    Viva Las Vegas 60th Anniversary

    The year was 1964. A 28 year-old Elvis Presley had already cranked-out more than a dozen fairly forgettable films, but then came Viva Las Vegas! Paired with 22 year-old rising star Ann-Margret, their on screen (and off-screen!) chemistry was incendiary, translating into box office gold! Shot in saturated, eye-popping Metrocolor, it featured a winning combination - catchy tunes, a glimpse of a glamorous, glittering early 1960s Las Vegas replete with showgirls from the Folies Bergere, and most significantly, two sensual, charismatic lead actors. Despite a razor-thin plot, Viva Las Vegas went on to become Elvis' most commercially successful film. Basically, a rock 'n' roll musical with car racing thrown in, the story follows the competition between two race car drivers who also compete for the same girl. Wanna place a wager on who wins?? No need to gamble! Brightly colored wiggle dresses, form-fitting maillots, knit tops paired with tights and kitten heels or stilettos, men's narrow shawl collared sharkskin suits, flat front trousers and skinny ties are all sure things!

    Visited it once and couldn't get out fast enough.

    Great vintage poster though, thanks for posting.

    @Brian Boru , the movie poster is setting the stage for this week's themed parade, where VFG members post vintage clothing, jewelry, or accessories that fit the theme of the week.

    A new theme is started every Sunday. It is fun to see various interpretations!
