A little less than half the size of a standard one-sheet poster, and not quite twice the size of a lobby card, this was apparently designed for display in theater lobbies in Italy. I guess this is what they got in place of lobby cards, which still puts them way ahead of the US which got nothing comparable.
The shot on the left of Nicky being dragged out of the WJAD studio is a cropped version of the one we saw on one of the UK lobby cards. The shot of Trini Alvarado as Pammy on the right, in costume for the final concert sequence, is the same shot used for the soundtrack inner record sleeves and on the cover of the “Help Me!” single (the Italian one, anyway). I think this is the first and possibly only time we get to see it in full color. The black background and glamorous lighting make me suspect it was taken by Mick Rock at the same time as this black-and-white photo, but that’s all it is, a suspicion.
The text is identical to the full Italian poster, slightly reformatted.
