    Description

    King Creole (Paramount, 1958). Rolled, Fine/Very Fine. Poster (40" X 60") Style Y.
    Considered by many to be Elvis' finest film, it certainly had the best pedigree when it came to directors (Michael Curtiz, of Casablanca fame). It was also the King's last black-and-white movie, and was the film he needed an extension to complete before being inducted into the U.S. Army. Elvis plays Danny Fisher, an aspiring singer who runs afoul of a local crime boss. This gorgeous poster is the only full color U.S. poster format known from the film in its original release, as all others were printed in orange and black! Never offered by Heritage before, this very rare 40" X 60" poster format, one of two known copies, has mild edge wear, some creases, pinholes, and small tears. Also present are soft surface scuffs, minor paper lifts, and mostly unobtrusive stains and smudges. There is a tear at the bottom into the lower background that has been repaired with a piece of paper tape on the verso, and the poster has grease pencil markings in the upper and lower borders covering some of the printed text.
