Turns out the rumors of Vance Reno’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, and, upon returning home after the Civil War ends he finds his girl, thinking him dead, has married his younger brother. And to top that off, his old Confederate comrades aren’t real keen on the idea of returning some Yankee gold they liberated, which once more pits brother against brother in a conflict that can only end in tragedy … Originally intended to be a strict dramatic role, but, once Elvis Presley’s latest single, “Love Me Tender”, went through the roof, his debut film, originally slated as The Reno Brothers, went through both a name change and some massive script doctoring to beef up his part and shoehorn in a couple of anachronistic musical numbers to give the public what they wanted and to cash in on a soundtrack.

And — spoilers ahoy! — after his mama came unglued after his climactic death scene, Presley demanded that his character must never die again in any future film.
 
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.
