Furry Lewis is playing an Epiphone Dreadnought (most likely a BT-150 Bard) when young Elvis and his friend see him singing Blues in Shakerag. However, the guitar was not produced until the 1970s and is not correct for the time line in the film. It was Lewis's own guitar at the time the movie was released in 1981 coincidentally the year Mr. Lewis passed.
Certain sequences in this film were recreated.
Version shown on Turner Classic Movies runs 142 minutes.
