A Solid Western Drama Brings Elvis to the Screen......
1 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Love Me Tender" was filmed as "The Reno Brothers" and was a solid western drama concerning a train robbery by Confederates before word got around that the war was over. At issue is the cash from a Union payroll. The film was well written and the acting was universally solid. This was Richard Egan's and Debra Paget's movie; with Elvis Presley in a supporting role as Egan's hot headed kid brother.

Therein lies the only fault with this picture. The lines of moviegoers stretched around Loew's huge and beautiful (3485 seat) Capitol Theater were wanting more of Elvis -- the nation's biggest star -- than the 4 songs in this movie. The assignment for Elvis was to play Egan's younger and immature kid brother, so (guess what?) Elvis comes across as young and immature. In 1956 he was faulted for bad acting, which was a bum rap.

Any Civil War movie benefits from being told from the Confederate side, as we were the good guys and the best fighters. With 2 to 1 odds in numbers, we took down 2 blue-bellies for every johnny-reb that fought. Sixty-five percent of the Civil War casualties were Union. But anyway "Love Me Tender" isn't so much a Civil War movie as a post Civil War movie. Just don't get me started about Yankees, that's all.
