Triple Irons

(Click on movie ad images to see in larger resolution.)

This ad was clipped from from the Macon Herald (GA) in 1973.

Sometimes I could kick myself for the slipshod way I collected movie ads back when I was in my early teens. This is a good example. I clipped the ad too closely around the border, also removing the theater info, which I considered superfluous at the time. And sometimes I wrote commentary on the ad, like at the bottom where I derided the idea that anything could beat Kung Fu.

I also flinch when I think about all the ads for the other movies out at the time that I clipped around and threw away. If only I had saved them all, what I blog I could have! But I only saved those I wanted to see.
