"King Creole" (1958)
Hello, Pulp Friends,
to tribute the 75th birthday of the man who defined (and maybe created) the word "rockstar", I decided this morning to do a little noir movie poster of one of my favorite Elvis Presley's movies, "King Creole", from 1958.
I love this movie not just becuase of Elvis' starring, but also because of the settings (New Orleans, I city and its music I dearly love), the B/W noir feel of it, and the Casablanca director Michael Curtiz.
Click on the image for bigger poster.
To add to the celebrations, on my sketchblog I also posted a commission from (ommy) 5 ys ago.
Happy Birthday, Elvis :)
