From Big House To Space Needle, From The Old West To Todays West: 4 Fascinating Presley Faces.
One of the greatest ways to satisfy a fans inner Elvis is to go to Jailhouse Rock, the 1957 box-office hit thats Elvis "Presleys best film" according to Leonard Maltins Movie Guide.
The King plays Vince Everett, jailed for manslaughter after a bar fight. There, Vince learns to belt out tunes instead of saloon patrons and after being paroled, follows a bumpy road to music and movie success. Six Presley songs by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller spike the story, including Treat Me Nice, I Wanna Be Free and the shimmy-shakin title tune that was Presleys favorite of all his films production numbers. "Its the beast in me," Elvis says after kissing Peggy (Judy Tyler). Yeah, but its the best of him too!
It Happened At The Worlds Fair:
Fun, music and Elvis all happen in this romp boasting one of the best backdrops of any Elvis Presley movie: the 1962 Seattle Worlds Fair, with its showpiece Space Needle, monorail and more.
The King plays pilot-for-hire Mike, whose hope of starting his own flying business is grounded by the gambling of his co-pilot Danny (Gary Lockwood). The guys hitch to Seattle, where Mike finds romance, Danny finds easy marks and both find problems prior to a Happy Ending. Kurt Russell, star of 1979s Elvis biopic, plays the child who wallops Mike in the shins. And among the 10 songs are Im Falling in Love Tonight, Relax and the gold record One Broken Heart for Sale.
Stay Away, Joe:
Just when Navajo rodeo star Joe Lightcloud has it all figured out, his plans go up in smoke. His idea about raising cattle on the reservation is a good one. But you know that great chow Joe and everyone else enjoyed at the community party last night? Turns out somebodys barbecued the herds only bull!
Where Joe goes, trouble follows. And since Elvis Presley portrays amiable Joe, plenty of fun and a couple of tunes (the title track and Dominique) come along too. A talented ensemble of screen veterans joins Presley for this good-time tale filmed in and around Arizonas scenic Sedona. Burgess Meredith is Joes rascally pop, Katy Jurado is his tough-love stepmom and Joan Blondell is the shotgun-toting local aiming to bring Joe to the altar.
Most Elvis Presley movies fit neatly inside a whirlwind formula of girls, songs and who-do-you-love complications. Like its loner title character, the gritty Western Charro! is different.
The Elvis on screen here isnt the clean-cut all-American kid ready to hit the beach or the dance floor. Instead, a barbed stubble covers his face. His hat hangs low over his eyes. And a bandanna hides the ugly scar that marks him as a killer. Written and directed by Charles Marquis Warren (creator of TVs Gunsmoke, Rawhide and The Virginian), this stark sagebrush saga follows an ex-outlaw trying to go straight - but hes got a score to settle when his own gang frames him for a heist.
