In the 1965 MGM musical comedy Girl Happy, Elvis plays nightclub singer Rusty Wells who is tasked with keeping an eye on a Chicago mobster and club owner’s daughter. While Rusty struggles to keep the daughter, Valerie, out of trouble, he manages to get into plenty of his own. This fun, high-energy beach bash won the fourth place Laurel Award for Top Musical of 1965. This bright yellow, colorful and lively one-sheet poster features Elvis as he “jumps with the campus crowd to make the beach ‘ball’ bounce!!!” The film’s co-stars Shelley Fabares, Gary Crosby, Nita Talbot are all listed on the one-sheet along with Elvis. Despite being a beach party musical comedy set in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, most of the filming was conducted at the MGM studios, but the bikini-clad girls on the poster certainly give it that authentic beach vibe. The poster measures 41 by 27 inches (104.14 x 68.58 cm), is stored rolled and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster presents with bold, bright colors, but does exhibit several areas of staining which affect the artwork, as well as minor edge wear, minor wrinkling and very small separations at the original factory folds. Excellent condition overall.
