"First Blood" & "Halloween III", in a Los Angeles newspaper...

Item # 662825

October 22, 1982

LOS ANGELES TIMES, October 22, 1982

* Best "First Blood" & Halloween III" advertisements
* Grand Opening Day movie premieres
* Action & Science fiction horror films

A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "First Blood" & "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" 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 VI has a review of the "First Blood" film headed: "Life After Vietnam" And perhaps more significant is the terrific, full page poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see).
Page 8 has a 16 x 10 inch opening day advertisement for the horror film "Halloween III: Season of the Witch"
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 44 pages. Great condition.
