The 20th Century Fox 1961 film Wild in the Country was another serious acting role for Elvis Presley following Flaming Star’s more dramatic turn. That being said, the studio insisted that the film include four songs for Elvis, and subsequent to this film his acting took a more musical direction, with a string of films using the Elvis musical formula fans know and love. In this film, Elvis portrays Glenn Tyler, a Southern man from a troubled family who aspires to be a writer. The offered French “grande” movie poster presents an arresting, central illustration of our hero, flanked by his co-stars Hope Lange and Tuesday Weld with the bold red title of “Amour Sauvage” which literally translates to “Wild Love.” The artwork is a huge departure from what we see on the poster’s U.S. counterparts, and its dramatic large size only adds to its impact. The poster measures 63 by 45 1/2 inches (160.02 x 115.57 cm), is stored folded and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster presents with mild toning, areas of paper separations at the original factory folds, some areas of chipping and minor paper loss along the borders and several pieces of tape on the reverse. The darkly colored artwork and title remain colorful and bright. Excellent condition.
