Review & premiere of "The Big Lebowski", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645470
March 6, 1998
LOS ANGELES TIMES, March 6, 1998
* Best "The Big Lebowski" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* Crime comedy - Jeff Bridges "The Dude"
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Big Lebowski" and perhaps no better issue could be found than this, the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry. 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 Coen brothers' 'The Big Lebowski' has pretty of their signature lunacy, but the sum is less than the total of its parts" with related photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, double full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see).
Also opening day advertisements for the films "Twilight" and "U.S. Marshalls" (see)
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 72 pages. Great condition.
