Speedway stars Elvis as Steve Grayson, a racecar driver whose financial mismanagement has led him to trouble with the IRS. Nancy Sinatra plays Susan Jacks, the IRS agent tasked to recover the debt who becomes Steve’s romantic interest. Significantly, Nancy Sinatra performed the only song to be featured on one of Elvis’ soundtracks. Fittingly, NASCAR star Richard Petty—also known as “The King”—as well as Cale Yarborough make appearances in the movie. The offered one sheet poster is certainly a product of its era, presenting a highly stylized illustration of co-stars Presley and Sinatra (in her walking boots) mid-dance. The pair is described as “Torrid together… singing… dancing… turning on the romance… as they make the speed-scene at the famed furious ‘Charlotte 600’!” It’s truly a classic “smooth, fast and in high gear” poster created for one of Elvis’ most beloved films. The poster measures 41 by 27 inches (104.14 x 68.58 cm), is stored rolled and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The poster presents very cleanly, with several pin holes and one small tear along the left border. Near Mint condition overall.
