Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
Viva Las Vegas is considered by many to be one of Elvis' best films, highlighted by legendary songs and the natural chemistry between its two stars, Elvis and Ann-Margret. Elvis plays Lucky Jackson, who heads to Las Vegas to win the Grand Prix. In the process of raising the money he needs to repair his racecar, he crosses paths with Rusty Martin, a swimming instructor played by Ann-Margret. The fast-paced, twisted plot makes for a fun ride for the audience. The offered U.S. three-sheet poster brings every bit of the film's energy and star power to life, with Elvis and Ann-Margret featured nearly life-sized in the midst of one of their legendary dance scenes. The small plaque on the bottom of the beautiful framed display reads (somewhat superfluously considering the film's title is nearly a foot tall just above on the poster!) "Viva Las Vegas Movie Poster U.S. Three Sheet." An incredible showpiece. The framed display measures 85 by 45 inches (215.9 x 114.3cm), and the poster measures 81 by 41 inches (205.74 x 104.14 cm). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Condition Report: The moderate professional restorationâincluding color touches, small repairs and linen backingâhave left this poster in a wonderful and impressive state. Apparent Near Mint condition.
