Elvis in Military Training.

RCA released “Wear my ring around your neck/Doncha Think It’s Time”

It was particularly notable for breaking a string of ten consecutive number 1 hits for Presley achieved in just two years. It was Presley’s 6th number-one hit in the American R&B Charts, and peaked at number 2 on the American Pop Charts.

American country music singer Ricky Van Shelton covered the song for the soundtrack of the 1992 movie Honeymoon in Vegas.

Elvis Presley fell on the set of his carnival movie, “Roustabout,” and had to have nine stitches in his right eye. He took one day off. I asked producer Hal Wailis how-come? and got a sensible answer: “We wrote a new sequence into the script, showing Elvis having an accident by crashing his motorbike through a picket fence. Yes, you’ll see him with a black eye in the picture. No, we haven’t shot that sequence yet we’ll shoot it after his eye gets better
