Clambake (1967)

By 1967, Elvis Presley was nearing the end of his movie career - having played a singing racecar driver, a singing cowboy, a singing Indian, a singing assasin, a singing doctor, a singing lifeguard, a singing soldier, and well, I could go on and on. In Clambake, he's up to his usual singing shenanigans - this time playing a speedboat racer/water ski instructor/oil baron. Little do the lovely beach babes including Shelly Fabares know that he's switched identities with a lowly water ski instructor at a tropical resort. You can guess the rest, boy meets girl, girl wants rich boy, rich boy pretends to be poor boy and tries to seduce girl, girl is interested in other rich boy that looks just like Bill Bixby, etc, etc... 

As lobby cards go, these are pretty uninteresting. Each one features a still from the movie and two black and white illustrations of Elvis. I do find it hilarous all those kids dancing on that tin roof in the first card. Methinks there may be some movie set magic happening there. Spoiler alert - if you do watch the movie - Corbin Bernsen is one of the kids in the playground scene. It's his movie debut!

Lonelyhearts (1958) aka "Miss Lonelyheart"

Lately I've been more than a little obsessed with the lovely Myrna Loy. This 1958 fare, Lonelyhearts, Loy plays a browbeaten alcoholic with the smoldering Montgomery Clift as a manipulated newspaperman and introducing Maureen Stapleton as the requisite occupational distraction. Clift is an eager to please the boss and is assigned to write a column and becomes too deeply involved in the problems of his readers ultimately having to choose between his job loyalty and his girl. Stapleton was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for her debut performance in this interesting adaptation of 1938s Nathanael West's book and Howard Teichmann's play.  It also stars Dolores Hart, Robert Ryan and Jackie Coogan
