    Behind The Scenes:

    The screenplay was based on Dan Greenburg's novel "Kiss My Firm But Pliant Lips".
    This was also a working title for this movie.
    Vernon Presley appears in this movie, as an extra sitting at a table.
    Albert, the great Dane, was played by Brutus, one of two dogs actually owned by Elvis.
    I read on another Message Board that Priscilla was quoted as saying that Brutus was not used in the movie, he was not that well-behaved, and she didn't know how that rumor got started. So was he or wasn't he Elvis' dog?

    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    Was NOT their dog, but I am still not sure that the picture that was mentioned in the the 1st post is actually Priscilla. I watched the scene a few times and I am still not convinced it was her; however, if it was her picture, that would be a really endearing touch to his movie set!!!

    I recently read in another MessageBoard that Priscilla stated that the dog was not Brutus. That was just a rumor and she has no idea how it got started. She was also quotted as saying that their dogs were not that well behaved. Hmmm.

    This movie is one of my favorites. I remember I stayed up when I was little to watch it on TV. It was on at 2:AM, Ohh and yes, I did play sick and not go to school the next day.

    I popped my copy of that movie in a couple nights ago to see if I could find Priscilla's photo. I found the scene, and zoomed in, it didn't look like her photo, but it was a dark haired woman in a big hat. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it was NOT Pris, I just couldn't be 100% one way or the other!
    Liz, I agree, it would be an endearing touch - something I wouldn't put past Elvis doing. Lisa

    One of my favorite Elvis movies!! The funniest comedy he did. Unlike some here, I loved Michele Carey!! I thought she was perfect for the part. Cool that Elvis got to share the screen with is Dad and his Dog. LOVE IT!!

    Could it maybe be that the girl who Elvis photographed in the movie, the girl who plays a mermaid, is she maybe in the 1968 Comeback Special, too? I mean when Elvis sings "Let yourself go". The blond girl.

    There are a few scenes i thought were funny when the "grocery guy came in and the dialog between Elvis' character and him. And when the great dane(Brutus or not) chased Elvis in the waterAnd Elvis called him a horse! Imo it was a good movie. Watch Kissing Cousins and compare the two! Now i would've told the Colonel "I aint playing my own twin cousin and sing a lame song called barefoot ballad!

    I don't know why a lot of people don't like this movie. This one of E's best movies from the 60's. I always loved this movie. Loved Michelle Carey. As someone already said here she was definitely right for the part. Great comedy! Elvis was really good too + the soundtrack is fantastic.
