Lot description:

This fine Belgian poster promotes the 1964 Paramount release of Roustabout, starring Elvis with Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Freeman and Leif Erickson. The artwork is a departure from the U.S. posters for the film (as is the case with most European posters), with a unique rendering of Elvis, his female co-stars and the whole circus landscape laid out behind him. The poster proclaims in French “L’homme à tout faire,” and in Dutch “Duivel-doet-al,” both phrases meaning a handyman or jack-of-all-trades. Importantly for collectors, the phrase “Imprimerie J. Lichtert & Fils - Bruxelles” appears printed on the lower right of the bottom border—later Belgian reprints often have these phrases printed in English. The metal plaque at the bottom of the frame reads “Roustabout / Belgium.” The poster measures 21 by 14 inches (53.34 x 35.56 cm), is framed to dimensions of 24 by 17 inches (60.96 x 43.18 cm), and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

Perhaps it’s nice to know there was talking in Miami between Brian Summerville – roadmanager for the The Beatles and Paul Nathan accociate producer for Hal Wallis.
On 18 february 1964 he wrote to Hal Wallis The Beatles were crazy of Elvis and would love to work with Elvis in a movie in may 1964. Problem was the Beatles had a three picture deal with United Artists. When the movie company was O.K. and manager Epstein agreed they work out the plans.
Hal Wallis suggested one or two numbers – possibly one alone and one with Elvis (in the finale).

We all know it never happened.

A demo version was recorded on 20 november 1963 by Joey Castle. There's a clip on Youtube.

I like that. It's typical Elvis movie material, really simple and formulaic.

1964 Roustabout Final White Script Dated February 7, 1964 - With Two Lobby Cards

image.jpeg
The movie script evolution includes many stages. This is the “final white” version for Roustabout in which all blue or yellow additions, correction, and replacements have been rerun on white paper stock (with a slight blue tint). The motion picture name is both typed and handwritten on the title page. Also on that page, “SF 83090 / Wallis-Paramount-Hazen” is typed at the top center and “FINAL WHITE / Screenplay by Allan Weiss / February 7, 1964” in the lower left corner. The final white script, coming from one of the film crew and on typed pages measuring approximately 11 by 8 1/2 inches (27.94 x 21.59 cm).

The lot also included two full-color lobby cards from the film, each measuring approximately 8 by 10 inches (20.32 x 25.4 cm).

There are still changes made until 6 march 1964 in the script (extra added 4 pages). Total 118 pages - 6 march 1964 script.

Not sure from where you have compiled all the demo information and script examples you share on the forum, colonel snow - interesting stuff.

Also interesting is the additional information in the script regarding 'the real' Charlie for the Wheels On My Heels number, which gives additional insight into the choice of breezy title track for the movie too.

The two Joey Castle demos you provided on this topic though are significantly inferior to the tracks they actually used in the movie.

Thanks for all the info.
