By the 1970s, pressbooks became rather dull affairs, usually black and white, and with an emphasis on poster art (for the newspapers) than pre-canned articles. This 8.5 x 14 inches pressbook shows all its pages, but I placed them out of order to move the poster pages toward the end. If you download the reader version, it will show the pressbook's pages in their correct order. Phantom of the Paradise is one of those odd movies that, while fetching, doesn't quite make sense, but just go with it for the rock horror opera aesthetics wrapped around a Faustian bargain and the dread of Dorian Gray. Of course the box office didn't know what to do with it, at the time, but it's now a cult movie and rightly so. Brian De Palma went wild with it and it has Paul Williams music. And that works for me.
