Description

    King Creole (Paramount, 1958). Three Sheet (41" X 81"). If you're a fan of the King - and who isn't? - this poster is for you! In this early Elvis film (he only had three other movies to his credit before this one), Presley plays a high school dropout who gets a job as a singer in a saloon. Trouble follows, however, in the form of gangsters and girls, as well as a fistfight between Elvis and Walter Matthau. Along with "Jailhouse Rock," many consider this to be one of Presley's finest films. The striking three sheet offered here, which features the same artwork as used on the one sheet, perfectly captures the spirit of the young Elvis: brash, confident, and infinitely talented. The separate pieces of this poster have been put together, and it shows enlarged pinholes in the corners, light edgewear, a small smudge at the bottom center, some staple holes in the field, and some creasing at the bottom right. Additionally, there is a corner bend in the bottom right and some crossfold separation, as well as a 2" tear in the right border and a small area of paper loss at the right edge, just inside the border. These flaws do little to diminish the overall appeal of this poster, which remains a highly desirable piece. Fine+.
