“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 on stage wearing the famous Mexican Sundial white jumpsuit from 1977. The shot probably comes whilst Elvis was performing to a sell out 12,000 crowd in Charlotte, North Carolina. This rare example presents and displays to excellent effect being originally flat / unfolded. The unposed, candid photograph artwork is a lovely live action stage shot from the final year (1977) Elvis toured & performed in public. A poignant image that represents a fine example of very desirable and collectible original music / movie / Elvis memorabilia.
Trivia: At the time of its release the film included lots of very rare and never-before-seen footage of Elvis Presley
