Set in the 1920s, Elvis plays the new manager of a traveling tent show troupe in The Trouble with Girls (and how to get into it). Originally titled Chautauqua, the film rights were sold by MGM to Columbia after several failed screenplays and castings. Columbia sold it back to MGM in 1968 when it too failed to get the project going. In a final attempt, MGM cast Elvis Presley as the lead and the film was made. Released in September of 1969, The Trouble with Girls was one of Elvis’ final acting roles before he relaunched his singing career. The vibrant but simple design of the offered six-sheet poster utilized a large image of a laughing Elvis, set against a bright orange-hued background with large white letters reading “Elvis ‘69” across the top. The bold yet simple statement coupled with the attractive image invites inquiry. This jovial depiction of Elvis was the center of the entire promotional campaign for the film, and it is used to great effect here. 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 some wear to the edges and reverse from storage, but the front's colors remain bold. Excellent to Mint condition.
