Originally shared by Amanda Garrett
Elvis Presley’s first film, Love Me Tender, premiered Nov. 15, 1956. Elvis plays a 19th Century farm boy who romances Debra Paget (second photo) and gets mixed up in the Civil War. The Times Square premiere (third photo) attracted a lot of crowds to gawk at the super-sized image of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll that adorned the theater.
