Times Square press kit photographs: Robin Johnson

“TS-57-26 Robin Johnson, 16-year-old Brooklyn miss, makes her feature film singing and acting debut as Nicky Marotta, an uninhibited product of the streets who sets New York City on edge as a wild runaway from authority in Times Square.”

“TS-69-34A Robin Johnson is a runaway teenage product of the streets who dreams of becoming a rock music star and lets nothing get in her way to make it to the top in Times Square.”
© 1980 Associated Film Distribution

“TS-42-11A Robin Johnson effects a garish costume and make-up as she and her fellow teenage runaway flaunt authority as the ‘Sleaze Sisters’ on their wild dash through the back streets of New York City in Times Square.”

While this photograph is similarly © 1980 Associated Film Distribution, I don’t believe it was part of the official Times Square press kit. I remember seeing this publicity photograph after the release of Times Square, and finding Robin Johnson almost unrecognisable. I have no way of knowing if this publicity shot or Nicky Marotta looked more like the “real” Robin Johnson at the time!
