Cool Stuff!

battleofamazons_poster
We'll probably be looking at a mixed bag of stuff this time around... first up is this poster for "Battle of the Amazons"! Now, I'd never even heard of this one until I came upon the auction for this poster... and I have no idea if any of you have ever seen it, either... but I did just check out the trailer for it on YouTube, and yes, it is completely an exploitation film, looks incredibly cheesy! If you were expecting a 1970s-era version of Xena, Warrior Princess... well, that's probably as close as that decade got! More after the jump!

Here's a lobby card for "The Bat Whispers," which apparently had some influence on the creation of Batman!

Ah, time for some Beatles goodies! I'm not sure what the photo above was a promotion for... possibly taken at an Ed Sullivan appearance, but that's purely a guess!

Below, here's some original art for a Beatles Punch-Out Book (by which, of course, I mean a book in which you'd punch out stuff to make mini-standees or dioramas):

Above, a set of Beatles plastic figures produced in Spain! I don't know if these were the same figures produced in the USA.

bullwinkle_81puzzleart
Original art for a 1981 Bullwinkle puzzle! Wow, were they straying from the model or what? Below is the puzzle itself:

Apparently this Bullwinkle glass was produced around 1976, according to the seller...

No, I have no idea why anyone thought Bullwinkle castanets were a good idea, either.

Another piece of original puzzle art, this one's from 1982 (apparently the era of bad artwork on Bullwinkle licensed products?).

bullwinkle_signalflasher
One of these days, I'll have to go into my files and see how many variations of this light flashing gun were produced for all the different licenses!

bullwinkle_targetgame
And we'll wrap up this installment with this Bullwinkle/Dudley Do-Right target game!

Next time: Captain Action and More!

  1. Hang on... Is that a P-38 in That Attache Case?!? I though Bond more had the ugly PPK... Now a P-38 is the only gun i have any intrest in.. and that, from what small iamges i can see, looks like a p-38 and so does that scope.. but the silencer isn't right... it might be an older model Luger, cause the P-38 was the replacement for the out-dated and costly Luger..

  2. I actually paid to see BATTLE OF THE AMAZONS at age 14...twice! In spite of the Raquel Welch lookalike on the poster there was no one real standout Amazon. It was an Italian picture and more like one of those Sword and Sandal films from a decade earlier...only with more (but not a lot of ) nudity.

  3. Manic Man - Sorry it's taken so long to respond to your (And Steve's) comment! I have no idea what gun they were going for in that Attache Case, but I'd imagine the manufacturer used a toy gun they'd already been producing!

    Booksteve - Wow, two times? That's probably, well, two times more than I'll ever see it! I guess the nudity is what kept it from being on MST3K!
