And that’s gonna wrap up our week long tribute to The King of Rock-n-Roll. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did digging it all up.  And with that, I’ll leave it to the Big E to sing us out…

And here’s another one that has inexplicable escaped my viewing eye. The plan is to remedy this during TCM’s marathon of Presley pictures later today as part of the Summer Under the Stars month. Until then…

In a slight change of pace that we have seen since … what, Blue Hawaii? Anyways, for this shindig, the Big E plays another heir of wealth and fortune who wants for nothing except a desire for people to like him for him — and not just for all the perks that go along with his last name. And to accomplish this, he switches identities with his new best friend. Let the merry mix-upped identity shenanigans begin, am I right? Also of note, “Do the Clam” is not featured in Clambake — for that you’ll have to track down Girl Happy — but it does contain one of my favorite movie ballads:

Here it is, folks. The absolute zenith, the pinnacle for all perpetuity, the most absurdest buffoonery ever befallen, the most absolute gob-smacking brain-bending smack-down to ever occur in the annals of cinema: a dueling duet between Elvis Presley and Elsa Lanchester. That’s right: it’s the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll vs. the Bride of Frankenstein in a little number I like to call…

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.
