Mexican lobby card for the film "Guerreras de Nueva York," 1981 ("Times Square," 1980)

Mexico’s Guerreras de Nueva York got at least one lobby card, too, and here it is, with the same photo used on two items in Karen Dean’s (DefeatedandGifted’s) collection: one of three lobby cards from somewhere that used the US logo, but had EMI as the film’s distributor; and a pull-out poster from an unidentified magazine.

Warriors of New York came out in Mexico in 1981, and its poster was a collage of publicity stills and the European poster painting. To my mind, though, the most interesting thing about it, even more than the new title, is that Robin Johnson has top billing, and Tim Curry is reduced to third. I can only assume that, even more than in the rest of the world, she was the film’s major selling point in Mexico.

Clockwise from top left: an edit of the photo that ran in Film Review Vol 31 No 1, on an Italian lobby poster, and on the back of the Japanese promo flyer and in the Japanese souvenir program book (in the movie, Nicky holds the microphone in her other hand); a shot of the final concert that I think is making its first appearance here; a larger crop of a shot that appeared in the Japanese program book, and which appeared in an even larger crop on a lobby card whose provenance I’m unsure of (part of the collection of Karen Dean (DefeatedandGifted); I’ve assumed they’re Australian, but I don’t know — they use the American logo but identify the distributor as EMI, not AFD); a shot whose last appearance was in the Japanese program book, and you know what, you can find its previous appearances listed in that post; the painting by Cummins that first appeared on the UK movie poster and on most of the European posters after; and a shot that previously appeared in the “Press Folder,” as a UK lobby card, and in Joepie No. 365.

Here’s the text, along with my feeble attempt at a translation. As always, I welcome any corrections.

NO SOMOS CRIMINALES… Y SI NOS TRATAN COMO TAL USAREMOS ANTIFAZ

Música Original de la Película TIMES SQUARE (soundtrack album, Mexican edition, 1981)

This is the last version of the soundtrack album I have, and the one in the worst condition. I’ve seen one or two other copies and they were as beat up as this one is. They might have had their spines intact, where this one’s is completely worn away (which is why I have no picture of it), but that didn’t seem enough to justify buying another copy. This one also didn’t have the paper picture sleeves. I don’t know if they were issued with the Mexican edition or not.

The most interesting thing about this edition is that all the text is in Spanish.


TIMES SQUARE original soundtrack album, Mexico, 1981, gatefold interior  Text:  Producido por ROBERT STIGWOOD AND JAC0B BRACKMAN  Dirigido por ALAN MOYLE       Distribuido por EMI ROBERT STIGWOOD Presenta "TIMES SQUARE"  Protagonistas  TIM CURRY  TRINI ALVARADO  y presentando a ROBIN JOHNSON como Nicky   Con PETER COFFIELD  HERBERT BERGHOF  DAVID MARGULIES ANNA MARIA HORSFORD   Vestuario ROBERT deMORA  Escenografía STUART WURTZEL Una historia de ALAN MOYLE AND  LEANNE UNGER Guion  JACOB BRACKMAN  Edicion TOM PRIESTLEY Productores Ejecutivos KEVIN McCORMICK JOHN NICOLELLA       Productor Asociado BILL OAKES       Director de Fotografía JAMES A. CONTNER

All the other editions of the soundtrack seem to have been issued simultaneously in 1980, but this one is dated 1981. It also has a unique version of the cover art: where the US edition has the familiar face of Tim Curry as Johnny LaGuardia on Nicky’s badge, and the Canadian, French, and Peruvian editions had a blank red spot, and the UK edition had nothing at all, the Mexican version has a painted red blank badge, imitating the paint-smeared style of the rest of the cover.

The Peruvian edition had some of the song titles in Spanish on its labels, and interestingly, they’re not all identical to the titles here. For instance, “Help Me!” in Peru is “Ayúdenme,” and in Mexico it’s “Ayudame.” “Babylon’s Burning” in Peru is “El incendio de Babylon,” and in Mexico, “Babilonia se quema.” I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that Mexican Spanish and Peruvian Spanish are different, but as a speaker of neither it’s fascinating to see evidence.

SONIDO – la revista musical, No. 56, June 1981

Mexican pop music magazine featuring article on TIMES SQUARE.  Text:  NUMERO 56  $30 00  SONIDO 'a musical  ROD STEWART THREE SOULS BEATLES DANGEROUS RHYTHM  ¡¡¡LA NUEVA EXPLOSION DEL ROCK PESADO¡¡¡

 

 

 

 

The June 1981 issue of the Mexican pop music magazine Sonido contained on pages 38 and 39 an article credited to “Vicco,” but which seems to be exactly the same kind of AFD/RSO-written publicity published in English in similar magazines a year before.

