Premiere of "Raging Bull", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645772
December 19, 1980
LOS ANGELES TIMES, December 19, 1980
* Best "Raging Bull" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* Jake LaMotta boxing drama
* Robert De Niro - Martin Scorsese
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Raging Bull" 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).
Page 11 of section IV has a terrific, full page 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 IV totaling 56 pages. Great condition.
