Review & premiere of "Animal House", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 646843
August 4, 1978
LOS ANGELES TIMES, August 4, 1978
* Best "Animal House" movie advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* American comedy film - John Landis
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "National Lampoon's Animal House" 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).
The front page of section IV has a review of the film headed: "When Greek Meets Greek" And perhaps more significant is the terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see).
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 56 pages. Light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally very nice.
