  • Times Square UK Lobby Cards, 1st Set (post 3 of 4)

    FacebookTwitterTumblrRedditPinterestGoogleEmail Cards 9 through 12 from what I believe to be the first of two sets of Times Square lobby cards distributed in the UK in late 1980 or early 1981:     David Pearl watching his daughter practice dance moves at the strip club was reproduced on the first Yugoslavian lobby card poster.  …

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

    FacebookTwitterTumblrRedditPinterestGoogleEmail 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.

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 8×10″s with no border, a…

  • Times Square Press Material folder (post 4 of 5)

    FacebookTwitterTumblrRedditPinterestGoogleEmail   On the left is the same photo as this one, cropped differently and of course without the autograph. On the right is the photo that may be the one used the most to promote the film. We’ll have a better idea about that once I’m done with all this stuff. Until just now,…
