1973's Charlie Varrick

Scanned from my copy of the Ft. Lauderdale News, Nov. 30, 1973. Below is an ad from the same day. I thought it was funny in looking back that both movies felt it necessary to say they were "in color," but I suppose the industry was still in transition from playing some black and white movies at the time.

Superman: The Movie

(Click to view super-sized.)

Full-page ad scanned in from the Friday, April 6th, 1979 edition of the Miami Herald.

Think about it: a full-page ad for a movie that's been in the theater for 17 weeks? Amazing, and something you may never see again. That movie was HUGE.
