Stay Away, Joe; Dominique


Länge: 102Minuten


Datum: 14. März 1968



The shooting lasted from 09.10.1967 to 22.11.1967.
Stay Away, Joe came to the American cinemas in March 1968 and appeared before Speedway.

On 09.10.1967 the filming was shot in Sedona and Cottonwood in Arizona. The studio recordings were filmed at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios - 10202 W. Washington Blvd., Culver City, California.

With Stay Away, Joe finally shied away from the standard scheme of the usual Elvis films. They shot a fresh and cheeky western comedy with well-known actors like Burgess Meredith, Katy Jurado and Joan Blondell. During the filming, Elvis was able to see that it was fun to stand in front of the camera again.

Joan Blondell, who played the role of Glenda Callahan, played in Grease 10 years later with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

The film reached # 65 in the "Variety List" of the most successful movies in 1968.
A review in Variety reported "generally flat comedy" with "many forced slapstick situations," and echoed Thomas's review by stating that the story was "out of touch with latterday appreciation of some basic dignity in all human beings ... At best, film is a dim artistic accomplishment; at worst, it caters to outdated prejudice. Custer himself might be embarrassed — for the Indians.
