Fans Dig El's Screen Debut !!!

Mon Sep 02, 2013 10:06 pm

A couple of cool pics I found on the net related to "Love Me Tender".

The first one is from eBay, and has watermarks all over it. Also, the image is doctored as some of the lettering on the poster has been erased - bizarre ! But it's still a nice pic, I think :

The second one is from some blog I can't remember and was captioned as : "This teen suffered some anguish and could not bear to look at the screen when her idol, Elvis Presley, dies in his first movie, Love Me Tender, December, 1956". Note Elvis' name written on the girls' trousers :

Thanks, Bob.

I can see this one misses those letters too. Did those gals take away nearly every "E" on the poster ? How did they do it ? :shock:

Can't help you with the missing 'E'. But here's another one from a bit different angle:

On July 2, 1956, while Elvis was in New York at one of his greatest recording sessions ever, the "St. Petersburg Times" made a brief mention about a Hal Wallis movie project that supposedly linked Elvis to Shirley MacLaine. Never heard this one before !
