Which movie did Elvis Presley appear in first?
-“Viva Las Vegas”
-“Love Me Tender”
Answer: On this day in 1956, Love Me Tender, featuring Elvis Presley in his big-screen debut, premiered in New York City at the Paramount Theater. As Presley’s movie debut, it was the only time in his acting career that he did not receive top billing. Love Me Tender was originally to be titled The Reno Brothers, but when advanced sales of Presley’s “Love Me Tender” single passed one million, the film’s title was changed to match. Presley would star in 31 movies (not counting another two concert documentaries). It would be the last time he didn’t get top billing.
