Robert Stack The Film Ad

We've been collecting film nostalgia from the 1959 film John Paul Jones starring Robert Stack. First we bought an autographed publicity still for your enjoyment. Today we're adding the complete large-format movie ad that appeared in national magazines. Read the patriotic Cold War text that trumpets the production as "one of the most important motion pictures ever produced." There is also a movie poster and a film soundtrack-LP. Oh, and we also located a copy of the Dell paperback (click to see). We'll keep looking. Meanwhile, keep checking our John Paul Jones home page. --JDR

JPJ Movie Ad Text (1959)

Title:
HALF HIS CREW LOST -- HIS SHIP IN FLAMES AND SINKING -- BUT WHEN THE ENEMY DEMANDED SURRENDER HIS REPLY RANG OUT -- "I have not yet begun to fight!"

Samuel Bronston Presents
JOHN PAUL JONES

Body Copy

For the first time a star-spangled motion picture captures the real-life excitement of America's JOHN PAUL JONES -- the incredible sailor-of-fortune who inspired a mighty navy into being!

This was a man! Range with him from George Washington's Virginia to Louis XVI's Versailles; from Jamaica's burning shores to Russia's frozen steppes -- as this fighting leader and fiery lover conquers in battle and in boudoir!

Your whole family should see -- and we weigh every word -- one of the most important motion pictures ever produced -- one worthy, if any film can be, of the red-blooded era it spans -- when a proud banner was raised and a proud nation was born!
