The blazingly bright colors are what grab the eye. The poster is stored folded, measures 41 by 27 inches (104.14 x 68.58 cm).

1961 Elvis Presley Twice-Signed Copy of Pioneer, Go Home! (Book Adapted for Follow that Dream) Signed While Filming in Florida – Also Signed by Nine Other Cast and Crew Members!

image.jpeg

When Elvis and the rest of the Follow That Dream production invaded Inverness, Florida, in July of 1961, a young girl named Maude made it a point to go get herself a paperback copy of the book on which the film was based, Pioneer, Go Home! Sometime during the filming in the old courthouse in Inverness, she saw fit to collect a number of autographs.


image.jpeg

The offered book has been signed by Elvis twice, once on the inside front cover and once on the title page, most likely at two different times, as the pen ink appears to be different. Additional signatures include co-stars and crew members Joanna Moore, Anne Helm, Arthur O’Connell, Alan Hewitt, Robin Koon, Gavin Koon, Dolores Rubin (script supervisor, who wrote “Thank you Maude - Love, Dolores Rubin”), Gordon Douglas (director, who wrote “Hi Maude, Lot o’ Luck, Gordon Douglas”) and Ray Sitton (a Memphis Mafia member known as “Chief”).
The Koon brothers’ autographs are especially touching, written in their finest 8-year-old script. Director Gordon Douglas’ career spanned nearly every era and genre of early Hollywood, beginning as a teenage actor in the earliest talkies, then going on to direct “Our Gang” and “The Little Rascals” shorts, films with Laurel and Hardy, the sci-fi classic THEM!, Robin and the 7 Hoods, and In Like Flint. In another great story related to the film’s production, an 11-year old Tom Petty got to meet Elvis because his uncle was part of the staff. Supposedly, he promptly traded his slingshot for a stack of Elvis records!

Follow that Dream - Lobby Card.jpg
PDVD_147.JPG


It always strikes me as odd that when they make the lobby cards for a colour film, they use a black & white photo & colourise it !

And not always with the right colours, either !

Often, they aren't even stills from the actual film !

See above how the colours are different on the lobby card & George [played by Howard McNear] seems to have lost his jacket !

One of the bank guards [played by Red West] has his shirt unbuttoned & not tucked in !

It's my guess the lobby card is from a rehearsal !

Odd !

Thank you, Colin, for your excellent observations! Odd, indeed. I'll do a search for info about the production process of Elvis lobby cards. I'll keep you posted - I can't promise that I'll find that info, but I'll try.

PS: Maybe you could use a lobby card for your quiz... Spot the differences with the actual movie footage ;-)

That's a good idea !

Something the more dedicated quizzer could look up for themselves !

I wonder how many would go to that trouble ?

If the quizzers think it's too much trouble, they can still have a (wild) guess. :-D

Honestly, I wouldn't know how many quizzers would go to that trouble. Maybe you could ask if they'd be interested in such a quizz before putting one together. If they don't like the idea, you don't have to put your time into it. Just a suggestion. You're the quizmaestro, Colin 8-)

I don't even have to ask them - just try one & see what the response is !
