Vintage, original 'Rock Around the World', Tommy Steele, 1957 film poster

'Rock around the World' is a 1957 British Rock n'Roll film directed by Gerard Bryant and starring Tommy Steele, which was released in the UK as 'The Tommy Steele Story', and is the story of the early life and rise to fame of Tommy Steele. His manager wanted him to be a tough rock'n'roller and so challenge Elvis Presley, but Tommy is too nice! He becomes famous anyway !!

This original poster is a US Insert, measuring 14 x 36", and is paper backed to reduce folds and strengthen, ready for framing. Inserts were printed on a heavier stock of paper.

Rock around the World was in very good condition before backing and cleaning. The poster was folded before backing, and fold marks are slightly visible. There is a small smudge in the blue panel at the bottom of the poster. The film poster presents very well, and is ready for framing.  

All our film posters are original, and most have been used in cinemas. This means that they may show signs of use, including fading, creasing, holes and staining. We endeavor to list these if they are significant, but there may be minor, age -related wear that is not detailed. Posters from this era were printed onto cheap, thin paper, which over time can become brittle and discolored. Folding the paper caused further damage, and the posters may have split along the fold lines, along with damage caused by tape and drawing pin holes. During the linen backing process, the poster is cleaned to remove dirt and marks, where possible, and de-acidified to neutralize the paper and prevent further decay. The poster is pasted onto a layer of Masa paper and linen fabric, which flattens it, fixes tears, prevents further damage and brings the wonderful artwork back to life.  

The poster will be mailed rolled in a cardboard tube.
