  King Creole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King Creole is a 1958 Elvis Presley film and soundtrack based on the 1952 Harold Robbins novel, A Stone for Danny Fisher.
Because the more serious and gritty film strayed from the pretty scenery/pretty girls plotless formula that the legions of Presley fans wanted, it was less than a smash at the box office.
The soundtrack was recorded at Radio Recorders studios and Paramount Studios Scoring Stage in Hollywood, California during January and February of 1958.

 PBS - JAZZ A Film By Ken Burns: Selected Artist Biography - Joe "King" Oliver
King Oliver is said to have begun music as a trombonist, and from about 1907 he played in brass bands, dance bands, and in various small groups in New Orleans bars and cabarets.
Joe "King" Oliver wrote the tune, but it was Louis Armstrong's 1928 recording that put it in the jazz pantheon.
After 1924 the quality of his recordings declined, partly because of recurrent tooth and gum ailments and partly because his style was at odds with that of his younger sidemen; but with a good orchestra he was capable of coherent and energetic playing even as late as 1930.

 King Creole Band "The Best Classic Party Music From the 60's to the 80's"
The members of King Creole have been entertaining North Texas audiences for more than two decades, today performing a special blend of ’60s, ’70s and ’80s classic-rock chart busters, with occasional splashes of ’50s and ’90s hits.
The current members of King Creole have played parts in some of the most popular and recognized groups in the region, lending their talents over the years to Dash Riprock & the Dragons, Vince Vance & the Valiants, the Betty Band, the Wild Mohicans, the J.B. Strut Band, the G-Men, and the Party Crashers.
Oh, and lest anyone forget that King Creole is the only band in the Metroplex with the fabled “Gun of Fun.” (We’ll explain it later.) The band boasts five fabulous vocalists, each distinctively different.

 Elvis Presley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The movies Jailhouse Rock (1957) and King Creole (1958) are regarded as among his best early films.
King said he began to respect Presley after he did Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup material and that after he met him, he thought the singer really was something else and was someone whose music was growing all the time right up to his death.
He was proud of his role in King Creole because the part was originally offered to his idol James Dean.

 The Austin Chronicle Screens: Review - King Creole
His singing is at least good enough to sell out the King Creole club every night, and soon young Danny is a local star, attracting good, moral five-and-dime girls like Nellie (Hart) and troubled, violated women like Ronnie (Jones, who acts a shade more lively here than she did as Morticia in The Addams Family).
King Creole was, without a doubt, the pinnacle of Presley's acting career; it's well-documented that after his service in the Army, the King's troubled personal life led to his downward spiral and ultimately to his porcelain resting place.
King Creole was a final artistic gasp for Curtiz, and he gave it his all, most notably through the monochrome look of the film that perfectly evoked the seediness of the story's elements -- love, music, and especially the streets of New Orleans.

 King Oliver’s Creole Jazz Band Featuring Louis Armstrong
The first ones we’ll explore are probably the most famous and treasured recordings made on the Gennett label, the recordings made by King Oliver and his Creole Jazz Band on April 5th and 6th of 1923.
King Oliver was one of New Orleans best coronetists and a member of the highly regarded Kid Ory Band.
With the early success of Gennett’s recordings with the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, a pipeline was opened up that brought Chicago artists down to Richmond, Indiana to record and soon the Oliver band was on it’s way to record what still stands up today as some of the greatest jazz recordings of all times.

Intending to be serious, the real fun of King Creole rests with laughing at the implausible formula plot devices and enjoying the music.
Of course the King will join that number before long, credible since he grew up with the blues and gospel sounds of the Delta region, bringing “fl music” to crossover white audiences.
The stint at the King Creole makes it easy to work in musical numbers, and Elvis shines along with the excellent four-man backup group, The Jordanaires.

 The DVD Journal | Quick Reviews: King Creole   (Site not responding. Last check: )
While trying to do the right thing, and avoid a group of small-time hoods lead by Shark (Vic Morrow), Fisher also is drawn between two women — young, innocent Nellie (Dolores Hart), and former nightclub singer Ronnie (Carolyn Jones), who is under Maxie's thumb.
But don't think the folks at Paramount were going to green-light a movie from the phenomenal singer without a few tunes, and King Creole's most rewarding moments come when Presley drops the method acting and belts out a song.
The memorable numbers here include "Hard-Headed Woman," "Lover Doll," the title tune "King Creole," and especially the sneering "Trouble," most all done in cabaret performances and with backing vocals by The Jordanaires, who appeared on The King's early records.

Directed by skilled studio veteran Michael Curtiz (Casablanca, Mildred Pierce), Elvis displays an acting ability that had only been hinted at in previous roles.
Presley always said that Creole was his favorite film; it and the previous year's Jailhouse Rock are most likely his best features.
