From The Macon Telegraph, Friday, January 14, 1977 edition, the ad for the movie "Nickelodeon," plus some others, including Disney's "The Shaggy D.A." Notice the "x" rating on the last two that played late at night at the Bibb theater. That was the 70's for you.

From the Jan. 14, 1977 edition of The Macon Telegraph, comes this ad for one of the many "new Bruce Lee" films that followed in the wake of his death. Hot on its heels is a film I'd like to have seen; "Ebony, Ivory and Jade."

From my copy of the Macon Telegraph, dated Friday, January 14, 1977, comes these two kong-sized items; first, the ad for the "Held Over!" movie in it's "5th Smash Week!" I took a date to see it at that very theater; I remember the movie more fondly than the date. It's pretty bad when a big hairy ape is more memorable than someone you are taking out!
And a unique Jim Beam ad that ties in both with the movie and "Ripley's Believe It Or Not."

This time we look at the admat for the 1968 Hammer film "The Devil's Bride," which the distributor apparently thought was more lurid and appealing than the orginal British title "The Devil Rides Out." They probably thought more people would be attracted to the idea of the devil's honeymoon than a midnight ride on his favorite steed, possibly to get a snack.
