Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars: The Motion Picture

Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1983. Vintage press kit for the 1973 music documentary chronicling David Bowie's final live performance as Ziggy Stardust. Included in the press kit are four vintage black and white film still photographs and 21 pages of production information.

Shot on location with only four cameras in London's Odeon theater on July 3, 1973, the film witnesses Bowie's final performance as Ziggy Stardust. It would remain unreleased, save a scant handful of partial screenings, for another ten years, as the audio recordings from the event were so poor that the filmmakers did not want to use them. Only in the early 1980s did Bowie rerecord a number of post-production tracks, when he felt that he had finally put enough distance between himself and his Ziggy Stardust persona.

21 pages of production information, corner stapled, 8.5 x 11 inches. Photographs 8 x 10 inches. Stills and production information have a single soft crease, else Fine, housed in a Near Fine glossy full color studio folder.
