[07-29-2000] Mericier :
There was a goof or mistake made when making the movie Blue Hawaii..with Elvis Presley. Can you tell me what it was?

[07-29-2000] saintly : The 1961 movie "Blue Hawaii", starring Elvis Presley as "Chad Gates" seems to have had a
relatively uneventful production run. There is
a small continuity error; in the scene at the
pineapple plantation the car door is open in one
shot, but closed in the next.

Other bits of trivia about this movie:

Juliet Prowse, who co-starred with Elvis in "G.I. Blues", made too many demands in her contract and was replaced by Joan Blackman, who also appeared with Elvis in "Kid Galahad". Supposedly, Joan Blackman was the only actress with whom Elvis worked that he did not like

Angela Lansbury, then 35 years old, played Elvis' mother in the film (Elvis was then only ten years her junior)

One of the soundtrack albums for the movie was
called "Hawaiian Sunrise". It should probably
have been "Hawaiin Sunset" after the track with
the same title.

The filming run seems to have gone fairly smoothly, especially compared to other Elvis movies like 'Wild in the Country' or 'Paradise Hawaiin Style'.

Hope that Helps
