Does anyone remember...?
« on: August 04, 2010, 05:16:54 PM »
A poster popular in student rooms in the late 70s. It was a twilight sky, tall narrow silhouetted wooden towers (several) linked by catwalks - lights burned in some of the windows. Foreground, off to one side, was a wizard or warrior character. Have trawled the net for hours looking for this. I know two people who remember it and validate the description - anyone able to help?

Has anyone else had this happen?  When you only remember a few small details of something, and scour the web trying to find the answer, to no avail.  imbecile.gif

Yesterday. We were searching for a British 70s spy TV series. No idea of the title. Remember the guy in an office like mi5. He was going home for the weekend but before that he had to open his suitcase to his bosses to show he wasnt carrying any secret papers home. He walked off with umbrella and a leather suitcase. Catching a train. Then grabbing a bike at the station and  going home.

We were talking about how real it felt, and wanted to watch it all but didnt know the title.

So...brits....any ideas?  girly2.gif

Hmmm.. we may never know as "Searcher" is no longer a member. So It may remain shrouded in mystery.  hmmm.gif

Naw, Searcher was looking for something from the 70s, long before the digital piece I posted was created.
And, I think they would've remembered the pumpkin-eating toads.

One I always wanted to find, there was a 4 horsemen poster on a friends wall in the mid 80's, amazing art. Never seen one before or since.

The art on the 61' onesheet isnt bad, but this poster was more fantasy (not Boris's).

Who remembers going to the opening night (or, daytime sometimes) of a movie and the ushers handing out opening night programs? By the 1970s and 1980s, this was pretty rare in Oklahoma, though I remember distinctly programs being handed out for Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Outsiders.  Was this still common in big cities on the East and West coast of the U.S.?  Other countries?   Okie

Not in France.  I don't think we ever had anything handed out.
