    53 years onwards it’s still a good, well made movie I can watch from beginning to end,
    without dozing off, as has happened with just about all movie titles that followed
    Flaming Star…

    Fantastic topic, I have some real nice memorabilia from this gem. Keep them coming Bob!

    Ger, I made it a rule never to go against you but … uh … never mind :-)
    Rock On.

    Gerrit, please never hold back. You can say anything you like on this site.
    And I would welcome a bit of discussion on this, or other topics…
    Problem for me is, I just don’t like most of his post Army movies. With the
    exception of parts in Viva Las Vegas ( C’mon Everybody and I Need Somebody
    To Lean On) the 60s flicks are weak , and at times sheer horror. If I’m in the
    mood for a good comedy, I will pick out one with Jack Lemon… If I want to watch
    some action I’ll pick one with Robert de Niro or Clint Eastwood.
    And that’s why I only rate G.I.Blues and Flaming Star as the only two post
    Army movies still worthwhile watching these days. A matter of taste, I know.

    What’s the story behind the colourized stills Ger? Coulors are so bright and unnatural. Looks a bit Andy Warhol-ish…

    Maybe its because i became an Elvis fan through his movies that i may have an other opinion on those Hollywood years altough there`s no excuse for flicks like Easy Come Easy Go, lets be honest Spongebob squarepants makes more sense….then again being a collector of Elvis movie posters especially from Belgium i have a weakness fot those movies…but to be honest NOTHING beats Elvis singing Ready Teddy on the Ed sullivan show, watching it on super 8mm…WOW.
    By the way the Belgium King Creole poster (De Kreool Koning) is an Orgasm for the eyes :-)

    I guess the colourisation is similar to those of the set of 7 usa lobby cards (number 8 was a title card), i believe this was done for magazine publications purpose but then again… i may be wrong, tell us Bob??? :-)

    The first time I laid eyes on a set of black & white stills colourised were the
    ones from Love Me Tender. I don’t think it had anything to do with magazine
    publication purposes, for their was plenty of real color shots around at the time.
    I believe this had to do with re-releasing some of the titles for U.S. theaters in
    the early to mid 60s. The original lobby cards had all been worn out , and it
    was a lot cheaper to hand- colourise the stills, instead of re-printing the larger
    lobby cards in full color. The only time ( that I know of ) the large 1950s lobby cards
    were re-printed, was to tie in with the re-releases of LMT and King Creole circa
    1960…? The LMT color images were replaced by black & white images while the
    King Creole lobby cards were printed in Black & Orange colours only, to save on
    printing cost. Do correct me if I’m wrong.

    My all-time favorite Elvis-movie. Elvis is great in this movie with a great supporting cast. Somebody should make an INSIDE FLAMING STAR book one of these days. This movie deserves it. There should have been more Elvis-movies like this one, instead of these horror-flicks that followed it.

  11. This film featured 2 of the hottest people of their time. Barbara Eden was such a fantasy & the King himself … their babies would of looked like Scarlett Johansson for a girl & maybe Brad Pitt for a boy … NOT that I am knocking Lisa Marie in ANY way! She has been #1 on on “freebie-list” forever lol !
