"Music of the Heart" & "Being John Malkovich" premier ads in a Los Angeles newspaper...

Item # 645786

October 29, 1999

LOS ANGELES TIMES, October 29, 1999

* Best "Being John Malkovich" and "Music of the Heart" film advertisements
* Grand Opening Day movie premieres & reviews

A terrific issue containing full-page premiere ads of the motion picture hits "Being John Malkovich" and "Music of the Heart". There is perhaps no better issue to be found - this being 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).

The front page of section F has a review of the film headed: "'Being John Malkovich': Gently Unhinged" with photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. Also dramatic is the full-page ad for "Music of the Heart" (see images).

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 totaling 72 pages. Great condition.
