Hail! And Happy Birthday to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll!

And once more the IMDB seems to have their wires crossed a bit, saying the premiere for Harum Scarum wasn’t until December, 1965, which is false, and made finding these a pain the patootie but, in the end, the hunt was well worth it. Also of note, the ads call Harum Scarum a comical spoof but it was not originally intended to be. As the legend goes, when Colonel Parker saw a rough print he went absolutely apocalyptic and berated producer Sam Katzman, perhaps the only person in the world cheaper than Parker, that they needed to add a talking camel to the picture as the only means of salvaging it. Well, the camel never made it into the picture but it did make it into the adverts.
