Wild in the Country, a film based on the 1958 novel "The Lost Country" by J.R. Salamanca, was Elvis’ most dramatic role to date and truly showcased his potential as a serious actor. In this film, Elvis portrays Glenn Tyler, a Southern man from a troubled family who aspires to be a writer. However, among moviegoers and fans, Elvis’ fun and sexy musical roles were more popular, so his career took a swing back to the formulaic Elvis movies after Wild in the Country. The offered contact sheet, printed on photographic paper, captures 20 different images from the opening scene of Elvis Presley's 1961 film Wild in the Country. These images were taken during filming--they depict images from scenes of the film during filming and also moments between periods of filming when the actors are setting up the blocking of the shots. Unusually, this contact sheet was printed at 11 by 14 inches, much larger than the usual 8 by 10 inch size most photographers would normally use. The result is a wonderful artifact from Elvis' film career. The sheet measures 11 by 14 inches (27.94 x 35.56 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The contact sheet suffers from a number of defects including edge wear and two creases from being stored folded at one point. Excellent condition overall.
Oversized Contact Sheet of 20 35mm Photos of Elvis Presleys Fight Scene from the Opening Scene of <em>Wild in the Country</em>
