Review & premiere of "Monty Python's Life of Brian", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646351
August 17, 1979
LOS ANGELES TIMES, August 17, 1979
* Best "Monty Python's Life of Brian" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* British religious satire comedy film
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Monty Python's Life of Brian" 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 30 of section IV has a review of the film headed: "Python's Spoof of Biblical Spectacle" 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 IV totaling 72 pages. Great condition.
