Offered is a rarely seen movie theatre die-cut lobby standee for Elvis Presley's 1963 film It Happened at The World's Fair. Directed by Norman Taurog, the movie stars Elvis in his typical winning formula role. This entertaining adventure tells the story of crop duster Mike Edwards (Elvis) searching for love and adventure while trying to get his plane out of hock thanks to his partner’s gambling debts. The film contains a scene in which Elvis’ character is scheming to win the adoration of his nurse love interest by soliciting a young boy to kick him in the shin. This well-known scene was the debut role of actor Kurt Russell!

These displays were created by using the 40 x 60 inch posters for the film that would be mounted to heavier cardboard and die-cut to create a dynamic shape. The display still maintains its original string and circle display attachments on the reverse. These would be used to attach the display to a standee skeleton that the theatre owner would have in place to use for these pieces as they came in for each new film. The display measures 32 1/2 x 59 inches and presents with some edge wear, scuffing and creases at the lower corners. Color is bold and bright. Excellent to Mint condition.
