Viva Las Vegas (1964) Poster

Trivia

Surprisingly, according to Variety, "Viva Las Vegas" earned more in distributors rentals than "A Hard Day's Night" despite both films being released in 1964 at the height of Beatlemania. "Viva Las Vegas" grossed $9,442,967 compared to $6,165,000 for the Beatles' debut feature.
One of the guitar players on the soundtrack was singer/actor Glen Campbell. He plays on What`d I Say.
When the wedding scene was filmed, many tabloid magazines at the time published photos of the "wedding" and suggested that Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret really had gotten married.
Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret recorded a duet, a Jerry Leiber / Mike Stoller piece called "You're the Boss", but it was never used in the film. It has been released since.
