Typed caption on verso: "EMPIRE OF THE SUN/Set to score another hit for top American filmmaker STEVEN SPIELBERG is his spell-binding new epic entitled 'EMPIRE OF THE SUN'. Totally different to his previous works such as 'The Colour Purple' and 'E.T.', this story tells of the terrifying drama that besets 'Jim Graham', an 11-year-old English schoolboy (played by newly-discovered young actor CHRISTIAN BALE) when the armed forces of Imperial Japan marched into Shanghai on December 8th 1941. It is described as a story of survival and courage based on J.G. BALLAD's best-selling book drawn from his own childhood experience with his parents during World War II. The production is said to be the first major Hollywood film ever shot on location in the Republic of China, and was arranged after complicated negotiations. The film employs 15,000 extras plus 500 American, British, Chinese and Spanish crew members, working simultaneously in three countries - China, England and Spain."
