Opening week of "Titanic", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 655696
December 24, 1997
LOS ANGELES TIMES, Dec. 24, 1997
* Best Titanic film advertisement
* Grand opening week premiere
* Leonardo DiCaprio & Kate Winslet
A terrific issue on the opening week of the motion picture hit "Titanic" 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 nice poster-like advertisement for the film which had it's opening day just 5 days earlier. (see) A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content.
Present are the complete sections A and F only which totals 38 pages, nice condition.
