Colonel Parker arranged in all contracts with movie-companies - TV & radio stations etc it's forbidden to show stories about Elvis in person - his family - his manager or to use their names in a wide range without permission. This means Coppertone Company have to pay for the use of the name of Elvis in the advertisement. It's no free publicity for the movie GGG but Coppertone used the movie star Stella Stevens for promotion of their products.
It was right without mentioning the name of Elvis because it was no promotion for Elvis.
The name of Elvis is a "sales-product" so you have to pay for it when you use it. Good research by WMA.
By the way: nice find of this advertisement.

Rare 1962 Girls! Girls! Girls! Massive Theater Lobby Display Featuring Elvis Presley.

3A5D6F08-7735-4DFF-88A7-FD80B5FDC0BD.jpeg

From Graceland Auctions:

The offered larger-than-life, original cardboard cutout theater display bears an image similar to the movie poster, but this would have stood in the theater lobby to capture the attention of female and male fans alike.

On the large display, an almost life-size Elvis with guitar is flanked by co-stars Laurel Goodwin and Stella Stevens and touts “The Swingin Est Elvis / The Fastest Movin Fun N Music / World’s Curviest / Girls Girls Girls” appealing to audience-goers of every gender. The standing advertisement also promoted Elvis’ RCA album of the same name, with “13 Tuneful Songs!”

It is unusual for such a mammoth display to survive use, much less the trials of time, and this colorful example is intact, with its paper bottom mimicking the movie poster’s color treatment of stills from the movie, and its original cardboard shipping container bearing a Paramount Pictures label from 1501 Broadway in New York. Based on the addressee, this display was sent to Paramount Film Dist. Corp in Charlotte, North Carolina. When fully erected in the theater lobby, this monumental display would have stood more than 6 feet (182.88 cm) tall!

The display and box have suffered relatively heavy water damage, but fortunately the majority of the impact is on the reverse. While the paper has wrinkled in areas and there is some visible staining on the left and right edges, the front of the display presents relatively cleanly.

It’s not unusual that some European posters are different, and esp. the Italian ones, it seems. But this particular one deserves an award! :-D
