Early in the film the Captain Salbo character wears a tropical Army Class A uniform, without decorations; decorations are mandatory on this uniform, especially with his service record described in the dialogue. Elvis' lieutenant character also wears Air Force service dress (Combo 1) with pilot wings but no decorations. USAF officers in 1964 would have at least the National Defense Service Medal. Also, military creases are not allowed in USAF uniform shirts, as Elvis' character wore. See more »
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 »
Music, girls and hillbilly madness in them there hills!
Dual role for Elvis doesn't equal half of a good movie. Presley plays a military officer (Josh Morgan) trying to convince distant hillbilly relatives to give up their land to install a new missile base. Josh runs into a blond look-alike cousin; man hungry mountain gals; and an innocent moonshine still. Not hard to tell this is a Sam Katzman quickie production. Very apt cast includes Arthur O'Connell, Pam Austin, Jack Albertson, Yvonne Craig, Cynthia Pepper and Maureen Reagan. The soundtrack album easily generated more money than this flick.
