Rare original film press kit for the 1985 movie "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" starring Helen Hunt, Sarah Jessica Parker, Shannen Doherty, Jonathan Silverman, Lee Montgomery.
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 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' outer folder (and envelope) from New World Pictures production company
• 4-page 'Synopsis' which includes a quick credit typed sheet
• 6-page packet of 'Production Notes'
• A 3-page 'Technical Credits' list of cast and crew from 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun'
• A 3-page 'About The Filmmakers' booklet
• 3 additional typed handouts (totaling 9 pages) for press/media, including "About the Cast...", ""Youth and Experience, An Unusual Combination" and "They've Got Rhythm".
• Individual Actor Biographies for Helen Hunt, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lee Montgomery, Jonathan Silverman
• 7 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.
