Please go to the 'Elvis Express' Website at:
All I can say is I've never heard of that song being filmed in any book on Elvis, but I would assume it could be possible.

I think that there's footage filmed for movies that we haven't seen
The Too Much Monkey Business sequence in This is Elvis has a clip from Vivia Las Vegas of Elvis pouring champagne for Ann Margaret and the male rival driver and Elvis opens the bottle and champagne foams everywhere
Elvis' comic timing was amazing - but that's not how the movie scene plays out
Also, I would think from Flaming Star, that the song Britches was filmed and would be part of that sequence where the Burton family was at home and then Clint and his brother ride into town to a cool reception following the murders
when they are riding, Clint is teasing his brother about the fiance wearing britches and then they arrive in town and there's some suggestive musical notes of the song.

I recently found an on-line blog called ELVIS TODAY and they recently posted information about deleted movie scenes! Here is some of the information they posted:
The comment, posted by Norton McColl who ran an Elvis fan club in Brazil for many years, goes likes this:
One thing I learnt is that most of Elvis movies presented in Brazilian movie theatres had alternative scenes. Here it goes. KING CREOLE has shown the alternative hotel scene where Elvis and Susan Hart actually got inside the room. GI BLUES had the alternative TONIGHT IS ALL RIGHT FOR LOVE (Vienna Woods) scene which is completely different than the one released later. SPEEDWAY had the FIVE SLEEPY HEADS scene where he actually sings to 5 babies. HARUM SCARUM had two extra scenes included which are ANIMAL INSTINCT with a black panther circulating and WISDOM OF THE AGES where Elvis bows to the King at the end of this latter song.
I do not know for sure whatelse we could see in the movie theatres in the 50īs and 60`s. I wish we had VHS sets at that time. But it looks like they always use South America to show alternative scenes. The same happened with Hammer horror movies productions whose bloody scenes in full colour were later cut from released VHS's and DVD's.
The article then continues with this information:
Well, I can tell you as much :
"Summer kisses winter tears" certainly was filmed as it was only cut after preview (because of test audience laughing at the scene).
"Steppin' out of line" has a short sequence in European prints.
The same with "Anyone" from "Kissin' Cousins".
Both songs from "Harum Scarum" were seen in prints distributed in the Middle East and "Sand castles" was also present in Europe, following the "House of sand" sequence.
Having worked in the movie and tv-world for 42 years, I strongly suspect all songs will have been filmed. They were probably cut for different reasons and some reappeared in different prints to be distributed in countries that had other copyright laws or interests. FTD and EPE must be unable to clear the rights or retrieve the actual scenes, otherwise they sure would have published them in new versions of the movie DVD's.
I know they have severe problems with copy rights for some of the movie song versions and that they're trying like hell to clear those.
So it sounds like there is indeed some unreleased movie footage out there of Elvis!! Hopefully one of these days, these unseen movie clips will make their way out onto DVD for the fans to see!! (y)
By the way, if anyone wants to check out the ELVIS TODAY blog, here is the link: http://elvistoday.blogspot.com/
I do recall the "Five Sleepy Heads" scene being in the version I saw in 1968, I also recall the "champaign bottle scene" in Viva Las Vegas.......
the Kissin Cousins, Harem Scarum, GI Blues differences I have never seen. Sometimes people saw the films on TV and confuse it with having seen it in theaters and many things were cut for TV to make way for more ads. I hope all these things are still on film somewhere and will get released someday.

I've never heard of footage existing of this song. It would be very cool though. I'd love to see some of the outtakes from his movies though. I'm amazed that some haven't been released. I'd buy a movie of the outtakes that's for sure.
