DescriptionJailhouse Rock (MGM, 1957). Very Fine-. Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). Bradshaw Crandell Artwork.
Young and still a little dangerous, Elvis Presley gyrates with energy and undeniable charisma in this, one of his best films. Tossed in the clink after he accidentally kills a man while defending the honor of a lady, Presley 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. This dynamite complete lobby card set has it all, with "The King" fightin', lovin', strummin', dancin', swimmin', charmin', and of course, singin'! All of the cards in this scarce set appear very nicely other than the cards #3 and #6, which show pinholes in the corners and a bit more wear. The title card has a bit of ink smudging but does not detract greatly.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
