The Fastest Guitar Alive” is one of those rock’n'roll movies that rock’n'roll would probably like to disown.  In fact, it may have driven rock’n'roll to drink – and it was doing all right in that department before this film came along in 1967.

It’s Roy Orbison’s only acting role – for a clue as to why, see the movie.  Fortunately, he didn’t give up his day job so he could sit in a Hollywood apartment waiting for his agent to call with that next big offer.  According to Tfh guru Allison Anders, Elvis Presley had first crack at this gem and turned it down.  Elvis must have already read the script for “Clambake” and decided that his Oscar was waiting to be picked up.
