Kung Fu Time Capsule: Admats

There was once a time when you could open the newspaper to check the local movie listings, and instead of finding just a boring box of text listing of the movies like now days, you could find a bunch of admats with artwork, taglines, review snippets, and other things to really grab your attention. It's definitely a lost art that you don't see much anymore, which is unfortunate. Well here in the Faces of Fu Kung Fu Time Capsule, I'll occasionally bring you a glimpse of these blasts from the past. Today I bring to you an admat for "Master of the Flying Guillotine," starring Jimmy Wang Yu which happens to be one of my most favorite Fu flicks of all time.

You can see the similarites to my original one-sheet.

Here's some close-ups of the cool captions...

Now doesn't an ad like that make a movie seem more interesting than just...

Master of Flying Guillotine [R] .......... 8pm

You bet it does! Keep an eye out for more admats in the future!
