2nd weekend of "Saving Private Ryan", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 660610
July 31, 1998
LOS ANGELES TIMES, July 31, 1998
* Best "Saving Private Ryan" advertisement
* World War II D-Day invasion - Tom Hanks
* 2nd weekend - following Friday of opening
A terrific issue on the 2nd weekend of the motion picture hit "Schindler's List" and perhaps no better newspaper 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).
Pages 18 & 19 has a double full page advertisement for the film (see). Other nice movie ads as well.
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 only totaling 76. Great condition.
