August 13, 1939
THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 13, 1939
* The Wizard of Oz

Page 4X has an historic advertisement in early film history. See photos for a 6 x 6 inch ad for the premiere of "The Wizard of Oz" in New York City. This was 4 days prior to the opening for this famous movie on August 17th. But what is more appealing is a page X3 pictorial of the characters prior it's opening. A very early item on this famous film. Rare as such.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with reporting on the tensions in pre World War II Europe. Complete, thick Sunday issue with 100+ pages, rag edition in nice condition.
