Finally we get a couple photos with Robin front and center and facing the camera. The first is as Nicky is dragged from the WJAD studio screaming for Pammy. In the film, we see this entirely looking down from Johnny’s control room. That’s the leg of George Morfogen on the left, playing station manager Don Dowd. All his lines in the script were cut from the film, but he got to deliver a sad nod when Johnny cuts Nicky’s live broadcast, and take Nicky’s guitar as JoJo and Simon drag her from the room. In the shot used in the film, the guitar faces the other way as he grabs it.
And here’s Pammy beaming as Nicky sings “Damn Dog” atop the Times Square Theater marquee. Of course nothing in the film is shot from quite this angle; the closest image has Pammy to the left instead of the right. In other similar shots, Nicky’s sweater sleeves are down instead of pushed up by her elbows.
I’ve mentioned previously that these images had been previously scanned and posted, with the lobby card text cropped out. The page on which they’re posted also includes several scans of images from the US Press Materials folder, also with the borders and text information cropped off. There are three color images (reproduced below) that share the dimensions of the UK lobby card images, which leads me to believe that they originally were UK lobby cards. That makes a total of 11 lobby cards, which is a strange number, so I also think there’s one more that’s yet to turn up.
