This Is Elvis



“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 a close up headshot of Elvis mid song looking hot & sweaty. The shot probably comes from 1977 whilst Elvis was on the last leg of his series of (what tuned out to be be his final public performances) concerts. This rare example presents and displays to excellent effect being originally flat / unfolded. The unposed, candid photograph artwork is a lovely close up headshot and makes for one of the more memorable Elvis Presley posters. A cool and 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 

NOTE: Complete set of all 6 x “This is Elvis” Italian photobustas are available at a reduced price for the set.
