYLE TIM CURRY TRINI ALVARADO ROBIN JOHNSON AMERICAN FILM color TAJMS SKVER TIMES SQUARE ZETA FILM ZF BUDVA EMI]

 

Budva is in what is now Montenegro, and in 1981 Zeta Film imported Times Square for the Yugoslavian film market. I don’t know when it opened or how well it did, or if it was subtitled in Serbian. All I know about it is that there was this poster, which replicates the UK poster. It’s a reproduction of the Cummins painting, losing a lot of detail and the artist’s signature, but at least it’s not a redrawing of it like the Belgian poster seems to have been. This was definitely a legitimate release. I have my doubts abut Belgium.

Another Italian Times Square Lobby Poster

Two images from the film TIMES SQUARE (1980); ((1) Robin Johnson (2) Tim Curry and Trini Alvarado) with accompanying text:  TIMES SQUARE ROBERT STIGWOOD presenta "TIMES SQUARE"con TIM CURRY • TRINI ALVARADO  e per la prima volta sullo schermo ROBIN JOHNSON con PETER COFFIELD • HERBERT BERGHOF • DAVID MARGULIES  ANNA MARIA HORSFORD  produttori esecutivi KEVIN McCORMICK e JOHN NICOLELLA  diretto da ALAN MOYLE  prodotto da ROBERT STIGWOOD e JACOB BRACKMAN  sceneggiatura di JACOB BRACKMAN  soggetto di ALAN MOYLE e LEANNE UNGER EMI  produttore associato BILL OAKES  una produzione EMI-ITC  Technicolor • STEREOFUTURSOUND  IDIF

This is exactly what the post title says: a second lobby poster from Italy. There may be more, but so far I’ve only come across two.

The text is exactly the same as the other one and the Italian movie poster. Robin as Nicky is on the left, in a photo taken during the shooting of the final sequence, which is I believe making its first published appearance on this poster. We’ll be seeing it a few more times; it’s possible those future items actually came out before this, but they’re all from the spring or summer of 1981.

And on the right, we see an adult man giving vodka to a thirteen-year-old-girl, but it’s okay: he’s not interested in her, he wants to know about her sixteen-year-old roommate. Um… yeah. Sure, there’s really both more and less going on in that scene than that implies, but, I think you’d have a pretty hard time getting that from script to screen nowadays.
