From the Trude Forsher Collection. By the time filming began on Elvis Presley’s fourth film, King Creole, in January 1958, anyone walking by the offered sign on his dressing room door knew they were dealing with a bona fide superstar. Less than two years earlier he was a rising celebrity singer taking a run at acting, but now, with three wildly successful films under his belt, he was a force to be reckoned with on the big screen. The offered sign graced Elvis’ dressing room door on the Paramount lot, and eventually found its way into the file of Trude Forsher, Elvis and the Colonel’s “Girl Friday” and secretary when they were filming in Hollywood. The color may have been intended to approximate gold, and the bold, black lettering reads “ELVIS PRESLEY.” The sign is presented in a large display with an original lobby card and studio-issued promotional photo from the film. At the bottom is a small plaque that reads "ELVIS PRESLEY DRESSING ROOM DOOR SIGN 1958 MOVIE KING CREOLE." The sign measures 3 by 11 1/2 inches and is framed to a size of 31 x 18 inches. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated. The sign shows obvious signed of wear with chipping and some loss at the corners. Excellent condition.
