Photos of Elvis Filming "Jailhouse Rock" Added to Elvis Mobile Apps

May 29, 2013

On November 8, 1957, Elvis' third motion picture opened nationwide becoming one of most notable films of our time. "Jailhouse Rock" peaked at #3 in the charts and #14 for the year. This film is considered to be one of Elvis’ best acting performances and the production number in the film is recognized as one of the first rock music videos. By 1969, its earnings in the U.S. and Canada were roughly comparable with those of “The Wizard of Oz.” In 2004, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. The film's soundtrack was co-produced by rock 'n' roll songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. The story about the film’s title song “Jailhouse Rock” can be seen in an interview with Stoller from Elvis Week 2012. In celebration of our final @ElvisPresley Tweet-A-Long, we've added five photos of Elvis filming "Jailhouse Rock" to our Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone appElvis Mobile 2.0 Android app, and Elvis for iPad app.
