Rockers outdraw James Bond
“Screaming teenagers trying to mob members of the Duran Duran rock band added electricity to last night’s world premiere of the James Bond movie, A View to a Kill.
“The noisy event at San Francisco’s Palace of Fine Arts theater, where a fancy buffet party preceded the showing of the $30 million movie, was everything Hollywood film studios hunger for. It was glamorous, uproarious, hokey and bursting at the seams with colorful human behavior.”
This story about Duran Duran at the A View to a Kill movie premiere appeared on the front page of the San Francisco Chronicle on May 23, 1985.
