After playing a small role as a college coed who hooks up with Elvis’ bandmate Jimmy Hawkins while on Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale in Girl Happy (1965), Gail Gerber (as Gail Gilmore) was upped to co-star billing in Harum Scarum (1965) playing one of three dancing gypsies who help the kidnapped singer escape from their Middle Eastern country.

In the below clip, Gail (in yellow) joins Elvis as they “Shake That Tambourine” with help from Brenda Benet (in blue) and Wilda Taylor (in green). Gail writes about working with Elvis in her new memoir Trippin’with Terry Southern.
