Big sale at BearManor Media and great time to buy my book Talking Sixties Drive-In Movies just as the warm drive-in weather is approaching! Ends May 12 at midnight.
Speaking of TALKING SIXTIES, I’m about halfway through the opening chapter about Elvis musicals. Although most of them aren’t great films, I find the supporting casts to be the most interesting aspects of these pictures. It’s fun to read what people like Nancy Czar and Gail Gerber thought about appearing in them.
Coincidently, Kino has just announced Blu-rays of CLAMBAKE and FRANKIE AND JOHNNY, due to their access to the United Artists library. Myself, I’d rather see ROUSTABOUT, WILD IN THE COUNTRY, and IT HAPPENED AT THE WORLD’S FAIR released. I realize that the latter isn’t a great film either, but I was a regular visitor to the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962, and I remember when Elvis was in town to shoot about a week’s worth of location shots.
Glad you are enjoying. I like Clambake but Roustabout has become one my favorite from the sixties with Girl Happy; Paradise, Hawaiian Style; and Easy Come, Easy Go. If Pamela Tiffin would have done the movie as she was offered instead of Joan Freeman (who is fine) it definitely would be tops for me.
More Elvis on Blu-ray! Twilight Time has just announced KID GALAHAD for Blu-ray release in August. They’ve also announced a Blu-ray of SUDDENLY LAST SUMMER, which doesn’t star Elvis.
KID GALAHAD was the first record I ever bought for myself. It was an EP with six songs, rather than a 45 rpm.
