Original Australian daybill. The first screening of Speedway was in Australia (not sure how that came to be) so i guess this was the first poster produced to promote the film.

Thanks for posting the Italian poster of Speedway.

This Nancy Sinatra fan lists 7 alternate Italian posters
Source: https://nancysinatra.com/blog/2011/10/n ... -speedway/

1. This poster employs the image of Nancy and Elvis from U.S. lobby card #1, as well as a color-altered depiction of Nancy from her performance of “Your Groovy Self.”

image.jpeg


2. This composite is derived from Nancy and Elvis’s performance of “There Ain’t Nothing Like A Song” (left) and Nancy’s “Your Groovy Self” solo (right).

image.jpeg


3. Nancy and Elvis embrace as he sings “Who Are You? (Who Am I?)” (left). From the performance of “There Ain’t Nothing Like A Song” (right), the composite presents the same image as U.S. lobby card #5.

image.jpeg


4.With a slightly different pose, the image of Nancy in pink is a variation of the photo which appears on the inlay card of the Nancy [Twelve Ways] CD (pictured left: Sundazed SC 6058).

image.jpeg


5. In another composite, Nancy’s image is derived from the “She’s Gonna Listen” scene with Ross Hagen (see U.S. lobby card #2), while Elvis and Bill Bixby are pictured in Elvis’s “trailer trap.”

image.jpeg


6. The Italian composite variation (framed in yellow) of U.S. lobby card #4 is derived from the “Popular Mechanics” scene. The related card (framed in blue) from the same scene was printed in Great Britain.

7. This A Tutto Gas poster is one of several international posters which feature a non-Speedway image of a bikini-clad Nancy.

Mexican lobby cards

Speedway was Released as A Todo Escape in Mexico.

In the “Cupid’s Bankroll” scene, Bill Bixby warns Nancy about Elvis (Steve): “Well, if I were a girl, I would let the measles in my apartment before I’d let him in.”

image.jpeg


The black and white photo of Nancy, as she sings "till you bring your groovy self on home–to me,” also appears (in a cropped version) on the interior right panel of the gatefold jacket of 1973’s Japanese Nancy Sinatra LP (RCA SX-248).

image.jpeg


Illustrating the film’s finale, the black and white image of Nancy and Elvis is derived from their duet of 'There Ain’t Nothing Like A Song'.

For Speedway’s October 4, 1971 broadcast on NBC, this amusing promotional photo of Nancy (from the “Popular Mechanics” scene) was distributed as part of a September 10, 1971 press release (pictured right):

image.jpeg


“AT-TIRED FOR SLEEP – Susan Jacks (Nancy Sinatra), wearing a race driver’s outfit, manages to catch forty winks while sitting on two large tires in ‘Speedway,’ a comedy set against the background of stock car racing, to be colorcast on ‘NBC Monday Night at the Movies’ Oct. 4 (9-11 p.m. NYT) on the NBC Television Network.”

I really should organise my autograph collection better, can't believe I didn't post this one sooner.
