In his first Western, Elvis Presley is cast as Pacer Burton, son of a Kiowa mother and a Texan father with a half brother, Clint, played by Steve Forrest. As the peacemaker, Pacer finds himself caught in a battle of two cultures and being drawn into the deadly violence. Originally Frank Sinatra and Marlon Brando were set to be cast for the role of the Burton brothers, but after the executive producer’s death, the rights were assumed in 1958 by 20th Century Fox, which chose Presley for the main role. The film was distributed by 20th Century Fox in December of 1960. As a result of his desire to be taken more seriously as an actor and this role providing the ideal format, Elvis insisted that two songs be removed from the four he had recorded for the film. This created Elvis’ first movie to have so few musical numbers. Although lighter on songs, a shirtless Elvis brandishing a shotgun dominates the right side of this large banner. He is flanked by co-stars Barbara Eden and Dolores Del Rio with dark blue text set against an orange background to make for a visual impact as big as this banner. The paper banner measures approximately 24 by 80 inches (60.96 x 203.2 cm), is stored rolled and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The banner exhibits the expected scuffing and chipping that characterize these banners, but the colors remain bright and bold. There are many scratches and edge wear. Excellent condition.
1960 <em>Flaming Star</em> Movie Theater Paper Banner - Starring Elvis Presley - 80 Inches in Length!
