King Creole

King Creole was Elvis' last film before starting his two years of National Service in the United States Army. His Sixties performing career, consisting solely of movie and record-making, commenced with the film 'G.I. Blues' in 1960 and ended with 'Change of Habit' in 1969.
Only two more cinema films were to follow, both being early 70s documentaries about his concert tours, stage performances and lifestyle.

Jailhouse Rock

Judy Tyler / Mickey Shaughnessy / Dean Jones
Jennifer Holden
Pandro S. Berman / MGM
released November 9th 1957

Elvis's third and probably best film was shot in black and white.
The film stars him as Vince Everett who saves a woman but kills
her attacker, for which he is sent to prison for manslaughter.
Inside, he learns to play guitar and, with his superb singing voice,
becomes a sensation all ready to hit the big time on his release.
The fame gives him an oversized ego which causes problems with both his
new girlfriend and his former cellmate. A dark movie with a happy ending.
The classic title song scene was choreographed by Elvis himself.

King Creole is based on the Harold Robbins novel, “A Stone For Danny Fisher”.
The story is about a tough young man from Bourbon Street, New Orleans, who
works in a nightclub to help support his family. He is thrown out of school and gets
involved with bad guys, helping them to rob a store by creating a diversion with his
singing. During the robbery he meets Nellie (Dolores Hart) and becomes so smitten
with her that he decides to go straight but, as a result of a meeting with nightclub
owning mobster Maxie Fields (Walter Matthau) Danny finds himself forced to prove
that he can sing. He impresses Charlie LeGrand (Paul Stewart), owner of the King
Creole Club and is offered a job. He becomes increasingly in demand, and Fields tries
to get him back to sing in his own club using underhand means.
