At the end of the movie, the "THE END" sign is shown by Pappy Tatum (Arthur O'Connell) and Captain Salbo (Jack Albertson) as they each hold up a paddle, one reading THE, and the other reading END as they both shake hands. See more »
Bad Elvis movies often make the tastiest cinema treats
Here is an Elvis picture with something for everyone: The King appearing in a dual role as a soldier and a hillbilly, exciting fist-fights, surrealistically phony mountain and forest studio sets, hapless choreography, and gorgeous Yvonne Craig as one of the backwoods spitfires who tries to capture E's heart. The film's true value, however, is that is accomplishes the touchstone of any Presley flick worth its salt -- it contains a scene in which Elvis takes a pratfall into a body of water. In one song, E croons, "Life's a playful puppy/You can grab by the scruff/And if you live every sec, what the heck?/Once is enough." My thoughts exactly.
