Motorcycle


In real life, Elvis rode a Harley-Davidson, but in this movie they put him on this silly little Honda with safety bars on the sides and he looks pathetic. Why didn't he insist on using a bike that would have been more in keeping with his leather-jacket-wearing hard-boiled character? Maybe Honda had some investment in the movie, but Elvis was certainly big enough at that point to do what he wanted to. I can't believe he didn't laugh when he first saw what he was supposed to ride.
