Trivia

Elvis made this film in a deal with the floundering Allied Artists which saw him take a pay cut and not record any new material in exchange for 50% of the film's profits. The film was a big earner, which is credited in saving Allied Artists from bankruptcy. See more »

Col. Tom's pimping reaches a new low

Allied Artists, the studio known for grade C efforts starring the Bowery Boys, made a bid for respectability in the late 50s by signing class directors like Billy Wilder, William Wyler, and John Huston to make films for them. They did, but by 1965, the studio was facing economic disaster. Their salvation turned out to be Elvis Presley. Colonel Tom Parker cut a deal for his "boy" to make "Tickle Me," and, sure enough, the grosses for the film saved Allied Artists from bankruptcy. Unfortunately, everything about "Tickle Me" is bankrupt. The songs are good, especially "Dirty, Dirty Feeling," but that's because they had already been released on earlier Presley albums, and weren't commissioned specifically for the film (after Presley's salary, there wasn't enough money to hire songwriters). Elvis brings his customary charm and wit to the proceedings, thereby making it watchable (Jocelyn Lane helps in that department, too), but this is probably the artistic low point of his movie career. More than any of his other films, this one was strictly meant to cash in on his popularity. It's the ultimate example of Colonel Tom Parker, the showbiz pimp, in action.
