LOS ANGELES TIMES, May 24, 1991
* Best "Backdraft" & "Thelma & Louise" film advertisements
* Grand Opening Day movie premiere reviews
* Kurt Russell - Susan Sarandon - Genna Davis
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hits "Backdraft" & "Thelma & Louise", 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 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 have the opening day reviews for these two movies with 2 related photos. Inside have full page advertisements for the films on their opening day.
A quite rare issue as it would not have been saved since it contains no historically significant content. Complete 1st and F sections only which total 76 pages, great condition.
