Stay Away, Joe is a Western musical satirical farce in which Elvis plays Joe Lightcloud, a Navajo who convinces his Congressman to allow him to prove that Navajos can successfully raise cattle on the reservation. A series of calamities ensue, leaving Joe to raise money by any means he can. Stay Away, Joe, released by MGM in March 1968, is Elvis’ 26th movie and a departure from his typical musical romantic comedy roles. In this film, Elvis sings only four tunes and plays a rougher, brawling, Native American womanizer. Offered is an ephemera collection from this film that includes: a press kit folder containing eight studio-issued black-and-white publicity photos plus four documents describing “CAST,” “HIGHLIGHTS,” “CAPTIONS” and the film’s “ANNOUNCEMENT STORY,” two color mini lobby cards, a press book and a herald. The press book measures 17 1/4 by 12 3/8 inches (43.82 x 31.43 cm), the mini lobby cards and photos in the press kit each measure 8 by 10 inches (20.32 x 25.4 cm), the press kit folder measures 11 1/2 by 9 inches (29.21 x 22.86 cm), and the herald measures 8 by 3 3/4 inches (20.32 x 9.53 cm). The group is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The photos and mini lobby cards show no defects, while the press book, herald and press kit folder and documents all exhibit mild age toning. The press kit folder has a separation along its spine. Excellent condition, overall.
