THE COMMERCIAL APPEAL, Memphis, October 23, 1957
* Singer & actor Elvis Presley
* "Jailhouse Rock" movie debut ad (eve)
* Earliest to be had ?
Page 9 has a very interesting advertisement for Elvis Presley's musical drama film, "Jailhouse Rock". This movie debuted in Memphis, Tennessee weeks before it went nationally. This ad is for the day prior of it's World debut in Memphis. Could this be the earliest ad in a newspaper for this film here ? Of course, this ad can only be found in a Memphis paper making it a very rare item. (see) The ad measures 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches.
page 19 has a photo of Elvis with heading: "Charmer Arrives To Help Promote Elvis' New Film"
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 pages, some small binding holes along the spine, minor margin wear, generally nice.
