We're all familiar with the movie poster for Elvis' film 'The Trouble With Girls (And How To Get Into It)'.

But, where does the the actual image come from? It doesn't appear to be a publicity/promo shot as it doesn't feature on the popular EPSS site.

It's clearly an unissued shot from the portrait photos in the white suit seen on the EPSS site, taken by MGM's legendary Virgil Apger.

Presley's hair is a match to the ones on the site, if you notice that the poster image is actually reversed.

My pleasure. It's always possible the original image will show up in the future.
