The Auction at Graceland•March 4, 2017
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 3/4/2017
The offered French movie poster for Elvis Presley’s 1965 film, Girl Happy, features a wonderful illustration of our man in his blue velour pullover caught mid-dance step, perhaps distracted by the bevy of surfing beauties all around him. Front and center among the women is co-star Shelley Fabares, though wisely not in a surfing stance due to the lovely pumps she chose to go with her bikini. This was the first of three films in which Fabares co-starred with Elvis. An excellent example of the variety of artwork available in foreign movie posters promoting Elvis’ films. The poster measures 32 by 23 inches (81.28 x 58.42 cm), is framed to dimensions of 35 by 26 inches (88.9 x 66.04 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
The poster exhibits minor edge and corner wear and a small separation near the intersection of the folds. Excellent condition.
