Item # 646557
March 8, 1996
LOS ANGELES TIMES, March 8, 1996
* Best "Fargo" and "The Birdcage" advertisements
* Grand Opening Day movie premieres & reviews
* Black comedy crime & American comedy films
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "Fargo" & "The Birdcage", 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).
Section F has the reviews of the film headed: (see images). And perhaps more significant are the terrific, full page & double full page poster-like advertisements for the films printed on their 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 74 pages. Great condition.
