The Auction at Graceland•March 4, 2017
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 3/4/2017
The offered Italian movie poster, known as a locandina, promoted the 1964 Elvis Presley film Kissin’ Cousins. The MGM musical comedy picture features Elvis in a double starring role: as dark-haired Air Force lieutenant Josh Morgan, and as his cousin, blond hillbilly Jodie Tatum. The Italian poster has a unique illustration of the two “Elvises” amid a bevy of women and linked by a large, red question mark. A great example of Italian marketing for Elvis. The poster measures 27 by 13 inches (68.58 x 33.02 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
The poster has many wrinkles, but these glossier Italian posters are susceptible to that, and there are several pinholes. There is one area of paper loss in the upper right corner. Very Good condition.
