Film Review Vol. 31 No. 2, February 1981


Times Square probably hadn’t had its January 15th opening yet when the February issue of Film Review came out. Unlike the article in the previous month’s issue, this isn’t a review at all, but a promotional summary of the film, with the exception of the backhanded compliment that most of

Robin and Trini “Bandphotos”, UK 1981


More recently-turned-up Times Square publicity from England. Exactly how these fit in with the rest of it, I’m not sure. I’m guessing they were relatively early UK publicity, since the photos still have the American numbers on them. Perhaps before their own publicity machine got going, EMI contracted with Alan

15 or 16 UK Promo Photos


As promised, here are all I have so far from the series of 8×10 black and white publicity stills from the UK, whose only true common denominator is that they have a small one- or two-digit number on a tiny inset square as part of the print. The typical still

Record World, Vol. 37 No. 1729, September 13, 1980


                  Most of the “new” items that turn up now are variations of things we’ve already seen. This Times Square soundtrack ad is identical to the ones shown here, but unlike those two it’s still attached to the magazine it was published

Times Square Program Book, Japan, June 1981, pages 20-24 (post 4 of 5)


“Let’s get together at … Hippy Power” (?)       Here at the end of the Japanese program book, we get the movie’s credits, an ad for the soundtrack album, and… the Times Square Top Ten? I can only imagine what’s being said, in relation to the film, about

Times Square Program Book, Japan, June 1981, pages 8-11 (post 2 of 5)


Here are the next four pages from the Japanese souvenir program for Time Square. These pages apparently have everything you need to know about the producer, director, and stars. Again, if anyone wants to contribute a translation, or donate to a fund for hiring a professional translator, you will have

Times Square Program Book, Japan, June 1981 (post 1 of 5)


This was almost certainly aimed at theatergoers and not the press, but I can’t be 100% certain, since as I’ve noted before, Google Translate makes a total hash of Japanese, and I don’t have the funds to have it professionally translated. (If anyone wants to help on that score, by

Times Square promotional flyer, Japan, 1981


  The front side of this approximately 7.5 by 10.5 inch sheet reproduces the Japanese movie poster, the only difference being the absence of the credit for EMI at the lower right.   The back is breathlessly loaded with more information about the film, the girls, and the soundtrack than

“… a culture of ‘Rag-Dolls’…” 1981 Press Kit, Denmark


This was sold to me as a Press Kit, but it looks to me more like the AFD Campaign Pressbook in intent, as it has a list of available promotional materials on the back. Theater owners might have a use for that, the press wouldn’t. The Danish publicity for Times
