These large paper banners would feature silkscreened artwork and abnormally bright, if not downright neon, colors, and this example is no exception. Often referred to as “drive-in banners,” these massive paper promotional posters actually could have been used in any theater lobby. In Paramount Pictures’ 1967 musical comedy entitled Easy Come, Easy Go, Elvis plays Ted Jackson, a former U.S. Navy frogman who splits his time between being a deep-sea diver and night club singer. When Ted finds a sunken treasure and sets out to capture the potential fortune, his plans are foiled, as the movie’s title indicates. The picture was Elvis’ 23rd film and the last one produced by Hal Wallis. At the box office, the film grossed almost as much as was the budget for filming. The banner measures approximately 24 by 80 inches (60.96 x 203.2 cm), is stored rolled and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster presents with bold, neon colors still beaming and the vast majority of the silkscreened ink still intact. Exemplary condition for a poster notorious for condition issues. Several small tears along the edges, some scuffing on the surface and minor chipping. Excellent condition.
