Upon hearing about the movie for the first time, Elvis loved the idea of his character as being somewhat of a sheik. He liked the character because he thought he resembled Rudolph Valentino. During filming in Los Angeles, he would wear the headpiece home and even to the dinner table at his house in Bel-Air. Eventually, he grew tired of the film because his character was made to look like a fool.
