Lot 93: 1963 Fun in Acapulco Three-Sheet Movie Poster in Impressive Framed Display - Starring Elvis Presley
29 October 2016
Memphis, TN, USALive Auction
While filming for this 1963 musical comedy, in which Elvis starred as Mike Windgren, took place on site in Acapulco, Elvis remained in Los Angeles, where all of his scenes were shot in a Hollywood studio. An Elvis double was used to film the shots that had to be done on location, as Elvis was not authorized to be in Mexico because of an earlier misunderstanding involving various Mexican politicians. This massive U.S. three-sheet is beautifully framed and presents our hero, complete with sombrero, dancing above the beach while he has unending Fun in Acapulco! The framed display measures 84 by 44 inches (213.36 x 111.76 cm) 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 poster presents with clean white areas and bright, bold colors in both the artwork and titles. The relevant defects include several areas of staining, most of which affect edge areas, and very small areas of paper separation at the original factory fold intersections. Excellent condition.
