The film was a big earner, costing $1.5 million and grossing about $5 million worlwide. It was credited with saving Allied Artists from bankruptcy.

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.
