The story of family separated by war, a twisted love triangle and tragic end, Love Me Tender was released in 1956, marking the very start of Elvis’ acting career and his first motion picture. Although originally quite a minor role, the part Elvis was given was revised to include extra lines and added scenes to accommodate his rabid fan base. The film’s original title The Reno Brothers was changed to Love Me Tender as a result of the young singing sensation’s new hit song of the same title that had just been released. Love Me Tender was the only film in which Elvis appeared and was not given top billing, and was also widely regarded as his best performance. Only four songs were used in the film, “We’re Gonna Move,” “Love Me Tender,” “Poor Boy,” and “Let Me,” which were released on the mini-album LP in November 1956 by RCA. Offered is an oversized black-and-white studio-issued photo of Elvis on stage during the scene in which he is singing “Let Me” in the film. The oversized photo measures 10 by 13 inches (25.4 x 33.02 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The oversized photo presents with few defects. NM condition.
