When the film played in theaters, Elvis Presley's fans were screaming so loud that audiences couldn't hear any of his lines. See more »
During the robbery of the payroll train, up the track in the direction of the train's travel, there are modern CTC block signals of the Southern Pacific Railroad which were installed in the 1930s (beyond the siding switch). Centralized Traffic Control for railroads did not exist in 1865, nor did the heavier rail on the right of way shown in the film (at least 100 pounds). See more »

Go on, say it Cathy! Say you don't love him. You can't, can you? You think I couldn't feel it? With you lying awake beside me every night? Wishing I was Vance! Wishing you'd waited for him and never married me!

If you want to avoid the low-quality movies that Elvis unfortunately made during the 1960's you can still watch this piece. That the "King" is not in the main role gives the film more credibility and you can really say that Love Me Tender is a good movie. With Elvis only as a troubadour works fine and the film remains a proper western too.
Perhaps there has been better westerns too but the storyline in this one is enough interesting: a man returns from the American Civil War and finds his wife at home married to another man. With this marital mess and some other problems being solved Elvis drops in and offers some fresh music, or the music that was still fresh when the movie was being made. It is anyway relaxing to see the "King" in a most unspoiled context.
