LOS ANGELES TIMES, Aug. 10, 2011
* Premiere of "The Help" - advertisement and review
* Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis, and Emma Stone
* Multiple award winner
A terrific issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "The Help", and perhaps no better issue could be found than this, it being the leading newspaper from the home of the entertainment industry - the Hollywood area's prime publication.
The front page of the Calendar (Section D) has a review of the film headed: "A Kitchen Rebellion" (with a related photo), and continues on page D11. Another article has: "Stone rolls swiftly to fame", which reviews Emma Stone's performance and continues on page D10. Perhaps the best item is the top-to-bottom-page advertisement for this noteworthy film.
The newspaper is believed to be complete in multiple sections, but is being offered for the described content. In very good condition. See images for details.
Note: Where else might one find authentic, large 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).
Background (Wikipedia): The Help is a 2011 American drama directed by Tate Taylor.

The film is an adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's 2009 novel of the same name. The Help was produced by DreamWorks Studios and distributed by Disney's Touchstone Pictures label.
