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.
Deborah Kampmeier wrote the script in 1996.
Who are you? Where's my daddy?
Stranger Lady: He's in the can. He'll be out in a minute.
Lewellen: Who's the stranger lady?
Daddy: We, uh, we were waiting for you to watch Elvis.
Elvis Presley's appearance singing "Houndog" on the Milton Berle Show took place on June 5, 1956. Several of the vehicles used in the movie were newer than this. The pink Desoto (or Dodge) was probably a 1956, but it's not likely that a rural Alabama woman would be driving a new car. The tow truck used to tow the Desoto was a 1957 at the oldest, and it was quite beat up. The red Pontiac at the Elvis concert was a 1959.
