You know how folks are always talking about giving the edge to apples over oranges when comparing two things they like against each other when either would do? Well, when I compare film adaptations of Victor Hugo’s novel, Notre Dame de Paris, we gotta add some bananas into the mix because even though Jean Dellannoy’s 1956 version lacks the overall cinematic scope and spectacle of both Wallace Worsely’s silent version or William Dieterele’s 1939 adaptation, I still kinda dig it. And don’t even ask me to try to choose between Lon Chaney, Charles Laughton or Anthony Quinn’s Quasimodo, let alone which gypsy dance I’d rather see: Maureen O’Hara’s or Gina Lollobrigida’s. On second thought. Screw it. I’ll just have the fruit salad.

Once more, and once again, when our boy’s latest gig goes up in smoke due to some rowdies, luck is with him as his latest dust-up lands him a job at an all-girl dude ranch / fat farm. But just when you think the plot is locked in, Tickle Me takes a sudden and drastic 180-degree turn from sagebrush slapstick to haunted house spook-show treasure hunt, where the whole thing comes off as an unused Three Stooges script. Well, turns out there’s a reason for that.
 

This post was part of Da’King Lives, which originated back in January of 2010, to help celebrate the King of Rock-n-Roll’s 75th birthday and throw a spotlight on his fine, fractured forays into feature film.
