Elvis plays nightclub singer Rusty Wells in this beach party musical set in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Rusty is tasked with keeping an eye on a Chicago club owner’s daughter, played by Shelley Fabares, the first of three films in which she co-stars with Elvis. This fun, high-energy beach bash won the fourth-place Laurel Award for Top Musical of 1965. Contrary to the light, amusing escapades, the characters on the poster are depicted in a darker, more serious tone. This bold, colorful Turkish poster promoting Elvis Presley’s 1965 film Girl Happy features stars clothed in primary colors against a dark background with bright yellow letters making this poster visually striking. The black and deep red colors add a level of intensity not seen in the various US posters for the film. Foreign posters of the era are known for their unusual and arresting art, and the offered Turkish example is no exception. An excellent example of the variety of artwork available in foreign movie posters promoting Elvis’ films. The poster measures 39 1/2 by 27 3/4 inches (100.33 x 70.48 cm), is stored rolled and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster benefits from linen backing, as well as color touches and light paper fill in the areas of the original factory folds. Apparent Near Mint on linen.
