When Elvis pulls up to the house in the beginning his girlfriend gets out of the car wearing a maroon pantsuit; when he opens the door and they enter the house she is wearing blue shorts and a blue workout suit jacket - this will be due to scenes that were not used in the film as in this scene it also shows Elvis going in the front door then the next scene it shows him coming through Graceland from the back entrance, passing the front door from the inside before heading upstairs. This can be explained by taking note of Elvis' last hours. He came home, played racket ball in the racket ball building before entering Graceland from the rear entrance and then retreating to his room. This will explain the different clothes that the Ginger Alden character wears.
Certain sequences in this film were recreated.
