The UK press kit had its own logo, a black-and-white Nicky atop a color theater marquee made of the words "Times Square".  Text:  EMI FILMS presents A ROBERT STIGWOOD Producton TIMES SQUARE EMI

The UK Press Kit is an even nicer package than its US counterpart, with its own logo featuring Nicky atop the theater marquee. Inside the big white folder is a smaller silver folder that holds the materials. (The reflective silver didn’t scan very well, I did what I could.) It almost certainly was produced during the summer or autumn of 1980, before the US opening of the movie.

 

 

The materials inside, unfortunately… I am not entirely confident that what I have is a complete press kit. There are two sets of mostly-but-not-quite-identical text pages, one on A4 size paper with a more elaborate letterhead than the US pages, and one on 8½ x 11 inch paper with no logos at all. And the A4 pages include a list of the photographs in the kit, but that list doesn’t quite match up with the photos I have. I have four copies of the US press kit so I have a pretty good idea of what was supposed to be in it; this is only UK press kit I’ve ever seen, and I have a few doubts.

Nevertheless, it still has some neat stuff in it. We’ll start having a look at it next time.
