A Tribute to King Creole


Before there was such a thing as an Elvis Movie, Elvis made a couple of movies (that's movie with a small "m".) One of those movies was King Creole and in our opinion it is one of his best. The rock and roll songs are there of course. The girls too. The hip attitude also. And the exotic locale. But wrapped around these basic elements that made up the sum-total of later Elvis movies is an involving story (this one based on a Harold Robbins story called a Stone for Danny Fisher) and interesting co-stars (Walter Matthau as a wonderfully slimy nemesis and Carolyn Jones as a damsel in distress love interest.) And most importantly Elvis Presley displays an innate acting talent that would often be overshadowed by schtick in later movies. If you've never seen Elvis in action on the silver screen this is a good place to start. If you have, you're probably a fan of this movie already. Please enjoy our Tribute to King Creole.
