In this 1965 MGM musical comedy, Elvis plays a band member, Rusty Wells, hired by a Chicago mobster and club owner to watch over his daughter on spring break in Florida. Rusty struggles to keep said daughter Valerie, played by Shelley Fabares, out of trouble while getting into plenty of his own. Promoted as a beach party film, most of the filming was conducted at the MGM studios, yet the bikini-clad girls on the offered larger-than-life poster give it that waterfront flair. Winning a Laurel Award for Top Musical of 1965, Girl Happy is fun, high-energy musical romantic comedy that perfectly executes the successful Elvis film formula. This bright yellow, colorful and lively poster features Elvis as he “makes the beach a ball! and she’s the bounce.” Co-stars Shelley Fabares, Gary Crosby, Nita Talbot and the rest are all listed on this six-sheet poster along with Elvis. The poster measures approximately 81 by 81 inches (205.74 by 205.74 cm), when assembled, and is stored folded. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster presents with few noticeable defects. NM condition.
