eBay Watch: Hollywood Reporter's 50th Anniversary Trade Ad

From time to time I will post interesting items that I see on eBay that would be of interest to a LVC fan. These are not endorsements of the sellers, just merely my observations of interesting or rare items.

This is an example of The Hollywood Reporter's 50th Anniversary Trade Ad from 1980.  I imagine there were a number of these with different celebrities.

  1. And what does Lee say about here in the film? Something like "I'm ready to kick your ass out of this world" I think. He's talking to Snake.

    About 1973 there was some kind of tribute to the William Morris agency and Lee had a full page ad in Variety for that. It was a picture of Lee in a suite and they had the top of his head in shadow a bit I guess to cover his bald place he had by then. I think it read Lee was represented by William Morris Agency.

    I remember speaking to a lady on the phone who was Lee's rep in the 1960's, atleast the early to mid 60's, and I noticed her name and that she had Lee in Box-Office magazine but in 1969 she didn't have Lee then. I was trying to find out if Lee was going to try getting into U. S. films as a leading man like Clint and Bronson. But she didn't know other than she was happy he was doing so well in Europe. Then she told me that just 9 years ago she had much trouble getting Lee a role in a film. That she had to beg and twist arms to get him into "How the West Was Won" and she finally got him a part but it didn't help much and that only TV would give Lee a bit of work after 1962 until he ran into that Italian director and now he is a big star in Italy, Spain and Europe in general and making good money doing westerns and action films. Guess she didn't know he was about to do "Barquero" in the states for U. S. producers that very year. It was later I think that I noticed it in Variety.
