Review & premiere of "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646219
June 11, 1982
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 11, 1982
* Best "E.T. the Extra Terrestrial" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day premiere review
* Steven Spielberg - science-fiction fantasy
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" and perhaps no better newspaper 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 VI has a review of the film, headed: "FILM OF THE DOUBLE DECADE?" And perhaps more significant is the terrific, full page advertisement for the film (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 VI only totaling 48. Great condition.
