From the Trude Forsher Collection

The offered group of promotional photos are all file copies directly from the Trude Forsher archive, and present in superior condition. There are five 8 by 10 inch (20.32 x 25.4 cm) photos promoting several films including Love Me Tender, Loving You, Jailhouse Rock and King Creole. Several have back stampings or captions on the reverse referencing the film they are promoting. There are also two 7 by 5 inch (17.78 x 12.7 cm) photos, one with a facsimile inscription reading “Sincerely Elvis Presley” and one “Moss Photo Service” that reads “Best Wishes Elvis Presley.” There are four smaller Moss photos, measuring 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches (8.89 x 6.35 cm), including one promoting King Creole and one tougher-to-find “RCA VICTOR Recording Artist” photo. Also included with this collection are two interesting letters from Colonel Tom Parker to Trude Forsher and the Forsher family, both of which were sent with photos, as stated in the text. Both letters, one on MGM letterhead and the other on a generic “Memo” letterhead, measure 11 by 8 1/2 inches (27.94 x 21.59 cm). This group was well-preserved in the file cabinets of All-Star Shows’ West Coast secretary and promotions coordinator, and includes many harder-to-find and highly sought-after promotional photos. The group is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

While the letters are slightly toned, the photos are free of distresses and present in stunning Near Mint to Mint condition.
