My older brother (age 62) wanted to watch it with me after I had e-mailed him some YouTube clips of Arthur O'Connell's funny/ironic comments about the "government". He fully enjoyed it and thought the writers did a great job with the humor, and he thought Elvis delivered his lines with the timing and pacing of a "real" comic actor.
I couldn't believe that he had never taken the time to watch the movie as many times as it has been on television over the past 40+ years or so!
(Released in theaters over 50 yrs. ago)
When I asked him about it he replied, "Well, I saw Kissin' Cousins several years ago on tv and maybe a few others, so I just figured Follow That Dream wasn't any better than Kissin' Cousins so I just never bothered to watch it."
Anyway, to the point of this thread - We first played the original theatrical trailer. I saw something that I hadn't noticed before (and I apologize if this has already been discussed here before, but I couldn't find anything about it in the search system).
During the trailer there was nothing of "What A Wonderful Life" to be heard, yet portions of the other four songs were included with two of them inserted more than once.
The following reading parts are flashed on the screen during the trailer -
HEAR ELVIS SING
A SCREENFUL OF
HAPPY SONG HITS!
"FOLLOW THAT DREAM"
"SHOW ME A GIRL"
Notice anything strange there?
Of course... "I'm Not The Marrying Kind" is wrongly titled, but those are the first four words of the song.
So, what was the reason for this?
1. Maybe that was the working title given to the writers
(David/Edwards) and they hadn't yet completed the song
and had not come up with their own official title?
2. And as for "What A Wonderful Life"... maybe it had not yet been
submitted so therefore no mention of it in the original trailer?
Thoughts or ideas, anyone?
