Ladies and Gentlemen, Boils and Ghouls, meet my favorite Elvis movie.

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.

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.
