This German promotional entry for the 1963 MGM film It Happened at the World's Fair chose to forego the space needle imagery of the U.S. posters and focus squarely on the real drama of most any Elvis film — "Ob blond, ob braun" ("Whether blonde or brunette"). The watercolor-style graphic design is slightly ahead of the American market's sense of film artwork of the period, and presents a very post-war European take on the film icon's interaction with his leading ladies, co-stars Joan O'Brien and Yvonne Craig. A very nice example of the more rarely seen German version of this poster. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. Poster measures approximately 33 by 23 inches (83.82 x 58.42 cm).



This 33 by 23 inch (83.82 x 58.42 cm) poster has suffered several small tears and some minor storage discoloration down the left side, but these defects hardly sully an otherwise beautiful example. Strong colors, only mild toning overall and no separations or paper loss at the factory folds. Very Fine condition.
