From The Trude Forsher Collection

Just before filming for King Creole began in December 1957, Elvis received his military draft notice. Paramount and Presley petitioned and were successful in receiving a 60-day deferment, so filming of King Creole took place between January and March 12, 1958 and immediately after, Elvis reported for his Army induction on March 24. Offered is a spectacular black-and-white photo of Trude Forsher, her husband Bruno, one of their sons and Colonel Parker in topcoat with a monocle holding a bunch of the balloons with the depiction of Elvis’ head topped by a crown that was widely used in the promotion of the film. The photo is inscribed “To Trude and Bruno, Jeffrey & James, With Best Wishes, The Colonel.” The photo was likely snapped on the Hollywood studio lot where Trude was the secretary for Elvis and the Colonel. The photo measures 10 by 7 1/2 inches (25.4 x 19.05 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The photo presents with no defects in Near Mint condition.
