JAILHOUSE ROCK
1957, Warner Brothers, 96 min, Dir: Richard Thorpe

In his third film, Elvis is Vince Everett, a guy in the pen for manslaughter. His cellmate, Hunk Houghton (Mickey Shaughnessy) is a former country star who introduces him to the record business. Once the King is released, he quickly rises to the top as a rock ‘n’ roll singer. But will he remember the folks who got him there? Another of Elvis’ best, it features slambang Leiber-Stoller songs, and the jaw-dropping "Jailhouse Rock" production number. Elvis belts out the title tune as well as "Baby, I Don’t Care" and more!


Screening format: 35mm
