Viva Las Vegas

Continuity mistake: Ann Margaret is seen dancing with high heeled shoes at the beginning of a dance routine and during the routine is seen in flat ballet shoes, then near the end she is seen wearing high heeled shoes again.

Continuity mistake: When Ann Margaret and Elvis are vying to win the big money prize, she is wearing a bathing suit under a white fur coat. Her hair is sleek. When she wins second prize (the pool table) she collects her prize in a pink dress and her hair is styled in curls on top of her head. This is the same dress and hairstyle she wore the night before in the bedroom dinner scene.

Factual error: Elvis and Ann Margaret take a trip in a helicopter over Hoover Dam and Lake Meade. They are flying in a small 2 seater copter with a bubble canopy and no doors. During the trip Elvis and Ann talk to each other without headphones or microphones in a normal tone of voice. In that type of helicopter, especially one with no doors, the sound would have been deafening and they wouldn't have heard each other even while screaming.


Trivia: After the filming, Ann-Margret told the press that she and Elvis were lovers and were going to get married. Tom Parker put an end to the story. Elvis sent her a red heart shaped bed, but the two never spoke again.

Trivia: It was during the filming that Elvis first heard of The Beatles when someone had their first English LP on the set. He took it into his room and listened to it for hours. He then banned their music from the set.

Lucky Jackson: Where you from, Rusty?
Rusty Martin: Dubuque.
Lucky Jackson: Well whaddya know, I've never been there myself, but its interesting that you're from good old Dubuque.
Rusty Martin: Before you get too attached to 'good old Dubuque', we moved there from Chillicothe, Ohio.
Rusty Martin: Chillicothe, Ohio, well, how about that, I've never been there either.

Man in garage: That's quite a rig, I never saw anything like it.
Lucky Jackson: Yeah, it's one of a kind, I built it myself.

Lucky Jackson: Well that's a coincidence, that you were born in Las Vegas and after all that travelling I met you in Las Vegas.
