The December of 1979 was one of the most exciting for me as a Star Trek fan that I had ever had. The fever pitch that had been building from the magazine articles, tv spots, and newspaper ads like the one above had me all twitterpated. The ad above was clipped from the Atlanta Journal.
For more articles and clippings about the release of the first Star Trek movie, go to my other blog: http://www.mystartrekscrapbook.blogspot.com/ and relive those days, without the need for a visit from the Ghost of Christmas Past!

Merry Christmas to all my readers! And as Tiny Tim observed, "God bless us, every one!"

The photos and movie info came from the same paper. Note that "The Stranger Wore A Gun" was a 3-D movie. Back then the gimmick was used to try to draw people back into the theater as TV stole them away. Now we're seeing a resurgence of 3-D being used for much the same reason.
I'll post more from this December paper soon, as we look back on the holiday season of fifty-five years ago! Were you even alive then? I was five years away from gracing my parents with my presence.

Another ad slick that ran in the "Castle of Frankenstein" magazine., issue #11 published in 1967.
Originally shot in 1955, by a Czech filmmaker, the film was re-edited with additional American footage by a distributor and released in 1964.
