It feels like the eighties, especially the early eighties, were a golden age for tabloid newspapers. In this commercial from 1982, we see what The Star (a family favorite) had to offer.
Front page news was E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Star has the inside skinny on the actress who helped bring E.T. to life. Along with an artist’s impression of everyone’s favorite alien. Also on tap in this issue? Why E.T’s pal couldn’t stop crying, Princess Caroline’s Isle of Love, intimate secrets of the Kennedys and much more for only 45 cents.
What a deal!
