Review & premiere of "Army of Darkness", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 645806
February 19, 1993
LOS ANGELES TIMES, February 19, 1993
* Best "Army of Darkness" movie advertisement
* Grand Opening Day premiere review
* Horror comedy cult classic film
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Army of Darkness" 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 8 of section F has a review of the film headed: "'Army of Darkness' Thriller Marches to Its Own Drum" with 2 related photos. 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.
Also included are large and/or full-page ads for: "A Few Good Men", "Groundhog Day", "Scent of a Woman", "Unforgiven", "The Crying Game", "Aladdin", and "Sommersby".
Present are the complete sections 1 and F totaling 58 pages. Great condition.
