Love Me Tender shoot New York October 1956

Thu Oct 08, 2009 12:46 am

Elvis attends Junco Studios on East Sixty-Ninth Street,New York on October 29th 1956 for a new ending to be shot for the movie 'Love Me Tender'.It was concluded that after preview screenings,a superimposed Elvis Presley over the dying Clint Reno singing the main title theme would be more acceptable.

It's definitely a screen garb, perhaps from the "This Is Elvis" DVD.

Another terrific topic, David, thank you.

Thanks for all the contributions ( unseen by me)
Apparently an alternative ending to "Love Me Tender" in which Elvis lives, was filmed but not used. The late James Drury who played one of the older Reno brothers - Ray Reno , remarked when asked about the scene being filmed with Clint Reno (Elvis) and living at the end of the movie " I believe that's true,but they did have him die in the end,and it would have really been a mistake not to have him die given the epiphany and catharsis at the end of the film.You know he got his just deserts."
