Colombia newspaper ads

Here we have ads from the Colombian newspaper El Tiempo (The Time), from when King Creole premiered in Bogotá, in October of 1959.
The paper ran daily ads to promote the movie, starting on October 20 (3 days before the premiere) and ending on October 27 (on the day of the final showing).
Presented here are all seven different ads from this week, in chronological order, starting with October 20 and 21 (for which the same lay-out was used).
 
A big thank you to Josep Rulló for sharing these cool ads!

  7. Hey Ger:

    How come you waited two weeks after your site opened to tell me about it. I’m starting with the first post and working forward. I’ve got a lot of photos of foreign Elvis movie posters. Would you like me to send you those for the movies you’ve already done? I see it isn’t possible to paste them in this Comment box.

    Feel free to use any images you find on ElvisBlog. They’re not really mine, anyway.

    Thank you for your kind offer(s) Phil.
    But we have over 240 worldwide King Creole posters/stills waiting to be posted here.
    What we really need right now is a bit more time! :)

    Congrats on this site! I love this movie & heard the songs for the first time during the 70′s from the soundtrack LP which belonged to my mother (original fan). I have the one-sheet poster framed.

    Very nice updates, I have the Spain version but then again the flyer only, I do believe the poster has the same artwork……The picture you used is also the flyer.

    The Spanish poster is the best, in my opinion.
    Just the same as the EP.
    Excellent images.

    Leave it to those Belgians to create great artwork, even the Posters such as Easy Come Easy Go has a great lay out, when Elvis died “Atlas” made a couple of new posters wich are as ugly as hell but then again still collectible….once again Great Topic Bob, ill be coming back and back and back and back…….

    If it can be of interest to any of your readers, KING CREOLE received the name BALADA SANGRENTA in Brazil, which means Bloody Ballad. Thanks.
