So... 50's style pompadour hair...

Nice to see that even the Civil War couldn't stop the king from wearing his hair in his trademark Pompadour with his sideburns.

Couldn't they have at least TRIED to make it period correct?


Same story in Love Me Tender. He had the sideburns, and he even had a scene at a fair where he performed on-stage and did the gyrating hips. That movie took place in the Civil War era too.
