In August, 1961, Elvis Presley, his co-star Ann Helm, and the movie production company for "Follow That Dream" came to little Yankeetown, Florida. On the beach, they set up to film the movie. The few hundred residents watched the filming and occasionally made contact with the stars. A young girl who lived in the town took four photographs of the set on a kodachrome-type camera and got Ann Helm to sign a sheet of paper. The four photos are 4" X 4" and have never been published
Me and my twin sister were in a movie with Elvis Presley in 1961. The movie was filmed near my home town. It was mainly in Yankeetown, FL, some in Inverness, FL, and Ocala, FL. This is part of my private collection.
