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.

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