Photos of Elvis Filming "King Creole" Now Added to Mobile Apps

February 15, 2013

As we wrap up Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day, we look back on a film known as Elvis' best acting performance and one he truly admired. "King Creole" was Elvis' fourth motion picture and was released nationally on July 2, 1958. The reviews were the best he ever received through out his acting career. The film's impressive list of co-stars and supporting cast included Carolyn Jones, Walter Matthau, Dean Jagger and Vic Morrow. It became a top five film at the box office and is regarded as Elvis' finest film. The movie is set in New Orleans and based upon the Harold Robbins novel, "A Stone for Danny Fisher." Filming took place between January and March of 1958, mostly at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles and on location in the French Quarter in New Orleans. To celebrate the New Orleans tradition and Elvis' favorite acting role, we've added five photos of Elvis filming "King Creole" to our Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone appElvis Mobile 2.0 Android app, and Elvis for iPad app.
