Star of the Month: Elvis: “Troubled Youth”

TCM, beginning at 8pm EST, Catch a Classic!

Tonight’s lineup of Elvis Presley film classics begins with four titles covering a spectrum of the “troubled youth” theme, from the King playing such youths, to him portraying a character helping underserved youngsters in need. The night begins with one of Elvis’ most famous movies, 1957’s musical drama Jailhouse Rock, his third feature and the one that introduced some of the most iconic images of Presley’s film career against the backdrop of a soundtrack filled with classic Jerry Lieber/Mike Stoller songs, including the rockin’ title track, “Treat Me Nice” and “(You’re So Square) Baby I Don’t Care.” Next, in the musical Follow That Dream (1962), Elvis plays the son of a vagabond family traveling through Florida, while the 1966 musical Frankie and Johnny finds him playing a compulsive riverboat gambler. Rounding out tonight’s themed lineup is Change of Habit (1969), Elvis’ final acting role, in which he plays a doctor serving an underprivileged community, starring alongside Mary Tyler Moore as a nun who can’t really be blamed when she finds herself tempted with feelings for a physician who looks like Elvis. After this film, early the next morning, is Elvis on Tour (1972), a Golden Globe-winning concert documentary. — Jeff Pfeiffer
