Mexico’s King Creole Riot

lots of rock concerts caused riots, but so did King Creole, an Elvis Movie

1959: While Elvis Presley’s popularity in the U.S. was arguably at its all-time peak, Mexico was in the midst of a huge anti-Elvis backlash.

Tijuana tabloids called him a racist and homosexual, after the singer reportedly told gossip columnist Federico de León “I’d rather kiss three black girls than a Mexican.” A Mexican woman in the same column was quoted saying “I’d rather kiss three dogs than one Elvis Presley.”

When Elvis’ movie King Creole screened in May 1959 at the Américas Cinema in Mexico City, newspapers who’d advertised the film under the title Melodía Siniestra (Sinister Melody) reported a “riot” occurring.

Mexican counterculture novelist Parménides García Saldaña wrote a short story, “El rey criollo,” about the screening where several hundred gatecrashers reportedly shredded the seats and threw lit papers onto patrons from the balcony.

The Cine Las Americas unleashed a series of negative diatribes against youth in the press and the broader society. As in so many other cities, the new rock and roll music was described as “demonic” and as perverting youth and turning them away from the presumably preferable habits of Mexican families. The government even took the extraordinary act of encouraging the National Institute of Fine Arts to prepare a list of acceptable songs. This was distributed to all broadcasters in the country, and they were forbidden to play songs that were not on the list.

Fortunately the storm was short lived and parents were eventually convinced that the music was innocuous and even Elvis went in for a much more mellow take on Mexico. G.I.Blues, released in 1960 was a wide commercial success, despite being largely a conservative capitulation. And by the time Fun in Acapulco was released in 1963, teenage rebellion had entirely moved on to different and far more rebellious outlets.

Elvis Presley Movie Star

As a teenager, Elvis worked as an usher in a movie theatre, dreaming of being the hero on screen.

He dreamed of being the movie hero and being in movies, and as with making a genre of music his own, so too, did he have his own Star Vehicle Presley Formula Flick.

It was in that theatre Elvis sat while Dewey Phillips played the one sided singed “That’s All Right Mama” for the first time on air. He got so many calls to re-play that song, that he called the boarding house where the Presleys lived and a neighbour got the phone and got Gladys, who then ran out of the house, with Vernon to get their boy down to the radio station to do his first on air interview, over before he realized it was going on. Elvis Presley had a stutter that got incorporated into his singing.

Elvis Presley’ first being in a movie was a short concert film as an opening act with Pat Boone headlining in the Bill Randle Cleveland Disc Jockey Radio Personality – it was likely broadcast on regional television, screened once at a local high school and the film has disappeared into a private European collector’s hand at the last rumour.

Elvis Presley’s short film:

The Pied Piper of Cleveland: A Day in the Life of a Famous Disc Jockey (Documentary) (performer: “That’s All Right, Mama”, “Mystery Train”, “Good Rockin’ Tonight”)

At a press conference the following day, Costello explained, “It became necessary for me to outrage these people with about the most obnoxious and offensive remarks that I could muster.” Later he personally apologized to Brown and Charles and did some work with the Rock Against Racism project.
