Tickle Me


 

 
Tickle Me
 
Tickle Me is a 1965 Western musical comedy film starring Elvis  as a champion rodeo bull-rider and bronco-buster.
Presley won a 1966 Golden Laurel Award as the best male actor in a musical film for his role in this comedy. It is also the only Elvis film released by Allied Artists Pictures. It singlehandedly saved the Allied Artists studio from financial collapse, Tickle Me helping to avert bankruptcy with one of the songs from its recycled soundtrack, "(Such an) Easy Question", which was a Top 40 hit in the United States, peaking at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reaching #1 on the Billboard Easy Listening chart in July, 1965. The film would eventually make $5 million at the box office.
The screenplay was written by Elwood Ullman and Edward Bernds, who had written The Three Stooges film shorts and theatrical films as well as film scripts for The Bowery Boys.
The film was first released onto the home video market in the VHS format in the early 1980s in a limited version from Allied Artists Home Video. It was issued again by CBS/Fox video in 1985, 1987 and 1992. Its final VHS issue was from Warner Home Video in 1997. In the summer of 2007, the film was released for the first time on DVD, in the wide-screen letterbox format.
This is the only movie for which Presley did not record a new soundtrack; all songs had been recorded between 1960 and 1963 and already released
