“This is the sound he created and performed. The rare personal films never before seen by the public. The private moments. The public triumphs. Intimate memories and reflections in his own words.”
An original 1981 Italian photobusta movie poster for the 1981 film “This is Elvis” featuring Andy Warhol style border art of a pixelated black & white Elvis with the main panel imagery showing Elvis performing for the NBC TV Special in the 1968 ‘Comeback Tour’ wearing perhaps one of his most famous outfits; the slick, black leather jacket. The success of the TV show led to Elvis’ return to the music charts with Suspicious Minds and The Wonder of You, record-breaking shows in Las Vegas and sell-out tours.This rare example presents and displays to excellent effect being originally flat / unfolded. The live action photograph artwork makes for one of the more memorable Elvis Presley posters. A cool, great looking image that represents a fine example of very desirable and collectible original music / movie / Elvis memorabilia.
