Viva Las Vegas is considered by many to be one of Elvis’ best films, highlighted by legendary songs and the natural chemistry between the two stars, Elvis and Ann-Margret. Elvis plays Lucky Jackson, who heads to Las Vegas to win the Grand Prix. In the process of raising the money he needs to repair his race car, he crosses paths with Rusty Martin, the swimming instructor played by Ann-Margret. The movie was a box office hit and one of the top-grossing films of 1964. Perhaps the success was due to the allure of the stars, the fun, fast-paced plot, the promotion and marketing of the film, or a combination of all three. Offered is a handsome display that captures the dazzling excitement of the film, with the Viva Las Vegas soundtrack 45 white interior record sleeve signed in black ink on the upper right “Thanks Elvis Presley” taking center focus. The white interior signed sleeve sits adjacent to the full color picture sleeve, and the pair are framed on two corners with a flourish of playing cards. The 45 sleeves are flanked above and below by two lobby cards from the film: the top features Ann-Margret with the title “Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret make with a wicked watusi to ‘C’mon Everybody’” and the bottom lobby card shows Elvis wearing a cowboy hat with the caption “A Las Vegas nightclub shakes and quakes when ‘go-go’ Elvis Presley lets loose with a number.” Each section is matted in peach, adding a colorful flair to the display. The film itself was anything but short on color and this bold display perfectly reflects that vibrant vibe. This wonderfully framed artifact from the Elvis movie that always ranks near the top of fans’ lists measures 37 by 20 inches (93.98 x 50.8 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The signed record sleeve is in good condition with a strong, dark signature in black on a white sleeve. The lobby cards are in good condition with corner holes in the top lobby card and white tape evident in the lower right corner of the bottom lobby card in the display.
