Listen, Brett, we didn't steal this money. We took it in battle, fair and square. It's what they call "spoils of war", like capturing a horse or anything else. We didn't know the war was over, and neither did the Federals. So it's still prize money.

Elvis' screen debut didn't put much pressure on his lack of experience. The story line was pretty much like a tv western and seemed awkward trying to fit Elvis' songs into the script. Inspite of being unpolished, Presley still came out almost a flawless gem. Everyone has to start somewhere. This film was by no means something to be ashamed of. 20th Century Fox gave the audience what they wanted...ELVIS.
