    The USA sheet 1 – right poster, I have always found very ugly. Elvis did not even look like Elvis. The USA half sheet on the contrary I always found one of the most beautiful film posters. For long I had a reprint hanging in my teen room. The reprint came with the Dutch album Elvis In Hollywood (1980) which was released in cooperation with fanclub president Ger Rijff!

  3. Damn! Was I labeled “President” only?!

    The info ( handed out by RCA?) should have read :
    Ger Rijff, Emperor of the Elvis Presley Fan Universe!

    I do remember the guy from RCA Holland visiting me
    to search for a possible bonus poster to be included
    with the record album. While on Holiday in Memphis,
    I had picked up the LMT half sheet…Like you, Alexander,
    I loved that particular poster a lot…And so did the guy
    from RCA. In Memphis, at the time, I had also bought
    a stack of LMT publicity shots. Remember the Elvis
    sitting down in striped shirt on the set of LMT?
    RCA used it to make a large cardboard ‘standee’ from
    that particular photo. Jeez, the things I did to help
    out RCA during all those years! But in return these
    Dutch guys always treated me with respect…

    R…E…S…P…E…C…T … Sing it out loud Aretha!

      Lets Hail the great Rijfster here, once again please Ger bend over please i have some more feathers for you :-)

      Thanks for the inside story Ger. The music industry has changed quite a bit over the decades that followed. I bet in the Dutch office at Sony there’s not even one ‘product manager’ left to manage a local Elvis catalogue. Times change, fortunately this site can take us back in time. My small vinyl collection and the stories surrounding it are very dear to me.

      I still see a few of the old RCA guys. When Tibor ‘left the building’ it was over and out. Have nice memories of the trips we made to Memphis, Nashville and New York. With ‘T-bone’ beside me all the areas opned… and i mean all!

  4. Thanks, Gerrit.
    Every topic Bob and I put online is for one simple
    reason : we enjoy what we are doing here. And we’re
    getting better all the time. A hell of a difference to
    many Elvis sites who’ve lost every sparkle in presenting
    topics. That is, if they can put together one! Sad. If they
    would look around a little, there’s plenty to learn
    from the guys who have brought quality to the fans
    for years.

    Love Me Tender was based on the real life story of the real RENO BROTHERS who became notorious in American history by doing the First Train Robbery in peace time (after the civil war)….Elvis character was based on one of those brothers called CLINTON RENO who was nicknamed “Honest Clint”and although he was not charged with any of his crimes that his brothers did he could never live as free as he wanted, he died on Sep. 20, 1921……a year before Love Me Tender was made there was another movie on the Reno Brothers called “Rage At Dawn”starring Randolph Scott

    The double crown was reprinted in (i believe) 1978 on quality paper (With “The Asphalt jungle”(Belgian version) on the back side…hope to get my copy next week

    You state that the ‘pink’ quad is a 1960s re-issue, yet lots of dealers are selling it as a 1956 original. Just wondering what your basis for the later date is, please.
