Presley Picture: Loving You

Hal Kanter watched the final Elvis Hayride concert and wrote the script for Loving You.

Hal Kanter, Elvis Presley, Wendell Corey and Lizabeth Scott:


The Nice Guy who makes good, Freedom of Speech and Rock n Roll.

Throw in a broken down country band and a manipulative press agent.

Desert Fury (1947) Paired Scott and Corey fighting over the same man in this Hayes Code era Western, mildly replayed as they fight over Elvis in Loving You – an early rocksploitation flick loosely based on Elvis.

Bandleader Corey vies with Ex Wife/PR Agent for Elvis.

Loving You would be Lizabeth Scott’s last movie, the Film Noir Actress with the huskey Bacall voice was outed as a lesbian by a gossip magazine. Scott’s attempt at a lawsuit was lost on a technicality of filing rather than that she was a lesbian.

As a musical and not serious movie, Loving You was filmed in colour.
