Sync up your DVD or digital copy of King Creole and watch along with Gurdip & Justin! From Michael Curtiz's direction to Elvis' co-stars like Carolyn Jones, Walter Matthau and Delores Hart, from the heavily Leiber/Stoller soundtrack to whether it really qualifies as film noir, this is a unique TCBCast episode for a truly unique highlight in Elvis' filmography.
Please note: due to some editing issues, there are brief portions of the commentary where there are silences. These are intentional to keep the commentary synchronized with your copy of King Creole.
For Song of the Week, the guys both manage to pick songs from Elvis' contemporaries, with Gurdip bemoaning the "Summertime Blues" and Justin digging into the history of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin," the biggest hit from Elvis' Speedway co-star, Nancy Sinatra - both songs with more Elvis connections than you might think!
