I'm in the finishing stages of a book about the promotional material that was produced around the world for Elvis Presley's first 4 movies.
The book, which will be published later this year by FTD, contains circa 2200 images of posters, lobby cards, standees, pressbooks, stills, heralds, etc. on 490 pages.
The Australian posters and daybills will of course also be presented in the book and I was hoping to get some help with completing the Aussie entries.
What I have of the first 4 films, is the following:
Love Me Tender: 1-sheet, daybill
Loving You: daybill (only in low resolution)
Jailhouse Rock: 1-sheet, daybill (first issue), daybill (60's re-issue, in 3 color variations), glass slide
King Creole: 1-sheet (only in low resolution), daybill (first issue in two variations, with and without age rating)
If anybody is able and willing to share missing posters (and other material not mentioned above), I would appreciate that very much!
Also upgrades of the items I only have in low resolution are very welcome. As are vintage newspaper advertisements for the screenings of these movies in Australia.
And if any of the experts here is able to narrow the dates of the re-runs of these movies in the 60's/70's down to an exact month and year, that would be fantastic as well.
It goes without saying that any helpful person will be credited in the book. Thanks!
