Review & premiere of "Trading Places", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646650
June 8, 1983
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 8, 1983
* Best "Trading Places" movie advertisement
* Grand Opening Day premiere review
* American comedy film - Eddie Murphy
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Trading Places" 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 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!
The front page of section F has a movie review headed: "'A WASP GETS STUNG IN 'TRADING'" Page 3 of this section has a 12 x 10 1/2 inch advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day.
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 34 pages. Great condition.
