Halloween II (John Carpenter)...
Review & premiere of "Time Bandits", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646308
November 6, 1981
LOS ANGELES TIMES, November 6, 1981
* Halloween II (John Carpenter) - large ad
* Best "Time Bandits" advertisement - premiere showing
* British fantasy film - Monty Python connection
Although not the premiere weekend (it's the following weekend), this issue contains a hard-to-find large ad for John Carpenter's Halloween II. Due to its initial limited showing, such ads are uncommon.
This is also a terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Time Bandits" 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 VI has a review of the film headed: "'Time' Trek Warped And Wonderful" with photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see). Other nice movie advertisements as well.
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 62 pages. Great condition.
