Rare original film press kit for the 1985 Berry Gordy movie "The Last Dragon" starring Taimak, Vanity, Chris Murney, Julius J. Carry III and Angela Viracco.
Film/movie press kits are promotional tools primarily used to generate publicity (a 'buzz'). A press kit is used to send details of the film to the media & journalists as well as acquisitions executives. Older vintage film press kits from pre-1990 (such as this one) were usually hand-typed and photocopied. A typical press kit will usually contain:
• A professional portfolio folder, usually with the film title & logo
• A complete list of cast and crew (aka 'cast and credits')
• Production Notes (about the film, plot synopsis, etc.)
• Individual Actor Biographies
• Black & White photograph publicity "stills" from the film, usually 8x10s.
• 20-page 'production' booklet for Berry Gordy's 'The Last Dragon' from Tri-Star Pictures.
• 'Production Notes' includes cast, crew, soundtrack info, technical credits & cast, biographies.
• 12 different 8"x10" B&W glossy photograph stills from the movie; these include the 'publicity' extra sheets that document info for each scene as depicted in each photo.
Condition: Very good. Photographs are pristine, like new. Paper may or may not show signs of fading/discolouration due to age. Outer folder has minor creasing and/or rounded corners. Press kit ships inside a plastic sleeve with a thick cardboard 13" x 10½" backing. THIS PRESS KIT does NOT contain an outer envelope or folder (just the production booklet and the photos).
BUYER'S TIP: The stills alone sell for up to $20 apiece on eBay/Etsy. This kit alone has 12 stills.
