I know, I know, the Jailhouse Rock number was the showpiece for this flick, but I’ve always preferred this simpler number and the magical properties of Scotty Moore’s sunglasses.

One of the few bona fide musicals The Big E ever made, Jailhouse Rock is also reputed to be the only film of his that Elvis never watched. The reason: the tragic death of his co-star, Judy Tyler, who was killed in an automobile accident just three days after filming wrapped up. Apparently, Elvis was so distraught over this that he could never bring himself to watch her last performance.
