UK Publicity Still #24


“You’re a big man, hit me again!” I’m starting to think that there are two separate sets of UK black-and-white publicity stills, one with borders, one without. You know, just to make things more confusing. Thankfully, so far at least there isn’t another one labeled “24” but not full-bleed. On

WTF 2023


Sometime back in late Spring, Google changed the way they serve images from their cloud service. Since I’ve moved most of the images here to Google’s servers to conserve space, I had to go along with it. It required the updating of a number of things at the local server

U.K. Publicity Still #… uh…


The black and white 8 x 10 stills released in England tend to have a lot of things in common, but the attributes are not absolute… Most of them, but not all, are full-bleed, with no borders. Many of them, but not all, have a caption pasted to their backs.

      Kinema Junpo (Kinejun, Motion Picture Times) devoted three pages to a promotional Times Square article in its June 15, 1981 issue, for the film’s Japanese opening on June 21. The text would appear to be the usual brief synopsis, with a list of some of the cast

Times Square chirashi, Japan, 1981 (2nd version)


Was it the Japanese distributor being one of those who went all-in on promoting Times Square, or was it par for the course in Japan for a movie like Times Square to get not one but two of these 2-sided handbills? Either way, here is a second chirashi. The first

“Damn Dog” 12-inch single


You too might have had perhaps Robin’s only solo release, if you were a DJ… in 1981… in Belgium. The mind boggles at the series of meetings that must have occurred to result in the decision that this was a good idea. A 12-inch single of “Damn Dog”… but not

AHEAD OF OF TIMES “Times Square" is a double album that will add a bit of everything to any record collection. The album is the sound track of the movie of the same name, and if the track listing is anything to go by then the film must be dynamite too. To list all the bands contributing to. the album would probably take up the whole Hot Gossip page, but to give you a taste of what’s in store, here’s just some of the top names included: the Pretenders, Roxy Music, Gary Numan, Joe Jackson, XTC, Suzi Quatro and a host of others. Whetted your appetite? Then get hold of a copy now — it’s on the. RSO label. [photo caption] Nicky, one of the main characters from the movie.

UK publicity still #22


  Just what it says on the tin. This is the same basic image as would later be published in the Thai magazine Filmstar Vol. 1 No. 3 in August 1981, and used as a publicity still in Germany in 1982. The German version has a tiny number 22 inserted

    Two months before Times Square opened in Spain, the film magazine Fotogramas ran the same kind of promotional article we’ve seen in Mexico, Thailand, and Germany. The article contains nothing new, but four of the six stills from the film never appeared anywhere else as far as I
