Los Angeles: Cineplex-Odeon Films, 1988. Vintage press kit for Academy screenings of the 1988 film. Kit includes a 31 page press booklet, twelve black and white studio still photographs in their original glassine envelope, twelve clippings of "For Your Consideration" ads for the film, two ad clippings and an article clipping for the film, two copies of "Photo Captions for Color Slides," presumably for the screenings, and a Cineplex Odeon Films January Academy Screening Schedule bi-fold, all housed in a color Cineplex Odeon Films folder. Laid in is a bi-fold for the 1988 Robert Altman television film, "The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial," starring Eric Bogosian, housing two clippings of articles and a promotional photograph of the cast.

Based on the 1987 Pulitzer Prize nominated play by Eric Bogosian and Tad Savinar, and the 1987 book "Talked to Death: The Life and Murder of Alan Berg" by Stephen Singular. Bogosian stars as the acerbic Jewish radio talk show host Barry Champlain, who, as his show is about to go nationwide, must confront his distrust of the network management, his dysfunctional relationship with his wife, and the increasingly threatening neo-nazis angered by his outspoken opinions. One of director Oliver Stone's more modest and affecting films.

Set in and shot on location in Dallas, Texas.
