Trivia that mentions this person:
The Naked Gun 2: The Smell of Fear [1991]
  • Robert Goulet plays Priscilla Presley's villainous love interest in this movie. Years earlier, Elvis Presley, Priscella's famous then-husband, once shot his TV because Robert Goulet appeared on it. That TV is now a collector's item.

  • In an interview Sylvester Stallone was asked if he and Elvis Presley ever met. Stallone said that in 1976 after Rocky was released, Elvis contacted him and asked him to visit Graceland and a bring a copy of the film with him. Stallone told the interviewer that he was too afraid to meet Elvis, and he didn't go, but he did send a copy of the film. Apparently, Elvis did indeed watch the film with some friends.
    West Side Story [1961]

    The Spy Who Loved Me [1977]
  • Singer, Elvis Presley saw The Spy Who Loved Me on Wednesday, August 10th 1977 during a special viewing at the General Cinema in Whitehaven, Tennessee. It was the last movie he saw as he died six days later on Tuesday, August 16th, 1977 at the age of 42.
    The Jungle Book [1967]
  • The Vultures were originally going to be voiced by The Beatles. The band's manager, [?] Brian Epstein, approached the Disney studios about having The Beatles appear in the film, and Disney had his animators create the Vultures specifically to be voiced by the band. But when Epstein took the idea to The Beatles, John Lennon vetoed the idea, and told Epstein to tell Disney he should hire Elvis Presley instead. The look of The Vultures, with their mop-top haircuts and Liverpool voices, are a homage to The Beatles; one bird's voice and features are clearly based on George Harrison's. When The Beatles departed the project, the song was rewritten as a barbershop quartet, to make it timeless.
