Lot 65: 1957 Jailhouse Rock Half-Sheet Movie Poster - Elvis Presley's Iconic Third Film
29 October 2016
Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
Jailhouse Rock strayed from the MGM convention of the time, as the story was not based on a successful book or theatrical play. Additionally, the film was not even listed in Variety as one of MGM's planned releases for the year because the original story author, Nedrick Young, had been blacklisted. Despite all this, and because of its young superstar, the film was a massive success and reached #3 in the box office charts. The offered half-sheet presents the same legendary artwork as the film's one-sheet. The smaller-sized poster is often sought out by collectors who want an artifact that's easier to display without sacrificing the iconic visual punch. This is a high-grade example. The poster measures 22 by 28 inches (55.88 x 71.12 cm). Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.
Condition Report: Prior to linen-backing, the poster had been folded. These fold lines have been minimized, and small color touches were added at the intersection. Apparent Near Mint on linen.
