2nd week of "Rocky", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 660683
December 8, 1979
LOS ANGELES TIMES, December 8, 1976
* "Rocky" movie advertisement
* 2nd week movie premiere
* American sports drama film
* Sylvester Stallone - Rocky Balboa
A terrific issue on the 2nd week 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 10 1/2 x 8 inch advertisement for the film printed on it's opening 2nd week. (see). The movie opened just 7 days earlier.
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 68 pages. Great condition.
