Item # 646190
May 2, 1997
LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 2, 1997
* Best "Austin Powers" "Breakdown" film advertisements
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere reviews
* Mike Myers and Kurt Russell
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" & "Breakdown" 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).
Section F has the reviews of each film And perhaps more significant is the terrific, single & double full page poster-like advertisements for these two films printed on their 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 62 pages. Great condition.
