Dust off your blue suede shoes and head down to the Quarter, as the New Orleans Film Society, the Louisiana State Museum, and the Louisiana Museum Foundation present an outdoor screening of the classic Elvis film King Creole. The film, which takes place in and around the Vieux Carre, will be shown on our new inflatable screen set up on the grounds of the Old US Mint.
About the film: Elvis Presley, Carolyn Jones, and Walter Matthau star in this 1958 film that tells the story of a nineteen-year-old who gets mixed up with crooks and involved with two women. The film was critically and commercially successful and included the song “Hard-Headed Woman,” which became a number one hit for Elvis. He later said that King Creole was his favorite acting role.
