Looking around the web at specialist sites it would seem that this is the original. I have it listed as Double Crown 20"x30" (not sure what this means but it was given as part of the description by the site selling it)

Thank you to everyone for your help in putting together the UK film posters. You made very quick work of it.
There are only 3 films without posters now - Loving You; Live A Little Love A Little; Change Of Habit.
You can find all the pics at http://www.elvisstuff.co.uk/filmposters/ It's very basic but I wanted to get it up asap. I'll add more artwork as I come across it and hopefully get up pics of the lobby cards, FOH sets and pressbooks. Any more help would be greatly appreciated but I can't thank you guys enough. It was only 24hrs since my original request.

you are very welcome to my additions and I hope the Kissin Cousins is correct as I have it as the British one.

This is the UK advance poster for Loving You.

And if you want to, you can check our site for the Loving You topic that includes lots of worldwide movie posters:

That is indeed the right name for this size poster. Please see this page of the UK campaign book for Love Me Tender:

The ABC Easy Come Easy Go poster.


No wonder ABC produced their own poster for this film - the UK one in blue, black and white was really unnapealing. I would love to have a copy of this.
The 2001 "TTWII Special Edition" poster is already quite scarce. I have seen it advertised for £150 or more! :shock:

Great to see these fabulous posters again. I can remember standing outside my local cinemas staring at these gems. Thanks to all for posting.
Not too sure there will be a poster for Change Of Habit as it wasn't given a UK cinema release.

I have always thought the same about Live a Little Love a Little, it did not have a cinema release in Britain.

If you have it as the British one you are probably correct. I only queried it because of the spelling of colour however all the British posters have the same spelling which leads me to suggest that it's probably a trademark or company name.

If there are no British film posters for Live A Little Love A Little or Change Of Habit then the only poster that is missing is Loving You. Does anyone have a scan of this that they are willing to share? I can't find one online.

Re: Looking for info on UK film posters

I will have a search tonight for you. I have a scan of it here somewhere in my disorganised folders.

Here you go discking, Loving You Quad, this one is rare. That's the way it is,different quad due to ELVIS being shown in white instead of the standard yellow.

Disking, thought this post i placed a while back might interest you as you showed an interest in front of house lobby cards http://www.elvis-collectors.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=59629

Pacer, do you think there is a poster for Live a little love a little ? I believe there is not. The showing of the film at the 1978 convention in Leicester was the first showing in the UK, from memory.....
