This ad promoting the movie’s opening has the same art as the one published previously in the Leader, but with the addition of the theaters it will be in. It’s essentially a black-and-white version of the quad poster, the top half of the painting by Cummins.

It appeared in a film magazine, but I don’t know which one. It’s on heavy magazine stock, not newsprint, and on the back is an ad for Seems Like Old Times, but unfortunately the portion of the page I have doesn’t have the name of the magazine or the page number.

Fotogramas No. 1650, March 25, 1981

    Two months before Times Square opened in Spain, the film magazine Fotogramas ran the same kind of promotional article we've seen in Mexico, Thailand, and Germany. The article contains nothing new, but four of the six stills from the film never appeared anywhere else as far as I…

Robin and Trini “Bandphotos”, UK 1981

More recently-turned-up Times Square publicity from England. Exactly how these fit in with the rest of it, I'm not sure. I'm guessing they were relatively early UK publicity, since the photos still have the American numbers on them. Perhaps before their own publicity machine got going, EMI contracted with Alan…
