Rarely seen, this 1960 poster differs from the original poster only in that it uses simply two colors to achieve its effect. Nearly identical in artwork, the various elements are shifted only slightly in position to accommodate the large new headline “Special ‘WELCOME BACK’ Showing By Request!’” The film’s 1960 rerelease was to celebrate Elvis’ return from his military service in March of that year. Fans had waited nearly two years since the release of King Creole to see the young star on the big screen. G.I. Blues wouldn’t hit theaters until November 1960, so the screaming millions were only too happy to go back for another viewing of Elvis’ 1957 tour de force Jailhouse Rock. The lower right border shows the number “3SH. Jailhouse Rock No. 3 57/533.” An impressive and rare display piece from those heady, happy days when Elvis finally came home. The poster, which is stored folded, measures approximately 81 by 41 inches (205.74 by 104.14 cm) when assembled and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster presents with several tears along the original factory folds and areas of paper loss on the edges and at the factory folds. There is some age-related toning and minor stains. Excellent condition.
