DescriptionJailhouse Rock (MGM, 1957). One Sheet (27" X 41") Bradshaw Crandell Artwork.
There were three defining films in the 1950s for anyone under 21: Marlon Brando in The Wild One, James Dean in Rebel without a Cause and Jailhouse Rock, Elvis Presley's best all around film. Impossibly young and still a little dangerous, swivel-hipped Elvis fairly bristles with energy and youthful enthusiasm in this film. Thrown in the clink after he accidentally kills a man while defending the honor of a lady, he strikes up a friendship with another con (Mickey Shaughnessy) who urges him to perform in the prison talent show. Alas, post-prison success goes to the King's head, but it all works out for the best in the end. Memorable tunes include "Don't Leave Me Now," "You're So Square," and of course the title tune. Elvis Presley refused to watch the film due to co-star Judy Tyler's tragic accidental death before the film's release. Particularly memorable is the dynamic jailhouse performance of the title song. Perhaps Elvis was inspired by the presence of Gene Kelly on the set that day. Featuring an iconic image by Bradshaw Crandell, this poster has been touched up to address slight fold wear, pinholes in the border, a couple of minor tears, and a few small chips in the borders and folds. There were two vertical creases in the upper background and a small bit of surface wear in Elvis' face. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
