Review & premiere of "The Big Lebowski", in a Los Angeles newspaper...



Item # 645810

March 6, 1998

LOS ANGELES TIMES, March 6, 1998

* Best "The Big Lebowski" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* Crime comedy - Jeff Bridges "The Dude"


A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Big Lebowski" 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 F has a review of the film headed: "The Coen brothers' 'The Big Lebowski' has pretty of their signature lunacy, but the sum is less than the total of its parts" with related photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, double full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see).
Also large or full-page opening day advertisements for the films "Everest", "Twilight", "Hush" and "U.S. Marshals", and additional ads for: "As Good As It Gets", "Titanic" (double-page), "Goodwill Hunting" (double-page), "Wings of the Dove", "L.A. Confidential", "The Full Monty", "Dark City", "The Wedding Singer" and "Dangerous Beauty".
A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Present are the complete sections A and F totaling 72 pages. Great condition.
