Junkfood Cinema: A Little More Conversation

Elvis Presley King Creole

Paramount Pictures

This week, as Cargill roams the Himalayas in search of more discarded VHS copies of Skatetown USA, I am joined by FSR’s own Culture Warrior and soon-to-be-PhD Landon Palmer for a discussion of the deep-fried film oeuvre of The King himself.

Almost-Dr. Palmer is definitely taking care of business as he breaks down how the shifts in Elvis Presley‘s onscreen performances mirror the shifts in rock-n-roll culture through the 50s and 60s. For my part, I go all fainting Bobby soxer over my love for King Creole and reveal how many times I’ve been to Graceland.

All this, plus the reveal of which Elvis movie was intended to feature a talking camel. A little less conversation, Mr. Presley? Oh no, I think we need a lot LOT more.

You should follow Brian (@Briguysalisbury), Landon (@landonspeak), and the show (@Junkfoodcinema).
