R | | Drama, Music
A drama set in the American South, where a precocious, troubled girl finds a safe haven in the music and movement of Elvis Presley.
Edward Lachman, the original cinematographer, had to leave after two weeks of shooting to work on another film. Jim Denault shot for the next month; gaffer Stephen Thompson took over near the end of shooting.
I got you somethin'.
Lewellen: What'd you get me? What'd I get, what'd I get?
Daddy: Let me see if I can find it. Let's see, where'd I put it? Baby, I can't seem to find it. I just don't know where it is.
The 45 rpm record that Lewellen's father gave her in the truck (supposedly by Elvis on RCA) is apparently a reissue of an original which did not exist at the time.
