The offered acetate with three radio commercials was produced by Thaddeus Suski Productions (for United Artists) to promote Elvis Presley's 1962 film Follow that Dream. The commercials come in two lengths, 60 and 20 seconds, and focus on the film's comedic nature, touting it as a film for the whole family. In contrast to the previous lot, where the radio spots focused on Elvis' singing, the studio must have thought they should try to appeal with a family-friendly message to increase ticket sales. These “Radio Spot” LPs are very tough to find (and we have rarely seen an acetate!) as most of them were not archived by radio stations, but simply destroyed after the film's run. The record measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. 



Condition: VG with some scuffing and minor scratches. Playable condition.
