Premiers & Reviews: Disney's "The Little Mermaid" & "Steel Magnolias"...

Item # 654925

November 15, 1989

LOS ANGELES TIMES, November 15, 1989

* "The Little Mermaid" (Disney) & "Steel Magnolias"
* Premier showings with both reviews & full-page ads
* Great (Best?) to have in a Hollywood regional newspaper

A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion pictures "The Little Mermaid" (Disney) & "Steel Magnolias" - 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. See images for details.

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).

Also included on the front page of the Calendar Section is: "Toasting a Song-and-Dance Man," which is an article regarding a "toast" of Sammy Davis Jr. which includes a photo of he and Gregory Hines, and another of Eddie Murphy, Ella Fitzgerald, and Michael Jackson.

These issues are quite rare as it would not have typically been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Present are the complete 1st and Calendar sections. Great condition.
