NAME THAT GOONIE--As evidenced by the newspaper ads for “The Goonies,” show biz is definitely a struggle to the top. Eagle-eyed readers may have noted the weekly change in the film’s ads depicting the goonies clinging to a stalactite over a seemingly bottomless pit. In the national campaign (with different regional ads), Josh Brolin had the most prominent top position the first week. He was replaced by fellow goonie Ke Huy Quan the second week. Then Sean Astin. And so on. At least in Los Angeles.

Asked about these musical stalactites, Michael Thau, assistant to director Richard Donner, said, “We’re quite sure that each of the kids will develop their own following and rotating them will afford the public a better view.”
