Review & premiere of "Toy Story", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645388
November 22, 1995
LOS ANGELES TIMES, Nov. 22, 1995
* Best "Toy Story" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day premiere
* Woody & Buzz Lightyear
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Toy Story" and perhaps no better issue could be found than this, the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry - the Hollywood area's prime publication.
Note: Where else might one find authentic, poster-size ads for Opening Day showings, in the most desirable Hollywood-area newspaper - as we were lucky enough to obtain this (and others) indirectly from the Los Angeles Times' own collection? It simply doesn't get any better! In over 40 years of collecting, we have yet to see such unique & dramatic coverage with truly top-shelf, eye-catching displayability (see images).
The front page of section F has a review of the film headed: "The Secret Life of Toys: A 'Story' For All Ages" with a color photo. The article carries over to page 15. And perhaps just as significant is the terrific, color poster-like advertisement for the film which consumes two pages (see).
Note also that the ftpg. of section F also has a review of the new Martin Scorsese film "Casino" which carries over to page 6 & features a full page advertisement.
A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Present are the complete sections A and F totaling 54 ( of 114) pages. Great condition.
