Premiere of "Billy Madison", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646734
February 10, 1995
LOS ANGELES TIMES, February 10, 1995
* Best "Billy Madison" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere
* American comedy film - Adam Sandler
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Billy Madison" 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 3 of section F has a 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 F totaling 64 pages. Great condition.
