Love this picture of Nancy Sinatra (what a beauty!) and Elvis Presley. This is a promotional picture from the 1968 film Speedway.
Fast (unintentional pun, but enjoyed nonetheless) Facts
- Script originally offered to Sonny Bono and Cher. I’m really glad it ended up in Elvis and Nancy’s hands, I love them in this film!
Nancy Sinatra sings the song “Your Groovy Self” in Speedway. The song was (thankfully) included on the soundtrack LP, making it the only song by another artist to be released on an official Elvis Presley record.
- This was the last of three Elvis Presley films in which his character is a race car driver.
- This was Nancy Sinatra’s final film role – unfortunately.
The first racing film to give opening credits to actual NASCAR drivers.
This is the eighth film collaboration between Elvis Presley and director Norman Taurog.
