Every time he tries to call, she hangs up on him, and when he writes to her, she sends it back, marked an homage to a song that was a big hit for Elvis in 1962. Elvis stars as Lonnie Beale, a singing rodeo cowboy who moonlights as a handyman at a beauty spa. Although produced by Allied Artists, the movie was actually made at Studios, which Allied hired for the duration of the shoot. Stanley gets tangled up in the decorations behind their car.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Back at the ranch, people keep trying to abduct Pam to find the location of the treasure. A month later an article in the same publication implied that Tickle Me had actually saved Allied Artists from going under financially. It's all done on the studio lot. She warmed up to Elvis, though, but I'm not sure if they had anything going. It was the only Elvis Presley movie I liked. When it was released on May 28, 1965, Tickle Me marked several firsts in the Hollywood career of Elvis Presley.
It's a crying shame Elvis never got to know really how well he was doing, despite the coming decline of his film career. It doesn't hurt that Lonnie always happens to be nearby whenever the bad guys try to do Pam in. The gags, one-liners, and slapstick seemed so funny to me then. Negli applausi e nelle urla che accompagnano la fine dello show. There's a pretty decent slapstick sequence that takes place in a restored hotel that may or may not be haunted.
It was one of the few mainstream features released by Allied during the 1960s. Also, the eagerness of the ranch beauties to chase after Lonnie drive the storyline, with even owner Vera getting in on the action. He comes to the town of Zuni Wells a fictional town somewhere in the American West because a friend says Lonnie can get a job on a ranch, but his friend is nowhere to be found. I don't know if that is true or not, though it's possible, since Jocelyn was not married at the time. The trio are challenged by some unscrupulous locals after the hidden money. This was the only such film that Elvis ever made. It became the third highest-grossing film in the history of and saved the studio from bankruptcy.
The company later resumed production, releasing Cabaret in 1972 and Papillon the following year. Good cast with Elvis - Jack Mullaney It's About Time , Julie Adams Creature From the Black Lagoon , Bill Williams Kit Carson , Ed Faulkner McClintock. If you take Ann-Margret out of the debate, then Jocelyn Lane is hands-down the sexiest woman to have appeared in an Elvis movie, and that's saying something. But who's to quibble when the movie is so much fun? When rodeo season starts, Lonnie goes on the circuit. They share a comical vision of what the town must have been like when it was still populated.
The first is that I laughed more during this movie than at any other Elvis film before or since. Costs were minimised by the fact that the soundtrack consisted of previously released Elvis tracks rather than original songs, so no new music needed to be recorded other than some overdubbing. In order to save money for the production company no new songs were recorded for the movie. Though several women try to catch the attention of Lonnie, including spa owner Vera Radford, played by Julie Adams, the rodeo rider falls for Pam Merritt. I heard a few years later that she became a princess when she married into British royalty.

One of the ways that the budget was held in check was by not recording a soundtrack written specifically for the film. But a misunderstanding involving Lonnie and Vera angers Pam, putting the treasure hunt and their relationship in jeopardy. Maybe it's time for Amazon to up their game. Also in that scene, Elvis and Jocelyn are often looking at each other as he is singing while driving down the road. Vera Radford Adams sees his performance and offers a job at a ranch she runs called the Circle-Z to take care of the horses.
This is the silliest, feeblest and dullest vehicle for the Memphis Wonder in a long time. Only the names and the locales would change. Elvis gets plenty of opportunities to sing and serenade the ladies. The look on his face is priceless, as was I'm sure the look on every heterosexual male that ever watched this film. A second unit did a bit of outdoor, long-shot shooting in Palmdale without the stars.
I thought so the first time I saw this movie in the sixties and still do. Presley won a 1966 Golden as best male actor in a musical film for this role. This movie was at one time tentatively titled 'Rodeo' and then 'Isle of Paradise'. When the rumors persisted, the Colonel told Broidy he would let him out of the deal, if that would help Allied. His current movie in theaters was Tickle Me, produced by Allied Artists.
