Three more German lobby cards.

 

The shot of Johnny at the mic was previously a British lobby card, and had been published in Movie 81 No. 2 in February 1981. It would appear to have been taken at the same time as the shot that appeared in the center of the gatefold of the soundtrack album (except in the UK), and the earliest published photo of Tim Curry from Times Square (in The Aquarian, April 23, 1980), which was also #4 of the seemingly unending series of UK black and white publicity stills.

It’s also the card that was missing from the second set of these cards I found, replaced by a card not in the first set.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This shot of the girls walking west along 42nd Street towards Times Square, with 6th Avenue behind them, was used in 1981 as a British lobby card. It also appeared in Belgium’s Joepie No. 365, on the Japanese movie poster (Pammy’s face only), and in the first promotional piece sent out by RSO.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a cropped version of this photo of Nicky and Pammy entering the Pier 56 hideout previously appeared in the Japanese souvenir program book.

Germany may have gotten Times Square last, but they got a set of 15 lobby cards to promote it with. At least, 15 that I’ve found, over several years, in two batches of 14 that each had one different card in them. While 15 sounds like a nice round number, I wouldn’t be surprised if more turn up sometime.

Here are the first three:


 

 

 

They’re not actually numbered, so I’ve put them in an order that makes sense to me.

These three distinguish themselves by all being a rarity in Times Square publicity: a photo of the actor, on set and in costume, looking directly into the camera. The first is familiar, the photo by Yoram Kahana that was taken at the same time as the shot which became the image on the soundtrack album cover and the North American movie poster, and which was at some point distributed as a slide (one of which is owned by DefeatedandGifted), and printed in Movie 81 No 2, as an inset on the Japanese movie poster, and in Filmstar Vol. 1 No. 6.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The shot of Trini made its only previous appearance, as far as I know, on a British lobby card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But this shot of Tim Curry as Johnny, lounging in the WJAD control room, only ever appeared on this card.

Times Square opened in West Germany on May 21, 1982. The poster reproduced the painting by Cummins that had graced the other European posters, although with a different pair of photos than the British, Spanish, and Yugoslavian posters, and the addition of a paragraph of ad copy that seems to take its cue from the Belgian poster.
