Tickle Me (1965)
Play • 1 hr 38 min

The time has come, at last, for Viva Pod Vegas to get to (perhaps) Elvis Presley's weirdest movie title yet: Tickle Me. We talk about the misleading title (and the original [bad] title, too), read some emails, and make some Scooby Doo connections. We describe Tickle Me's almost inexplicable plot, explore its six (!) taglines and largely unknown cast, and wonder why *this* was the movie that Elvis won an award for. We talk about Elvis continually disrupting everything by singing songs, his duet with a horse, and his many (many) fights. We break down Elvis as a rodeo rider, a Deadwood-era performer, and a mind reader (?). Joey shares his issues with the way this movie plays out, while Mike has ideas on how to easily make it better. We explore the concept of "movie says so," discuss restarting Viva Pod Vegas after we wrap up its initial run, and predict Harum Scarum -- which we had way, way wrong.
