Portland, OR: New Oregon Publishers, 1984. First Edition, First Printing. Original wraps. 8 3/8 X 10 7/8 Inches. 70 PP. Very Good. Item #543
Incredibly scarce Oregon Magazine from December, 1984. The one-page article "The Goonies Come to Town" on page 70 provided the world with the first glimpse of "The Goonies". Filming on the movie began in late October, 1984 and this article was published in December, 1984 - only two months after the first camera rolled in Astoria. The author admittedly has a hard time getting any information as Spielberg had deemed the filming in Astoria a "closed set" in an effort to stem this sort of intrusion. No real secrets were divulged, but knowing what we know now, this was the first talk of "The Goonie House", haystack rock at Ecola State Park and the Flavel House - three of the principal locations for anyone taking the Goonie quest. The original staple binding is intact, but quite tender. Minor creases and hints of wear at edges and corners. A SCARCE PIECE OF ORIGINAL GOONIE HISTORY.
