Item # 666964
October 8, 1993
LOS ANGELES TIMES, October 8, 1993
* Best "Gettysburg" movie advertisement
* Grand Opening Day premiere & review
* Epic American Civil War film
* Demolition Man
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Gettysburg" 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).
Page 6 of section F has a review of the film, headed: "Epic 'Gettysburg' Provides Evenhanded History Lesson" with a related photo. And perhaps just as significant is the terrific, double full page advertisement for the film (see).
This was the day that "Demolition Man" opened with full page ad and review 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 66. Nice condition.
