Item # 645787
May 22, 1998
LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 22, 1998
* Best "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premier review
* American black comedy road cult film - Johnny Depp
* Ads for "The Horse Whisperer" & "Deep Impact"
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" 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).
Page 14 of section F has a review of the film headed: "A Chaotic 'Loathing' Comes to Big Screen" with photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, double full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. Also included are large ads for "The Horse Whisperer" and "Deep Impact" (see images).
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 68 pages. Great condition.
