The Auction at Graceland•March 4, 2017

The offered one sheet movie poster for Elvis Presley’s 1963 film Fun in Acapulco was most likely created for distribution to military bases—military-issued posters are normally printed with only one or two colors. While they generally use some version of the regular one sheet artwork, the offered poster utilizes part of an advertisement from the film’s press book and some basic block lettering for the title and listing of stars Elvis Presley and Ursula Andress. This is a very unusual example, rarely seen. The poster has been stored folded, measures 41 by 27 inches (104.14 x 68.58 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
The poster presents with few defects, but does have minor paper separation at the original factory folds. Excellent to Mint condition.
