Fists and Tears was the title MGM gave Elvis Presley’s 1963 film It Happened at the World’s Fair when distributing in Spain. The title is apropos of some of the action that dominates the movie as well as this poster, with its central image of Elvis delivering a haymaker. The illustration style of this Spanish poster was used on many foreign posters of the period, and it’s left us with a beautiful promotional relic from Elvis’ movie career. The poster measures 29 by 27 inches (73.66 x 68.58 cm), is framed to dimensions of 32 by 30 inches (81.28 x 76.2 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Please note: The poster size is 39 by 27 inches (99.06 x 68.58 cm) and is framed to dimensions of 41 1/2 by 29 1/2 inches (105.41 x 74.93 cm).
The poster exhibits few defects, but does have some additional creasing near the original factory folds. Clean with bright colors. Excellent to Mint condition.
