Goofs

When Elvis was on the stage singing "Clean Up your Own Backyard". The musician behind him is playing a Yamaha 12 string guitar(Most likely, a Yamaha FG-220), which is a dreadnought. Elvis is playing a six string dreadnought. Both guitars in question are square shouldered dreadnoughts with a 14th fret neck/body join.

Considering the movie itself being set in 1927, both the six string guitar and the twelve string instrument Elvis and his backup musician were playing didn't exist in 1927.

The dreadnought guitar was invented in 1931 by CF Martin & Co. and had round shoulders with a neck/body join at the 12th fret. The square shouldered dreadnought with the 14th fret neck/body join wasn't introduced until 1934. See more »

Loaded with familiar faces too bad they forgot a plot
15 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For an Elvis movie his presence here is strictly secondary and he is sidelined throughout. The picture seems like it wanted to be more than it was, which is a run of the mill mystery with a few songs thrown in. It tries to tell a couple of different stories at once, none really compelling, and sort of limps along until it just ends. Of more interest as a chance to spot the familiar face in small parts than anything else. Hey look there's Vincent Price and Buffy from Family Affair and Cindy Brady and WOW look how young Dabney Coleman is! At least the film is loaded with reliable performers, Sheree North, Edward Andrews, Marlyn Mason, John Carradine etc. they just aren't given much to work with. Not a ghastly film just very ordinary and not terribly involving.
