featured a 2-page spread advertisement "teaser" for the up and coming motion
picture "Shock Treatment." I have purchased the two pages from a
seller, instead of the entire magazine (which the seller did not have).
On the backside of one of these two pages, there is a magazine identification
which reads "18 Almanac." On the other side, the page number reads
"41" (which means the 2 page spread fell on pages 42 and 43). At
first I thought the magazine was called "Almanac" and the "18" referred
to an issue number. Now, in reflection, I think the magazine was
called "18 Almanac" - as in a guide to 18 year olds just out of high school.
(There is an article on the page side of the Shock Treatment ad on tips
for find the correct college).
The date of the issue seems to be BEFORE the release
of the movie, because it doesn't use the standard image or logo for Shock
Treatment (Cosmo's face or font). Most likely, the traditional Shock
Treatment font (logo) and image (Cosmo's face) had not been developed yet
-- which makes this particular advertisement / magazine more rare and valuable.
NOTE: Previously, I posted on my site this spread
was in "Omni" magazine as it was told to me that way, but that information
is obviously wrong. Please disregard any past "Omni" references.
Here is a small scan of the 2 page spread. Click on the image
for a slightly larger view of it. Click HERE for an even larger view.
(Note: I couldn't get entire spread on one scan, so I scanned in two sections
and placed them together, so alignment might be off slightly).
