Original stills from his 29th movie.
No comments yet?! Not even from Charro’s number 1 fan, Gerrit?!
Too busy on Facebook, Gerrit? : )
Well ok … it is suprising to see how much promotion went along with the Charro title … National General Pictures realy made a great effort to promote this different kind of an Elvis film … looking at the stills its surprising to see how many show Elvis with just a plain white shirt, I asked co star Solomon Sturges about this and he does remember the extreme heat during the making of the movie … it is likely that the stills from Charro wearing the white shirt only are rehearsals … by the way Elvis nickname for Solomon was Billy Sol … Wanted 10.000 Dollars reward … Jess Wade, American, six foot two, dark hair, Fair Complexes … The rest is history.
I really don’t think Elvis was 6 foot 2. Wasn’t he barely 6 feet? Why is that so often quoted as his height?
I’m only quoting the script from Charro :-)
The high heel spanish like cowboy boots added the 2 extra inches…Just like the white boots on stage in the 70s.
