This insert card promotes Elvis’ 20th movie Frankie And Johnny.
Elvis’ version of this classical story is a remake of the original film from 1936. Reportedly, the story of Frankie and Johnny is based on an incident that happened in St. Louis, where in 1899 the prostitute
Frankie Baker shot her lover and procurer Al ‘Johnny’ Britt after she noticed him, dating another woman. This story varies from source to source in some details. Frankie And Johnny
was nominated for the Golden Laurel Award in the category musical, but finally came in fourth. Like other movie posters, this insert card was presented in the lobbys or outside of the theatres.
It’s made of heavy paper, almost like cardboard and measures 14 x 36”.
Value: 100 - 140 US$
