Weekend premiere of "Rocky", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 653564
December 3, 1979
LOS ANGELES TIMES, December 3, 1976
* Best "Rocky" advertisement
* Opening weekend movie premiere
* American sports drama film
* Sylvester Stallone - Rocky Balboa
A terrific issue on the weekend premiere of the motion picture hit "Rocky" 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!
Page 21 of section VI has a nice full age advertisement for the film printed on it's opening weekend. (see). The movie opened two days earlier on a Wednesday.
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 VI totaling 66 pages. Great condition.
