Mint Souvenir Sheet Highlights Elvis’ Role in Roustabout
 
This mint souvenir sheet pictures Elvis in his 22nd movie, Roustabout
 
The idea for Roustabout came from Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker, who was a former carnival worker. Elvis filmed the film in the spring of 1964. Based in a carnival setting, it co-starred Hollywood legend Barbara Stanwyck. Elvis’ character, Charlie Rogers, joins Stanwyck’s carnival as a roustabout, falls in love with Cathy, and makes the faltering show profitable by singing to increasingly large crowds. A bad temper leads to trouble before true love, hard work, and great lyrics win out to earn Roustabout a 1964 Best Written American Musical nomination.
 
A real carnival was hired to appear in background scenes. Parker insisted that the movie portray carnival life in a positive way.
 
Elvis refused to use a double during the film’s many fight scenes. For the first time in his career, Elvis suffered a head injury that required nine stitches. Paramount incorporated a crash scene into the script, allowing Elvis to wear a bandage over the injury.
 
Several famous actors appeared in the film. They include Dabbs Green (Reverend Robert Alden on “Little House on the Prairie” and Paul in “The Green Mile”), Jack Albertson (“Chico and the Man” and “Kissin’ Cousins”), Pat Buttram (“Wild in the Country” and peddler Eustace Haney on “Green Acres”), and Richard Kiel (Jaws in “The Spy Who Loved Me,” “Moonraker,” and “Inspector Gadget”).
 
Presley recorded “I’m a Roustabout” for the film but it was not used. The recording was discovered in 2003.
 
Raquel Welch made her film debut in “Roustabout.” Welch is featured in the first few minutes of the film with the opening line “Uh, how come they call this place a tea house?”
