    188. The City of Lost Children (1995).

    Kitchen Sink Press entered into a cross-promotion agreement with Sony Classics Pictures and the French producer of this wonderful science fiction film by Jeunet & Caro. The basic plot: Several children are kidnaped by cloned henchmen for the evil Krank who is persuaded that stealing children's dreams will help him against his premature aging. However, Denree the little brother of a circus strongman called One (actor Ron Perlman), was among the children that were caught by the Cyclops. Eager to retrieve his brother, One will team with a clever nine year old girl, Miette, to save the children from the hands of the mad man.

    The amazing visuals convinced KSP to team up with Sony on this project. Other than producing some T-shirts, this promo button and distributing the movie poster (on which KSP's trademark appears), little came of the arrangement. This is one of the very few KSP buttons utilizing a photo image. The sub-titled film is definitely worth checking out. 1.25 inch diameter. $3.00

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
