The Skeletal Spotlight shines this time on:
"The Skull" newspaper ad from 1965.
This one was from a 1965 newspaper. I was saving it for a future post on "The Skull," but I'm showing it now to introduce a new blog I have just begun (Don't worry, it won't supplant this one, only supplement it). I'll revist "The Skull" and treat it right soon with some screen grabs and a good look at the posters.
What this post is REALLY about...
The blog I'm plugging is called "HELD OVER! Newspaper Movie Ads" and it is just for showcasing the movie ad clippings that fill up my old scrapbook. Whereas "Sweet Skulls" focuses on, well... skulls, this new blog will reflect the varied interests of my young self and will feature ads from genres such as horror, sci-fi, kung fu, Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, etc. I'll be posting them every few days or so over there til I've done them all.
If you get a kick out of seeing old newspaper ads for movies, check it out occasionally. Each one featured in a post are ones I clipped with my own young hands (hence the uneven edges) and scanned in with my somewhat older hands now.
I also plan on posting other occasional goodies that I clipped also, like TV ads for shows I liked, and articles about the movies and TV programs. I think it will be fun! Leave some comments when you visit and let me know if you like it.
