Elvis Presley is credited as co-writer of the film's four songs, but in fact had little to do with writing them; it was just for purposes of royalties. Elvis did reveal at a 1968 press conference , when asked about his " lack of songwriting, in general" that he did contribute one line of lyrics to the title song, "Love Me Tender". See more »

[Clint has just been shot after defending Vance... Cathy "Kit" Reno rushes to his side and takes him into her arms]
Just lie still.
[gasping for breath]
Kit... where's Vance? I gotta talk to him.
I'm here, Clint.
Vance, I didn't mean it! I swear I didn't mean it...
I know you didn't, Clint. You don't have to tell me. Everything's gonna be all right.
[looks at Kit, then at Vance]
Everything's gonna be all right

I watched this movie because I was curious about Elvis in movies. I didn't expect much, but I was happily surprised. So, when I came to look for more information about it, I was even more surprised this movie has such a low rating here. The story is very good, controversial even in many ways. It has no boring moments, the drama is constant. The acting is good for the time. The music is also appropriate for the setting, both Elvis's songs and the score by Lionel Newman is also very effective and good for the time when it was done. This might be a problem for many, the time. Judging a movie like this by today's standards is doing it a great injustice. I've seen lots of old movies that don't hold the attention as much as this. Even the acting of Elvis, being this his first movie, and him being a singer not an actor, was quite convincing. I've see lots of actors not pull the jealous rage the way he does.
