In his 1960 role as Pacer Burton in the movie Flaming Star, Elvis stars opposite Barbara Eden in his critically acclaimed best acting performance. After his film G.I. Blues, Elvis desired to be viewed as a serious actor so he reduced the number of songs in the film from the already small number of four to only two. Released in December of 1960 by 20th Century Fox, just a month after the release of G.I. Blues, Flaming Star was not received with the success at the box office that G.I. Blues enjoyed. Flaming Star is the story of a rancher (Pacer Burton), whose mother is Kiowa and father is Texan, caught in a battle between two cultures and his loyalty to each. Offered is a promotional collection for the film that includes an incredibly serious and somber French “petit” movie poster for the film that has Elvis in shadow, standing with his back to the audience, and a tribe of Native Americans on horseback approaching over the hill. The painterly effect of this visually stunning image captures the high drama enacted in the movie. The poster measures 16 3/4 by 21 inches (43 x 53 cm) and comes with a color transparency and fifteen (15) film stills and photos that each measure 8 by 10 inches (20.32 x 25.4 cm). The group is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The color transparency and photos are in Near Mint condition. The French poster has several areas of wrinkling, chipping and minor paper loss along its borders. Very Good to Excellent condition.
Promotional Collection for Elvis Presley’s 1960 Film <em>Flaming Star</em> Including French Petit Movie Poster, 8 x 10 Color Transparency and Photos (15)
