Lot 97: 1964 Viva Las Vegas One-Sheet Movie Poster - Starring Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret
October 29, 2016
Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
It's a scene that captured Elvis at the peak of his powers, with all of his talents on display for the big screen audience, where he's finally paired with a star who everyone on set considered to be his almost-perfect match in intensity and larger-than-life persona: Ann-Margret. They move across the recently christened University of Nevada gymnasium stage with wild abandon as Elvis sings "C'mon Everybody." The two work themselves up, over and around to the point where they finish in a heap on the stage floor. The offered U.S. one-sheet presents our stars in that iconic scene, doing what they do best, and we would expect nothing less when "It's that 'go-go' guy and that 'bye-bye' gal in the fun capital of the world!" This is a must-have for any serious Elvis collection. The poster measures 41 by 27 inches (104.14 x 68.58 cm). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Condition Report: The poster has been linen-backed and benefited from multiple color touches along the original factory folds and several other areas. The improvements have left the poster in beautiful, apparent Near Mint condition.
