    Description

    Jailhouse Rock (MGM, 1957). Folded, Fine/Very Fine. Six Sheet (80.5" X 79"). Bradshaw Crandell Artwork.
    Elvis Presley, the undisputed King of Rock n Roll was cast in this tale of a young man who serves time for manslaughter, gets out of jail and decides to take up the guitar. When he becomes a huge sensation, his past comes back to haunt him. Elvis was in his absolute prime when this film was made and captures the style and sound that made him world famous. This poster is considered the best image of any Elvis film and in this large format -- it's absolutely breath-taking. Indications of usage include fold wear and separations, pinholes, and tears. Also apparent is some staining as well as small paper lifts and chips. Some of the chips have splices attached to the verso with paper tape. There are several strips of cellophane and archival tape on the verso. Put this one up in your clubroom and it will be the conversation starter of them all!


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
