    I had an interview whit Charro co-star Solomon Sturges earlier this year, great stories, well the guy had some wonderful memories of the making of the movies and its deleted material.

    Didn’t Charro play in cinemas in The Netherlands? Like with airplay (Elvis got little over here) I always got the impression most of Elvis’ movies did not circulate in the Dutch cinemas. Is this why there is no Dutch poster? Or is there a Dutch poster known to exist?

    If there is a Dutch one I’ve never seen it, I do know that cinemas like Tivoli made their own posters, I have a Kissin Coussins like this … also there where the newspaper clippings that had the USA artwork with Dutch titles over it, like Paradise Hawaiian style became Elvis Vliegt Eruit en Flaming Star became De Mesties.

      Thanks Gerrit for this small but precious recollection. Elvis Vliegt Eruit is not a very tempting movie title, isn’t it? The title was perfectly on par with the film though… I love that sheet 1 USA poster… Very stylish!

        You’re right Alexander … then again how do you retitle a movie …. i remember those Belgium titles like Een Ruiter In De Avondstond (LMT) Elvis En De Non (Change Of Habit) en De Kreoolkoning (King Creole), the movie poster art on the other hand is sometimes a pure work of art.

  7. O my sweet lordy moma! Me gettin’ into a discussion about his later films!
    Let’s clear a few things : Dutch cinemas didn’t make their own posterwork, or thought
    up the Dutch titles. Gerrit, the Dutch titles, such as De Mesties (Flaming Star) Elvis
    op de vuist ( Follow That Dream ) etc, all came from the Dutch movie companies
    who represented the U.S. companies over here. The ads in the newspapers at the
    time also were sent out directly to the cinemas, who in turn would send them
    to the newspapers to advertise the title playing where and when. So to cut a long
    story short: there never was any poster art made over here, like it was done in
    Belgium or Germany, to name two of many. The only thing that was done was
    changing the American title into a Dutch title. Not surprisingly, most Dutch people
    at the time didn’t speak or read English.
    From 1968 onwards some Elvis movies didn’t make it into the Dutch cinemas. And
    for the simple reason nobody outside the hardcore fans could give a toss about
    those dated badly made Elvis flicks anymore. The final title I remember seeing in
    a cinema was Stay Away Joe. A year or so later, stranded in Eindhoven ( the South
    of Holland) I passed by a cinema playing The Trouble With Girls… or as it was
    advertised “Elvis 69″ , Position 69 is a fun one, but the movie wasn’t.
    Change of Habit never made it into the Dutch cinemas, and I believe the same had
    happened to Charro. End of the 60s, before In The Ghetto, Elvis was nearly totally
    dead. No matter what you might read in the fanclub mags of the time…

    Oops i am realy getting my ass kicked here hahahaa,
    Then again i only said that tivoli made their own posters by using a Tivoli sized poster and printed the title on it with some disturbing “Kom Elvis Zien” advertisment, and that i had one like this…
    Elvis later movies bad? Sure, but i still loved the artworks on that poster stuff
    Thank you for the info Ger i know how hard it must be for you to speak out on those later movies :-)
    Rock On

  9. Wasn’t the “Tivoli poster” some sort of A-4 promo flyer handed out at the cinema
    at the time? Printed in only one or two colors?
    Gerrit, not to worry, I don’t kick nice guys asses…!

    I remember skipping work one afternoon and taking in Charro at a matinee showing in New York City. The theater was very empty. I thought the movie wasn’t very well made and Elvis was kind of stiff but I welcomed it as it was no longer the days of Clambake & Speedway but I knew the days of Elvis being a movie star were numbered. I didn’t care though as his musical career was enjoying a tremendous resurgence.

    It’s a Belgium sized poster from Tivoli but you were right just in two colours … wish I had that Delorean from Back To The Future so I could travel back in time and beg for that “Dolle Liefde”(LY) poster at a Cinema :-)

    Haha, Gerrit if I had a Delorean car I’d travel to Lubbock to see Elvis perform .. and meet Buddy and Bob also

    Now what is a wonderful collection of Charro Memorabilia whitout at least one little story on the side?
    We all know that much of Charro went in the trashcan of the editing room and I am sorry to say I wasn’t there to save any of it … Director Charles Marquis Warren was forced by the Hollywood big shots to redo the original script, but there was protest … Warren slipped a scene in the movie where Elvis’ character forced Billy Roy (fantasticly potrayed by Solomon Sturges) to step outide of the saloon, Billy turns around looking at a painting of a naked woman who’s butt had been cut out of the frame, he says “How am I suposed te recognize her when somebody cut out her face?”.
