IBB SOUNDTRACK LATE SHOWINGS Good news for all you night owls—this season we’ve increased the number of late night showings. Many viewers asked that we make this later time slot a part of our regular service. We hope you enjoy the addition. INSIDE THE NFL Here’s a comprehensive, one-hour look at the past week’s NFL action. The series starts Thursday, September 22, and runs through the Superbowl. The Thursday shows repeat on Fridays and Saturdays to make sure you don’t miss out on 22 the action—or the Football Sweepstakes. Every week during the regular season there’ll be a new contest —and maybe you can win a trip to the Superbowl! HOW HBO WORKS You see major motion pictures, sports, and specials —unedited and without commercial interruption. Scheduled for convenience New films and specials premiere on the weekends and run four to six times over the next four weeks. They appear on different days at different times to make sure you have ample chance to see the shows you wish—when you want. Continued opening run When a show starts near the end of a month, it continues its opening run into the early part of the next month. One to three showings Besides the new shows, each month we encore a few of the earlier programs that our research shows our viewers especially enjoyed. These are shown only one to three times during a month. JERRY LEWIS-SRO This month Jerry Lewis headlines on Standing Room Only. Along with his great concert, you’ll see Jerry talking about his early show business career. When asked if he remembered his first dressing room, he answered, “Yes, a nail on a backstage wall!” Lewis’ exclusive performance for HBO premieres Sept. 18th. WEEKENDS This fall, HBO weekends are more fun than ever. Now you see new shows every night—Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Also, most of the new shows now begin at 8 p.m. As you look through this month’s guide you’ll see we’ve got some exciting September weekends lined up for you.

The Most Devastating Detective Story Of This Century. SHADOW OF THE HAWK Skeptical, hungry and insatiably curious, two young reporters follow a thread of truth to the Oval Office —and a President resigns. This fascinating film gives flesh and blood to the headlines of the Watergate era, a time when few believed that reporters Woodward and Bernstein were on the right trail. Robert Red-ford and Dustin Hoffman play the dynamic duo perfectly—with a dogged humanity and cool professionalism that make this film a suspenseful and beautifully detailed front-page whodunit. Jason Robards (who earned one of the 4 Oscars the film received), Hal Holbrook, Jane Alexander and Martin Balsam also star. Mature theme.
