Previous movies with the same title included Frankie and Johnnie
(1936) and Frankie and Johnny
(1966), both made exactly approximately thirty years apart, the latter particularly notable for starring Elvis Presley
. The two earlier feature films were both versions of the same story about an 1890s Mississippi River riverboat which were based on a song but this 1991 film was not a remake of them. There has also been an unrelated made-for-television tele-movie entitled Frankie and Johnny
(1950). See more
