Review & premiere of "Forrest Gump", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645525
July 6, 1994
LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 6, 1994
* Best "Forrest Gump" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* Comedy-drama - Tom Hanks
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Forrest Gump" 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: "'Simple Lessons From 'Gump'" with photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, double full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (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 totaling 30 pages. Great condition.
