An issue on the premiere of the motion picture hit "Coal Miner's Daughter" 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 this section VI has a opening day review of the movie headed: "Looking The Part Of A Good Ole Boy" with photo. (see) Page 3 of section VI has a poster-like advertisement for the film printed on it's opening day.
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 48 pages. Nice condition.
