Review & premiere of "Saving Private Ryan", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645435
July 24, 1998
LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 24, 1998
* Best "Saving Private Ryan" advertisement
* World War II D-Day invasion - Tom Hanks
* Grand opening day premiere review
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Schindler's List" and perhaps no better newspaper 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: "Soldiers Of Misfortune" with a related photo. The article carries over to page 22. And perhaps just as significant is the terrific, double full page advertisement for the film (see).
A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Present are the complete sections 1 and F only totaling 72. Great condition.
