Review & premiere of "Speed", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 650074
June 10, 1994
LOS ANGELES TIMES, June 10, 1994
* Best "Speed" movie advertisement ?
* Grand Opening Day premiere review
* Action thriller film - Keanu Reeves
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Speed" 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 11 of section F has a movie review headed: "''Speed': Movie Is a Wild Ride to the End of the Line" And perhaps more significant is the terrific, double 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 F totaling 70 pages. Nice condition.
