  Flaming Star
Flaming Star is a solid Western drama about a half-breed son in a small Texas community.
There are clich├ęs to be dealt with in Flaming Star, but Siegel's action style keeps things fresh and covers any dull passages up with some ambling sagebrush and Western horse play.
One lasting impression you have after leaving Flaming Star is that Presley could have become a very strong acting presence given the right kind of screen roles.

In "Flaming Star" all the best moments, I reckon, come in the first half of the movie when the plot is taut, the acting and the dialogue is convincing, and the tension builds.
When it was released, "Flaming Star" apparently received quite a lukewarm reception from most of the the critics and it seems to have gone down in history as a mediocre and rather muddled effort.

The bright blue star to the north of this image, AE Auriga, is the illuminating source for the faint nebulous region called the Flaming Star Nebula (IC 405).

 Flaming Star/Brian W. Fairbanks-Writer/Movie Reviews from Movienutz
With a literate screenplay by Clair Huffaker and Nunnally Johnson, based on a novel by Huffaker, and the customarily tight direction of Don Siegel, Flaming Star is a meaningful drama potently performed by a strong cast.
The modest reception given Flaming Star and the complete failure of the Clifford Odets scripted Wild in the Country may have sealed his fate more than any Faustian pact he had made with Colonel Tom Parker.
Ah, but Flaming Star is not an "Elvis Presley movie." It’s a thoughtful, intelligent western drama, and a good one, that happens to star an actor named Elvis Presley.

Fire, typically defined as the rapid molecular acquisition of oxygen, happens only when sufficient oxygen is present and is not important in such high-energy, low-oxygen environments such as stars.

 The DVD Journal | Quick Reviews: Flaming Star
While in development Flaming Star was a vehicle intended for Marlon Brando or Frank Sinatra.
His "serious" picture with only two songs, the western Flaming Star (released in 1960) isn't a masterpiece, it's more a picture that's been deemed important because of its more daring content: racial prejudice.
Obviously, by casting one of the entertainment world's greatest stars as a half-breed, the film was attempting to make a statement.

This is a false-color image of the star AE Aurigae (bright source of light near the center of image) embedded in a region of space containing smoke-like filaments of carbon-rich dust grains.
Such dust might be hiding deuterium, an isotope of hydrogen, and stymieing astronomers' efforts to study star and galaxy formation.
Because deuterium is a tracer of star and galaxy evolution, this discovery has the potential to radically alter theories about how stars and galaxies form.
