Trivia

This movie was part of a deal that 'Colonel Tom Parker' signed for Elvis Presley with NBC and National General. Elvis was paid a large sum for doing both the well-known NBC TV Special (now called The '68 Comeback special) and this picture for National General Pictures. The TV special was shot at the end of June 1968 (and aired in December) and the film was shot in July and August 1968 (and was released early 1969). The TV show was supposed to be a Christmas Special with Xmas songs only but turned to be a rock 'n' roll revival show while the movie, on the contrary, was supposed to be much more violent.

As much as I like Flaming Star, I like Charro a whole lot more. Elvis's acting was more refined. You could tell he was better trained than in some earlier films. Yes, it's a western, and westerns are hardly ever Oscar material. But in its own genre, it's very entertaining. The plot is as good as any other western movie I've seen, John Wayne notwithstanding, and the acting (again for the genre) was quite good. I wish Elvis had been allowed to make more serious movies. As much as I like most of his musicals, the three dramatic ones (Love Me Tender, Flaming Star, and Charro) and his supporting appearance in Change of Habit, were by far the best and the ones that showed his real talent for acting.
