Paramount PIctures Original U.S. Six Sheet Poster (81x81) Linen-Backed Very Fine Plus Condition

Here is one of the most desirable Elvis Presley large format posters! It is the Original Paramount Pictures Six Sheet Poster (81x81) for the Norman Taurog musical comedy, BLUE HAWAII (1961) starring Elvis Presley, Joan Blackman, and Angela Lansbury. Just out of the army, Chad Gates (Presley) is happy to be back in Hawaii with his surfboard, his beach buddies, and his girlfriend. His father wants him to go to work for the family fruit company, but Chad goes to work as a tour guide for his girlfriend's agency instead. The soundtrack is probably Presley's best with the big hit "Can't Help Falling In Love With You." The soundtrack spent 20 consecutive weeks at the #1 spot on Billboard's Top LP Chart in 1961-62 and stayed on the charts for 79 weeks. The beautiful color film acts almost like a travelogue for Hawaii, captured winningly on the widescreen by cinematographer Charles Lang, Jr., one of Paramount's great cameramen. On the poster the title is held within a surfboard-shaped area, surrounded by a beach-party tableau that any Elvis fan would adore. The six sheet poster for this movie has proven itself over the years a difficult poster to acquire. Here it is in near mint condition, expertly linen backed. Beautiful. MovieArt Austin guarantees that this poster is an authentic U.S. six sheet poster for this film. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
