Tajms Skver – lobby card poster 2 of 3, Yugoslavia, 1981

Posted on 28th July 2019 in "Times Square"

1981 Yugoslavian movie poster and lobby cards for TIMES SQUARE (1980)

 

 

 

Another four “lobby cards”, printed together on one poster, having been cut together and reprinted from an earlier series of lobby cards that I didn’t have when I found these. Unlike the first one, I think we’ve seen all these images previously, but, I’ll have more to say about them later. That will make sense then, I promise. Or, I hope.

 

 

Here are the individual “cards”, from when I separated them before realizing that they were never intended to be separated.

Tajms Skver – lobby card poster 1 of 3, Yugoslavia, 1981

Posted on 15th July 2019 in "Times Square"

1981 Yugoslavian lobby card sheet for TIMES SQUARE (1980), 1 of 3

I originally thought that these were uncut sheets of lobby cards intended to be separated into individual items, but after digitally doing exactly that I’ve come to the conclusion that, no, they were intended to be displayed just as they are. First, there’s not enough interior border area to cut them apart evenly, unless you trim them all the way down to the image on all four sides. Second, these sheets are exactly the same size and printed on the same poster paper as the Yugoslavian lobby poster (which itself is made up of two lobby card images), although made to be shown in landscape orientation rather than portrait. And third, shortly after I acquired these I saw a second set of them, also in poster form, so I’m guessing that these Yugoslavian lobby cards were never cut apart.

This is the first time many of these particular images have been published here, but they’re not making their first appearances as Times Square publicity items. It may not be visible in the digitized images but a close examination of the posters shows quite clearly that they’ve been cut together from another set of lobby cards, with the Tajms Skver insets pasted in on top. This is why the overall printing job leaves something to be desired — these are essentially color photocopies of items originally distributed months before… but which so far are the very last Times Square publicity materials I’ve found. I’ll start posting those in a month or two, meanwhile here are the individual images from this lobby card poster, that I’d made before I realized they weren’t meant to be displayed individually.

Tajms Skver – lobby poster, Yugoslavia, 1981

The main Yugoslavian poster used the art from the U.K. poster which was used throughout Europe. But Zeta Film also produced at least four more promotional pieces, which I believe to have been made for display in theater lobbies, based on their size and artwork.

This poster is smaller than a standard one-sheet, and reproduces photos previously used as U.K. lobby cards, top and bottom, although the reproduction leaves much to be desired.

I think it’s astounding that this much effort was put into promoting Times Square in Yugoslavia. I wonder if the film itself had been dubbed in Serbian or Bosnian.
