    Elvis Presley Framed Photo Inscribed to George Klein (1958). Elvis never looked more like the King of Rock and Roll than during his Jailhouse Rock period, and this promotional photo was taken during the filming of that most classic of Presley films. We've never seen another autographed copy, which increases the "Wow!" factor of an already desirable treasure! But that's not all! The inscription is to Elvis' lifelong friend, George Klein, who had received the photo from MGM Studios in 1957, then had Presley sign it the night before he departed for service in the US Army on March 24, 1958. The oversized 10" x 12" is in stunning color, and Elvis' inscription is personal and playful, beginning "DJ uh..." mimicking Klein's own signature radio salutation, "This is DJ...uh, GK...". Klein had it in his personal collection more than 40 years. The photo is professionally mounted on a backing board, and professionally matted and framed to an overall size of 17" x 20". Comes with a handwritten letter of provenance from Klein, dated July 18, 2000. Requires third party shipping.
