During this week in 1962, Elvis and his entourage arrived in Seattle, Washington, for location shooting for his film "It Happened At The World’s Fair." Grossing close to $2.25 million at the box office, the movie also featured a young Kurt Russell with an uncredited speaking role as a boy who Elvis' character (Mike Edwards) pays 25 cents to kick him so he could visit the character Nurse Warren. The movie also featured several members of the Memphis Mafia including Red West and Joe Esposito. The Seattle Center, including the Seattle Center Monorail and the Space Needle, served as backdrops for several scenes in the film. On the final day of location filming Elvis presented two Tennessee hams from Former Tennessee Governor Buford Ellington to Washington Governor Albert Rosellini and the head of the World’s Fair. In celebration of Elvis' time filming "It Happened At The World’s Fair," we've added five photos to our Elvis Mobile 2.0 iPhone appElvis Mobile 2.0 Android app, and Elvis for iPad app.
