New Times Square digital transfer

Posted on 22nd September 2019 in "Times Square"

Kino Lorber announced yesterday a new 4K digitization of Times Square for release in 2020. Rumors of an impending blu-ray release have abounded for years; this time, I believe it.

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

Posted on 12th September 2019 in "Times Square"

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.









The girls dropping their first television was on the second Yugoslavian lobby card poster, and had previously been published in Film Review, Vol 31 No 1, January 1981, Movie 81, No 2, February 1981, and on the back of the Japanese promo flyer, and was also in the other set of UK lobby cards, and made its final appearance as a German lobby card.









Nicky with her guitar in the hideout was later used on the sole Mexican lobby card to come to light.










And Pammy and Johnny witnessing Nicky’s meltdown (off-camera) was later on the second Yugolavian lobby card poster, a on a German lobby card, and, reversed, in the Japanese souvenir program book.
