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.

Jailhouse Rock / Treat Me Nice / Young and Beautiful

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.

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.
