This Belgian poster promoted Elvis Presley’s 1966 film Paradise, Hawaiian Style, his second to be set in the islands. The offered poster utilizes an illustration found on several other posters from around the globe for the film, but it is executed with a tremendous amount of detail and an intense amount of saturated color. The result is an impressive example of an Elvis poster from the European market. Importantly for collectors, the phrase “Impr. J. Lichtert & Fils - Bruxelles 7” appears printed on the lower right of the bottom border—later Belgian reprints often have these phrases printed in English. The poster is stored flat, measures 22 by 14 inches (55.88 x 35.56 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
The poster presents with few defects. There is a small stain on the extreme edge of the left side and one large fold line running diagonally on the right side. Excellent to Near Mint condition.
