March 1972 - More Movie Advertisements

Alexandra Hay was a busy and normally naked, character actress in the late 1960's and early 70's

Hi gang, this batch is from the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph, March 1972.

Some nice ones here..enjoy...

Disney's thematic sequel to Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1972)

Modern audiences might not be aware of how common it was in the pre-video era for films to get re-released into the theaters years after their initial release. Major films, like the Ten Commandment, Gone With the Wind and a few others would come out to the theaters again every two or three years.

This ad for XXX entertainment was directly next to the ad for Bednobs and Broomsticks, a not uncommon situation in the 1970's and one that eventually led to parental complaints, eventually sending these type of ads to their own separate page.

One of the great films of all time, The Godfather (1972)

James Coburn B-Picture about rodeo riders, The Honkers (1972)

A wide selection was always available at the Drive-in

Connery returns as James Bond, in 1972's Diamonds Are Forever

Re-release of My Fair Lady

As a 21st Century guy, I have trouble picturing any David Lean film as the "Movie and Music of Young America", especially not Doctor Zhivago. 

Documentary on the murder trial of the two famous anarchists.

In the early 1970's "X" rated films would still show up in the local theater. It would be a few more years before the "X" was automatically going to keep a movie out of normal theaters.

Loved, The Hospital (1972) George C Scott and Diana Rigg star in a sharp, evil dark comedy. Highly recommended
