I purchased this signed Paramount Pictures Cafe Continental Menu signed by Elvis Presley from Mr. Kent Hoffine. There is a small insert that went over where Elvis signed hit that offered the luncheon specials for the day.
Mr. Hoffine received the menu from his father-in-law in the mid 1980’s in lieu of rent since he was staying with his daughter and son- in-law.
His daughter’s friend was going through his mother’s home after her passing. The menu was given to his father -in-law, then in turn to Mr. Hoffine.
The signature is signed in blue ink on the inside cover of the menu “To Elma My Best Elvis Presley”. Elvis was filming his second film “Loving You” on the Paramount lots in 1957 where it was obviously signed. The promotional “See The Ten Commandments” was a Paramount Pictures release in 1956 and ran into 1957.
In regards to the analysis of this signature it is that of Mr. Presley without question and is of the time period of 1957 based on the distinctive character of the signature. Mr. Presley signature would vary through the years and this one is consistent with this time period. Plus the fact that it is written on a Paramount Pictures Cafe Continental Menu and promoting “The Ten Commandments” that was released by Paramount at that time.
Mr. Rich Consola, expert on Presley signatures viewed the menu and has authenticated it as signed by Elvis Presley. Mr. Consola also agrees with my findings that the inscription “To Emma” was added after he signed the piece.
My background stems from the fact I am foremost a Elvis Presley fan dating back to 1962 and since, this passion has flourished to my own company EP Memorabilia dealing with related personal effects selling world wide since 1990 (please refer to bio and articles I have written on above subject manner). Many of my pieces include autographs from Mr. Presley which have made me quit familiar with his handwriting.
