Review & premiere of "Starship Troopers", in a Los Angeles newspaper...

Item # 645920

November 07, 1997

LOS ANGELES TIMES, November 7, 1997

* Best "Starship Troopers" advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* American satirical military science-fiction film

A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Starship Troopers" 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, 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: "Stop Buggin' Me!" with related photo. And perhaps more significant is the terrific, double full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see).
Note the movies "Mad City" and "Eve's Bayou" also had it's opening day on this date.
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 62 pages. Great condition.
