Vintage publicity stills from the 1961 movie.
Excellent stills guys.
Thanks for sharing them.
Fantastic stills, including two from the deleted print. As you may all know, the movie had a complete other ending than the one that was released in the cinemas. Nice to see that the stills of some of those deleted scenes are still out there. Yabadabacoooool!
The scene in which Elvis picks a fight with Gary Lockwood is amazing …
Elvis: Everything was fine till you crawled in.
Gary: Crawled dear boy ?
Elvis: Yeah like an insect …
Hope Lange with a cute dog …
I’m a cats lover, why do we never see our furry friends in an Elvis flick, or on
promotional stills? Didn’t he like cats?!
And before you even think about it: I know he liked pussy …
Haha, we were so missing that kind of comments Ger haha, welcome back once again.
Great update on this subject Bob, with a small exception never saw some of these stills before, thanks to you, now thats in the (echoes of the) past.
Great spread of photos, my man! Have you noticed that a couple of them were printed as reverse images?
Interesting Trevor, please tell me wich one, will ya?
You just gotte love the one where Red gets his ass kicked, not even the cow is intrested haha
come back on this one Trevor, wich one of the images is reversed, i realy would like to know…
Wopbop a Lula Wop Bam Boom
The third one down on the left is definitely the wrong way around. Maybe that’s the only one and my eyes were deceiving me when I originally said “a couple”?!?!
Stunning in black & white.
Did you notice ? The picture of the scene, where Glen (Elvis) is running across the field, is not in the movie.
There is so much missing from this movie and I’m not just talking about Forget Me Never and Lonely Man. I just read the original story, The Lost Country, and there could be some real great scenes in it for Elvy … haha, sorry I’m still in the Kid Galahad mood!
In the movie Rock, Rock, Rock, Wild In The Country co star Tuesday Weld lipsynced all the songs (which Connie Francis sang). In 1960 however she did realy try to make a record, the song was Are You The Boy? and if she was driving a truck in those days, I quess the advice would be that she should never quit doing just that :-), check the song out on You Tube and judge for yourself!
Great photos. I don’t recognise quite a few of them from the film. Does this mean that a lot of scenes were deleted?
It may be not my place to answer you here but YES … The songs (as you may know) Forget Me Never and Lonely Man were cut from the film (Lonely Man during a sneak preview, thats why its still in the Trailer) but there also was a complete different ending filmed, to make the movie more suitable for some ages this was completly re-shot, leaving nowadays only photo evidence of this.
Some stunning B&W photos, great feature.
FIRST OF ALL, I THINK THIS SECTION OF YOUR WORK IS EXCELLENT.
AS TO WILD IN THE COUNTRY, THEY TRIED TO FOCUS ELVIS IN A NEW LIGHT AND IT PROVED TO ME THAT HE WAS A GOOD ACTOR AS WELL. TOO BAD THE COPY IN BRAZIL LEFT LONELY MAN OUT, ALTHOUGH IT WAS SHOWN IN THE TRAILER.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.
Absolutely gorgeous. Best site on the www!
