Review & premiere of "Red Heat", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645722
June 17, 1988
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 17, 1988
* Best "Red Heat" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* Buddy cop action - Arnold Schwarzenegger
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Red Heat" 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 VI has a review of the film headed: "Soviet 'Dirty Harry' Hits Chicago Streets in Flashy 'Red Heat'" with photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see).
Note that the movie "Great Outdoors" also had it's opening day on this date. (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 VI totaling 58 pages. Great condition.
