Item # 646382
June 16, 1978
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 16, 1978
* Best "Grease" and "Jaws 2" advertisements
* Grand Opening Day movie premieres & reviews
* Musical romantic comedy & thriller films
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "Grease" & "Jaws 2", 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).
Inside section F has the reviews of the film headed: (see images). And perhaps more significant are the terrific, full page poster-like advertisements for the films 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 F totaling 68 pages. Great condition.
