Review & premiere of "National Lampoon's Vacation", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646328
July 29, 1983
LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 29, 1983
* Best "National Lampoon's Vacation" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* American road comedy cult film - Chevy Chase
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "National Lampoon's Vacation" 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 16 of section VI has a review of the film headed: "ONE 'VACATION' THAT ISN'T ANY FUN" 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 46 pages. Great condition.
