Elvis Double Feature King Creole
June 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Elvis Presley delivers one of his finest early performances in King Creole, playing a teenager named Danny Fisher, who is forced to drop out of school to help support his ineffective father (Dean Jagger). Drawn to trouble like a magnet, Danny is saved from a jail term by New Orleans saloon-keeper Charlie Le Grand (Paul Stewart), who gives the boy a job as a singer. It isn’t long, however, before local gang boss Maxie Fields (Walter Matthau), a shadowy figure from Danny’s criminal past, puts the muscle on the boy, insisting that Danny sing at his establishment. Together with Jailhouse Rock, King Creole is one of the best, filmed examples of the untamed, pre-army Elvis Presley. Rated PG
