This stunning Romanian poster promoting Elvis Presley’s 1965 film Girl Happy features incredible artwork. The black and deep red colors add a level of intensity not seen in the various U.S. posters for the film. Co-star Shelley Fabares is captured in the middle of a frenetic dance move, giving the whole presentation a chaotic, but fun, feel. European posters of the era are known for their unusual and arresting art, and the offered Romanian promotional piece is no exception. The metal plaque on the bottom of the frame reads “Girl Happy.” The poster measures 27 by 19 inches (68.58 x 48.26 cm), is framed to dimensions of 30 by 22 inches (76.2 x 55.88 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
The poster exhibits several small scuffs and some mild wear along the fold lines, but the colors remain bold. Excellent to Mint condition.
