Speedway stars Elvis as Steve Grayson, a race car driver who entrusts his finances to his manager Kenny Donford, played by Bill Bixby, later known for his role as Dr. Banner in The Incredible Hulk. Kenny, a compulsive gambler, has been using Steve’s winnings to support his habit, which lands Steve in trouble with the IRS. Nancy Sinatra plays Susan Jacks, the IRS agent tasked with recovering that debt, who becomes Steve’s romantic interest. Significantly, Nancy Sinatra performed the only non-Elvis song to be featured on one of Elvis’ soundtracks. Fittingly, NASCAR star Richard Petty—also known as “The King”—makes an appearance in this race car-themed movie. Offered is a black-and-white photo depicting Elvis and Bill Bixby flanking two others on the set of Speedway. It’s likely this personal photo was never published. On the reverse is written “On the ‘Speedway’ Set with Elvis Presley & Bill Bixby June 1967” in red ink. The photo measures 10 by 8 inches (25.4 x 20.32 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The photo presents with one small area of staining in the upper right and several pieces of tape on the reverse. Excellent condition overall.
