Review & premiere of "The Lord of the Rings", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646179
December 19, 2001
LOS ANGELES TIMES, December 19, 2001
* Best "The Lord of the Rings" movie advertisement
* Grand Opening Day premiere review
* Epic high fantasy adventure film
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" 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: "Fulfilling a Grand Quest" with 2 related photos. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, 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.
Present are the complete sections 1 and F totaling 56 pages. Great condition.
