Prior to this Clint Eastwood movie, in popular culture, the Pink Cadillac was, and still is, a car very much associated with Elvis Presley. In this movie also, Jim Carrey impersonates Presley. In a 2010 interview with 'USA Today', Eastwood said that he used to play 'fast draws' with Presley. During the 1960s, Presley and Eastwood were often filming next door to one another in the studio and struck up a friendship. Eastwood said: "I was always wearing a gun...Presley loved to do fast draws and stuff, so we always did fast draws together...I liked him...He seemed like a good guy. Had a lot of guys hanging around, big entourage'. I get a kick out of my wife, who is quite a few years younger. She'll say, 'Did you know 'Elvis Presley?' I'll say, Sure. James Dean? Yeah. Bobby Darin?' Yeah. She'll look at some old picture of me and say, 'What a babe!' (Laughs) We were all hanging around at the same time, in the 1950s. We were all here in town, and all struggling in various things. I was doing Rawhide (1959). There was a camaraderie among the younger group".
