Fun in Acapulco (1963) Poster

Trivia

Elvis Presley didn't film in Acapulco and a stunt double was used. Elvis himself was barred from entering Mexico as he had been declared as "persona non grata" by the Mexican government due to two incidents at the Las Americas movie theatre in the Mexican capital, one of them being a brawl between Elvis's fans and naysayers. The main cause was comments made by Elvis himself saying that he refused to perform live in Mexico, as he found the country distasteful as a whole and would've preferred to "kiss three African Americans than a single Mexican."
