The offered Argentinean movie poster is a wonderful mash up of artwork from several of the U.S. posters that promoted Elvis Presley's 1964 film Roustabout. We see the main shot of Elvis charging forth on his motorcycle from the U.S. half sheet, but with co-star Joan Freeman added as his pasenger. At a slightly larger size than the normal U.S. one sheet, this example from the southern hemisphere delivers a strong marketing punch. The poster measures 43 by 29 inches (109.22 x 73.66 cm) and is framed to overall dimensions of 46 by 32 inches (116.84 x 81.28 cm). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
The poster exhibits several defects, including minor paper loss along the edges, pinholes, and tape stains bleeding through from the reverse. Very Good to Excellent condition.
