1. The movies.
Elvis was not a good actor, and his movies are horrible.
Take, for example, Harum Scarum (1965).
He plays a movie star (naturally) who’s kidnapped and taken to a Middle Eastern
country where he’s enlisted by—get this—the Lord of Assassins to kill an Arabian king. Oh, and he falls in love
with the king’s daughter. Check out the film’s trailer, which we thought was a
parody until we noticed it was posted by Warner Bros.
