A part of SR40 was re-named "Follow that Dream Highway" in honor of this movie having been filmed there. A sign in Inglis, Florida (about 13 miles north of Crystal River) proclaims that fact. However none of the movie was made in Inglis, it was filmed in adjacent Yankeetown. The city council of Yankeetown declined to name their stretch of road after Elvis because of concerns in regards to his drug addictions in later years. As of November 19th 2011 the Mayor of Yankeetown issued a Dedication for the Yankeetown stretch of SR40 to be named Follow That Dream Parkway with a new sign directly under the Yankeetown sign was unveiled. The original Elvis Presley Fan Club-The Elvis Presley Continentals was in attendance for the Dedication. See more »

That's why I use my education against 'em.
Sure. Whenever some pretty girl starts to bother me I just close my eyes and say, "One times one is one. One times two is two. One times three is three, and all the through to the eights. Usually, I only get the sixes and they get discusted and walk away."

This is one of Elvis's best films in my opinion. And one where he extended his range a bit. Usually he plays he troubled youths, or confident smart people who are trying to prove themselves. Here's he's an innocent in the world and it's a tribute to his acting skills that he was acquiring that he didn't descend into being Gomer Pyle.
Of course the film is greatly helped by the title tune which in my opinion is one of his best movie songs. Follow That Dream rightly belonged among Elvis's golden hits.
With an innocence here that rivals even Stan Laurel or Harry Langdon, Elvis manages to defeat some pretty sharp characters. The film itself has a charming innocence about it that makes it thorough going fun.
