One of three films that Elvis Presley and Kurt Russell have in common. Russell appeared in the Elvis movie It Happened at the World's Fair (1963), he portrayed Presley in the TV movie "Elvis" (1979), and he played an Elvis impersonator in 3000 Miles to Graceland (2001). In "It Happened at the World's Fair," Russell (who was a young boy at the time), ran on screen and kicked Elvis in the shin. In "3000 Miles to Graceland," this scene is parodied when a young boy runs on screen and kicks Russell (in full Elvis attire) in the shin. See more »
Natalie Wood's wrists are bare in the late-night arcade scene. When Wood was 9 she injured her left wrist and had a bone protrusion, after that she never appeared in public or in film without a bracelet on or having her wrist covered in some way. See more »

The one & only king of impersonation of Elvises!!!
This is a great movie, too bad it's not on VHS or DVD. Russell does the best impersonation of Elvis Presley I ever saw & I saw them all. :) This movie doesn't go into the last years of his life, but we don't really want to remember Elvis all bloated, we want to remember him like this movie portrayed him as.
