Some of the earlier Elvis’ films were from the Fifties but this one was not – so technically not really a film of the fifties – in fact 1967 – however it was on TCM today Saturday 13 February 2016 -and very good it was.
His leading lady in this was Annette Day an English girl who starred along with Elvis in this one although she was an unknown and not really an actress. However she does very well in this one in a major part.
She was spotted working on her Mothers stall in Portobello Road in London and offered the leading part – which she accepted and went out to Hollywood. After this film she packed in and just lived a normal life although she must have had many offers to do other things.
Elvis seemed to get on very well with her also
