Jailhouse RockVince EverettJudy TylerMickey ShaughnessyJudy Tyler and her husband were killed in a car wreck on July 3, 1957, just days after filming ended. A devastated Elvis refused to watch the movie as a result. Composer Mike Stoller appears in the movie as the band pianist.
1958King CreoleDanny FisherCarolyn JonesWalter MatthauDean JaggerDolores HartPresley's favorite of the films he made.[1] This was also the last Elvis movie filmed in black and white and his last movie before going into the Army. The movie was loosely based on a 1952 novel A Stone for Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins.
1960G.I. BluesTulsa McLeanJuliet ProwseThe 32nd Armored was Presley's regiment when he was in the Army, so it was used for the film. Incidentally, this was Elvis' first movie after his Army release.

1964Kissin' CousinsJosh Morgan / Jodie TatumArthur O'ConnellGlenda FarrellJack AlbertsonPamela AustinYvonne CraigFilmed after Viva Las Vegas, this is Elvis' first dual role. Presley loathed the "strawberry blond" wig he had to wear as the hillbilly cousin in this film, in part because it made him look as he had before deciding to dye his hair black in 1957.[48] The film and soundtrack would be The King's final work preceding the arrival of The Beatles.
Viva Las VegasLucky JacksonAnn-MargretCesare DanovaWilliam DemarestFilmed before Kissin' Cousins. Elvis had an off-screen romance with his co-star Ann-Margret. This would be Presley's most successful film at the box office, returning more than $5 million to MGM on an investment of less than $1 million due to the dynamic combination of Presley, Ann-Margret and David Winters' choreography. Winters' first of four films he choreographed for Elvis.[36] However, $5,000,000 would still be short of the box office returns of The Beatles' first moviewhich premiered two months after 'Viva'.
