MGM released Double Trouble in Italy in July 1968 with the Italian title Fermi tutti, cominciamo daccapo! which loosely translated means “Hold on, let’s start all over again.” This beautifully framed Italian promotional poster presents stunning illustrations of Elvis and co-stars Yvonne Romain and Annette Day looking more like 007 and two Bond girls. An impressive poster that probably looked as great pasted up on the wall of a building in Rome as it will in your collection. The entire display measures 58 by 42 inches (147.32 x 106.68 cm) and the poster measures 55 by 39 inches (139.7 x 99.06 cm). The bottom of the frame has a plaque that reads “Double Trouble Italy.”

It's a great poster, but the main figures shown don't seem to have anything to do with what is in the film !


I completely agree! The Italians sure had a lot of imagination. :-)

The Belgian title (in Dutch & French) means: ‘Pleasure Cruise’

The comments reads:
Great 60's artwork from English artist Tom Chantrell. Elvis Presley fans were delighted to hope that he would come to England as the film script promised but were to be dissapointed as the film was filmed on a backlot in Culvert City. Tape marks, paper lift and a thin biro cross on one of the small images of Elvis at the foot of the poster.

Antwerp here we come

The song was written by Randy Starr.
Together with "Could I fall in love" it was one of the demo's for the movie Double trouble.
Elvis thought it sounded a lot like the traditional song Old MacDonald so Elvis decided to record Old MacDonald wit re-written lyrics by Randy Starr.

There's so much world to see

The song is written by Sid Wayne & Ben Weisman. Publisher Gladys Music - copyrighted 13 june 1967.

On the first pressings the songwriters are wrongly mentioned: Sid Tepper-Ben Weisman.

The EMC acetate with There's so much world to see - picture version is the undubbed / unedited track 2004 take 1.
The second verse is edited out in released versions (Celluloid rock vol. 2 CD 3) but's on the acetate.
The order of verses is different to the record version.

BABY IT’S WRONG, WRONG AS CAN BE
TO TRY AND TIE A GUY LIKE ME
I COULD NEVER SETTLE DOWN
IN A LITTLE SLEEPY TOWN
THERE’S SO MUCH WORLD TO SEE

STRANGE TO THE NIGHT
FLASHING THEIR LIGHT
WELL IT ONLY SHOW ME I’M NOT FREE
EVERY WHISTLE THAT WILL BLOW
WILL TELL ME GET UP AND GO
THERE’S SO MUCH WORLDS TO SEE


SURE WE’D BE HAPPY FOR A WHILE
BUT THEN WE’D HAVE TO PART
WHEN TEARS REPLACE YOUR LOVIN’ SMILE
WELL I DON’T WANNA BE THE GUY WHO HAS TO BREAK YOUR HEART

SO HERE’S WHERE IT ENDS
NOT LOVER’S BUT FRIENDS
THOUGH YOUR LIPS ARE TEMPTING ME
MAYBE I’M A FOOL AND YET
THIS WANDERER JUST CAN’T FORGET
THERE’S SO MUCH WORLD TO SEE

SURE WE’D BE HAPPY FOR A WHILE
BUT THEN WE’D HAVE TO PART
WHEN TEARS REPLACE YOUR LOVIN’ SMILE
WELL I DON’T WANNA BE THE GUY WHO HAS TO BREAK YOUR HEART

SO HERE’S WHERE IT ENDS
NOT LOVER’S BUT FRIENDS
THOUGH YOUR LIPS ARE TEMPTING ME
MAYBE I’M A FOOL AND YET
THIS WANDERER JUST CAN’T FORGET
THERE’S SO MUCH WORLD TO SEE FOR ME
THERE’S SO MUCH WORLD TO SEE

Long legged girl
The acetate track 2005 take 6 is cut by EMC after the recording session. This acetate has a version with backing vocals.
When the track is released on Today tomorrow and forever and FTD Double trouble the backing vocals are errased.