The article calls the film Times Square. It wasn’t released under that title in Mexico, though, as we shall see.

The accompanying photos are the ubiquitous TS-72-8A/14, TS-66-28/9, and TS-82-30[/4], all three of which were part of the US Press Material pack.

POR: vicco

TIMES SQUARE es un drama contemporáneo,con música estelarizada por los talentos de Tim Curry, cantante y actor británico que se dio a conocer con El show de terror de Rocky; Trini Alvarado, quien tuvo un importante papel en la película de Robert Altman Rich kids, y Robin Johnson, una actriz proveniente de Brooklin, muy dinámica y que canta también en su debut cinematográfico.

La película fue filmada en diversas locaciones de Nueva York, incluyendo el infame Deuce y es resaltada por veinte canciones originales ejemplificando algo de lo mejor del rock contemporáneo interpretadas por los más importantes artistas del momento, así como por las dos estrellas de la cinta, Robin Johnson y Trini Alvarado.

Times square retrata las desventuras de dos chiquillas rebeldonas, una proveniente de un ambiente sofisticado y, la otra, producto de las calles. Juntas desde el cuarto de un hospital neurológico comienzan una serie de bizarras escapadas y su comportamiento es reportado por un disc-jockey que trabaja toda la noche en una estación de radio y que las anima a seguir con sus trucos y logra convertirlas en celebridades menores de los medios. Ellas pasan sobre todas las autoridades llegando al climax en una escena sobre la marquesina del teatro Times Square con cientos de seguidores rindiendo su tributo.

Dicha cinta es una presentación de Robert Stigwood y fue producida por Stigwood y Jacob Brackman, dirigida por Alan Moyle, basada en una historia de Moyle y Leanne Unger. Kevin McCormick y John Nicollela son los productores ejecutivos y Bill Oakes es productor asociado.

LA MUSICA
En un momento en que la música de películas se encuentra entre los discos más populares y cuando ha sido entendida como un vehículo muy importante para la aceptación de una cinta, aparece un nuevo álbum doble en discos RSO con la música de la película Times square, uno de los más excitantes que han sido lanzados, pues no sólo captura el espíritu de la película, sino que es además una antología única de canciones interpretadas por los mejores artistas de rock del momento, tanto de Inglaterra como de Estados Unidos, incluyendo a Suzi Qautro, The Pretenders, Roxy Music, Gary Numan, The Talking Heads, Joe Jackson, The Patti Smith Group, XTC, The Cure, Lou Reed,The Ramones, The Ruts, David Johansen y muchos otros. ¡Es un álbum espectacular!

BY: vicco

TIMES SQUARE is a contemporary drama, with music, starring the talents of Tim Curry, singer and British actor who became known in The Rocky Horror Picture Show; Trini Alvarado, who had an important role in Robert Altman’s movie Rich Kids, and Robin Johnson, an actress from Brooklyn, very dynamic and who also sings in her film début.

The movie was filmed in diverse locations of New York, including the infamous Deuce, and it is highlighted by twenty original songs exemplifying some of the best contemporary rock performed by today’s most important artists, as well as by both stars of the film, Robin Johnson and Trini Alvarado.

Times Square portrays the misfortunes of two little girl rebels, one from a sophisticated environment and, the other one, a product of the streets. Together from the room of a neurological hospital they begin a series of bizarre escapades and their behavior is reported by a disc-jockey who works the overnight on a radio station and who encourages them to continue with their tricks and manages to turn them into minor media celebrities. They get past all the authorities, arriving at the climax in a scene on the marquee of the Times Square theatre with hundreds of followers paying tribute.

This film is a Robert Stigwood presentation and it was produced by Stigwood and Jacob Brackman, directed by Alan Moyle, based on a story by Moyle and Leanne Unger. Kevin McCormick and John Nicollela are the executive producers and Bill Oakes is the associate producer.

THE MUSIC

At a time when movie soundtracks are among the most popular records and when they have been understood as a very important vehicle for the acceptance of a film, a new double album appears on RSO Records with the music of the movie Times Square, one of the most exciting to be released, since it not only captures the spirit of the movie, but it is also a unique collection of songs performed by today’s greatest rock artists, from both England and the United States, including Suzi Qautro, The Pretenders, Roxy Music, Gary Numan, The Talking Heads, Joe Jackson, The Patti Smith Group, XTC, The Cure, Lou Reed, The Ramones, The Ruts, David Johansen and many others. It is a spectacular album!
