    Description

    Love Me Tender (20th Century Fox, 1956). Poster (40" X 60") Style Y.
    It's been over a decade since Heritage has offered up a 40" X 60" for this classic Elvis Presley flick, and never before have we offered this very rare style Y poster. Elvis had just become a major recording artist when he was cast in this, his first film. The story was actually about Richard Egan's character Vance Reno, but due to Elvis' strong personality and rising fame, the studio quickly tailored all of the posters and ad campaign to make it appear that Elvis was the star. It worked, as the film's production budget was recouped in the first three days of the film's release. Professional restoration has addressed creasing, moderate tears, and vertical folds along the side borders. There were some horizontal surface cuts towards the top and bottom of the poster, one of which was in Elvis' shoulder and neck. The poster also had some paper loss in the upper border and background. All of the borders and the upper right background have been airbrushed. Fine+ on Linen.
