Seattle, Washington was host to the 1962 World’s Fair and the location for the 1963 Elvis film It Happened at the World’s Fair, in which Elvis plays a pilot who is trying to save his plane from being auctioned while falling for a nurse working at the World’s Fair during his adventures. The film made $2.25 million at the box office and as with several Elvis musical films, a soundtrack album was released in conjunction with it, a mere week after the movie’s release on April 3, 1963. The recording of the ten tracks took place at Radio Recorders in Hollywood on August 30 and September 22 in 1962. The soundtrack album of the same title as the movie peaked at number four on the Billboard charts. Offered is a brightly colored record store poster advertising the album’s release. The poster shouts “ELVIS!” in bold red letters above the album’s cover, which is flanked by red, yellow and blue balloons reminiscent of a carnival or fair that create a festive invitation to buy! The poster measures 26 by 12 inches (66.04 x 30.48 cm), is stored flat and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster presents with paper loss along the lower right border, several pin holes, a few small tears, age-related toning and some scratches on the original glossy finish, which is mostly intact. Bold, bright colors. Very Good to Excellent condition.
