Review & premiere of "The Sandlot", in a Los Angeles newspaper...
Item # 670692
April 07, 1993
LOS ANGELES TIMES, April 7, 1993
* Best "The Sandlot" film advertisement
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere review
* American coming-of-age baseball cult film
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Sandlot" 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: "'The Sandlot': A Grand Slam of Cliches". And perhaps more significant is the nice, 4/5 page advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day. (see). Also the opening day advertisement and review for the movie "Indecent Proposal".
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 38 pages. Great condition.
