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!
