Allan Moyle, still at work


And here’s another shot of Allan Moyle giving the girls direction, this time for the “Your Daughter Is One” sequence. I can only imagine what Trini and Robin are thinking, based on their expressions. I wonder what Moyle was telling them. Behind Moyle, on the left and out of focus,

Allan Moyle at work


Way back in October 2014, I posted a photo of Robin and Trini getting ready to shoot a scene that was later cut from the film, and complained that although the vast majority of Times Square publicity stills don’t actually come from shots of takes used in the film, there

AFD Campaign Pressbook (pages 1-4)


“Newcomer Robin Johnson is a revelation as Nicky…”   The Campaign Pressbook from Associated Film Distribution was a promotional tool for theater owners. The first part repeated almost verbatim the biographical articles from the Press Materials folder, but supplied them in a format with illustrations that could be sent directly

U.S. Insert Card Poster


  Insert cards aren’t made anymore, but they were my favorite form of movie poster, because the three windows in my bedroom way back when were spaced perfectly to fit two insert cards between. Also, the heavier card stock made them more durable when taking them down and putting them

“The Trend Settles in New York”

Pammy and Nicky On the Run


      This is an 8×10 print, showing the full 35mm frame, of Nicky and Pammy running from the plainclothes detective, about to turn left and duck into the adult theater. The paper it’s printed on, as are most of the next batch of photos I’ll be posting, is

On Location


This is the only photo I’ve come across showing the production of Times Square. The assistant director’s full name is is Alan Hopkins. In the center are, of course, Robin and Trini Alvarado. All the way to the right, we can see half of director Allan Moyle. This is the
