Jailhouse Rock (1957)
This is an original, three-sheet movie poster from 1957 for Jailhouse Rock starring Elvis Presley, Judy Tyler, Mickey Shaughnessy, Dean Jones, Jennifer Holden, and Anne Neyland. Richard Thorpe directed the classic musical. Bradshaw Crandell is the artist for the poster.
The poster measures 41" x 81" and has been linen-backed for long-term preservation and display. The poster was in very good condition prior to linen-backing with some wear along some of the fold lines and an extra, vertical crease at the bottom-center of the poster. It was originally printed in two sections designed to overlap (it is now in one section on linen) and there's a small bit of tape residue above the O in Jailhouse from the sections being attached for theatrical display.
The poster was backed in the European style with no touch ups or restoration (as some collectors prefer). Any remaining defects could easily be fixed by a restorer if the new owner prefers. Linen-backed posters are stored flat and rolled for shipping in a rigid, tube mailer.
Please look closely at the photos (this is the exact poster you are buying). It is not cropped or a stock image.
This extremely rare and collectible poster, printed in 1957 to promote the theatrical release of Jailhouse Rock, is not a reproduction or a reprint.
