Trivia

The song "Pappy, Won't You Please Come Home" has been credited on occasion to singer Dolores Edgin, but it seems that co-star Glenda Farrell did her own vocals as Ma Tatum. See more »

Double Elvis
10 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this is a good movie, it does what it is suppose to do make you chuckle and listen to Elvis sing. The cast is totally into the "backwoods characters" they play. Elvis himself (in a dual role) gives a great performance as the backwoods cousin Jody, a Jethro type character but a little sexier and a little smarter. The Air Force pilot cousin Josh is more like the typical Elvis role. Arthur O'Connell is great as Papa Tatem. Jack Albertson(from Chico and the Man fame)was also good as Capt. Salvo. The production was low budget and made in about 14 days. Elvis hated the blond wig. The idea here is fun. Nothing serious just 60's fun.
