Though The Charge at Feather River isn’t the precise origin of The Wilhelm Scream, it does have the honor of coining the phrase itself. Sort of. What the hell am I talking about? And what’s a Whilhelm Scream, you ask? Well, I’m sure you’ve heard it, we all have, and to find out more you can click on over to the Brewery where I get to the bottom of the most heard unheard of Hollywood cliche. And on top of that, The Charge at Feather River also contains one of my favorite applications of 3-D, when an unarmed Frank Lovejoy’s Sgt. Baker spits several volleys of tobacco juice right into a camera to fend of a deadly rattlesnake. *ptui* Wow.

No matter how deliriously weird, wonderfully asinine and repetitively repetitive they got, there are only two Elvis movies that I openly do not like. One, is Paradise, Hawaiian Style, which I found ponderous and kinda boring. And the second is this flick. I mean I dig the living hell out of the sheer stoopidity of Easy Come, Easy Go and Stay Away, Joe but find Follow that Dream nigh unwatchable. I’m at a loss. It stars the Big E, was directed by the same guy who did THEM! and written by same guy who scripted The Thing from Another World … Maybe it caught me on a bad day. Maybe I need to revisit it again. Maybe that’s me shrugging right now.  Dig those ads, though…
