Jailhouse Rock

Elvis stars at the young Vince Everett, who serves a one-year jail sentence for manslaughter. While in Jail, Everett befriends his cellmate, a former country singer, who introduced him to the record business. Everett takes to it so well that he decides to become a singer when he gets out. However, when he becomes a superstar, will his desire for fame and money cause him to forget the people who got him there?

Jailhouse Rock has a sad history, with co-star Judy Tyler’s tragic accidental death in a car accident three days after filming was completed. It is rumoured that Elvis refused to watch the movie because of this tragic event.
