Seen Around the World

In his correspondence, Tom Towers mentioned a friend who saw "U.F.O." at a theater in Greece. This wasn't surprising, because within weeks of its U.S. release the motion picture made its debut overseas in numerous countries. Shown here are two publicity vehicles, one a popular black and white newspaper ad seen in the U.S., and the other the cover of the British press book. Note the balloon area on each; the American version uses the word "color," while the nearly identical British advertisement spells it as "colour."
