Original authentic film press kit for the 1984 movie "A Test of Love" starring Drew Forsythe, Wallace Eaton, Simon Chilvers, Monica Maughan, Mark Butler.
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.
• Original authentic 'A Test of Love' outer folder from Universal/MCA production company
• 5-page booklet containing 'cast, credits & crew'
• 15 pages of "Production Notes" containing biographies and a film synopsis
• 8 different 8"x10" B&W glossy photograph stills from the movie
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.
BUYER'S TIP: The stills alone sell for up to $20 apiece on eBay/Etsy. This kit alone has 8 stills.
