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

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.

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

Times Square Hits US Cable TV, October 1981

  A year after its brief run in theaters, Times Square made it to HBO, and I watched it every single time it ran. This was before my family had a VCR, but my dad had access to a Sony Porta-Pak open-reel video recorder, and I recorded the movie across

Guerreras de Nueva York (Times Square lobby card, Mexico, 1981)

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

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

        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

Typically, shortly before my last post was published (but weeks after I’d initially written it), five more stills from the UK series turned up. Two were duplicates of numbers 20 and 29, but the others were new to me. They follow the series’ general conventions of being black and white

Times Square 8 x 10″ publicity stills from this series continue to turn up. The first ones I found, I didn’t realize where they had come from, but the UK Press Kit’s caption sheet that matched up with some of the numbers on the photos solved the mystery. Their distinguishing

Blast from the Past

I got this photo at the same time as the Nicky hair and make up test and the preparing-to-shoot-the-excised-scene-of-the-girls-looking-for-Nicky’s-father. Somehow, in my excitement over those two true behind-the-scenes photographs, since there are so very few of those, I lost track of this one. I’d digitized it at the same time,

Times Square Program Book, Japan, June 1981, pages 12-13 (post 5 of 5)

The center two pages of the Japanese souvenir book feature, alongside a somewhat out of place Yankees logo, three beautifully reproduced photos. The first, of Pammy and Nicky atop the Times Square Theater marquee, isn’t a frame from the film, and I haven’t yet found it as a publicity still,
