Trivia

In an obvious wink and nod moment during the film, Elvis holds up a letter and says....What do you think this is, a ham sandwich and points at the letter and says Return To Sender. This is obviously referring to his 1962 hit single. See more »

Somebody's trying to scare the sideburns off Elvis!
26 September 2005 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Elvis Presley plays the Panhandle Kid, staying busy at a female dude ranch pitching hay, checking out the gamms on the girls while they're exercising, arguing with his female boss (who can't keep her hands off him!) and, of course, singing whenever the movie's pace needs a boost. In an outrageous but silly/enjoyable plot twist, it turns out one of the young ladies is involved with villains who are after her hidden treasure. All this leads Elvis to a ghost town where the bad guys dress up like ghouls and try to scare the sideburns off him. A brainless hoedown with an array of songs from the vault, "Tickle Me" served as Presley's IRS tax-bill movie and he's barely in character. Jocelyn Lane is a sexy cowgirl, while the haunted house finale is something new for a Presley picture. ** from ****
