Follow That Dream is a musical comedy based on the book Pioneer, Go Home! Elvis plays Toby Kwimper in the film, which follows the misadventures of a wayward family attempting to establish roots on a roadside in Florida. The movie reached number five on the box office chart and remained there for several weeks, becoming the 33rd top-grossing film of 1962. The offered French "grande" movie poster presents an interesting illustration that truly captures the spirit of the film. In the large, French one-panel format Elvis dominates the scene, sitting on a crate of dynamite, no less! This is an impressive, oversized poster, beautifully framed with a small plaque that reads "Follow That Dream France 'Grande'." The entire display measures 66 by 50 inches (167.64 x 127 cm) and the poster measures 63 by 47 inches (160.02 x 119.38 cm). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
