Opening day premiere of "The Silence of the Lambs", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645443
February 14, 1991
LOS ANGELES TIMES, Feb. 14, 1991
* Best "The Silence of the Lambs" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* Jodie Foster - Anthony Hopkins
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Silence of the Lambs" 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 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).
Page 6 of section F has a advertisement for the film on it's opening day. While not opening day ads, there are also large ads for the following Academy Award winning films: "Dances with Wolves", "Awakenings", and "GoodFellas".
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 60 pages. Great condition.
