Item # 668374

May 17, 1990

LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 17, 1990 

* Jim Henson death (1st report)
* "The Muppets" creator - puppeteer

* Sammy Davis Jr. death (1st report)
* Singer - actor - dancer - comedian
* Best title to be had ?


The bottom of the ftpg. has two notable announcements: "Consummate Entertainer Sammy Davis Jr. Dies at 64" with a photo of him, and the other: "Jim Henson Dies at Age 53; Muppets' Creative Genius" with a photo of him. Both articles carry over to inside pages of section A. Section F also has ftpg. reports (and photos) on their lives & talents, carrying over to inside pages as well.
Great to have this report in a newspaper from the capital of the entertainment industry, where Sammy Davis Jr. lived and died.
The complete sections A thru F only with 106 of 184 pages. Very nice condition.
