Review & premiere of "Lethal Weapon", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646223
March 6, 1987
LOS ANGELES TIMES, March 6, 1987
* Best "Lethal Weapon" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* Buddy cop action film - Mel Gibson
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Lethal Weapon" 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 4 of section VI has a review of the film headed: "GIBSON EXPLODES AS 'LETHAL WEAPON'" 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 VI totaling 68 pages. Great condition.
