In the musical film Clambake, Elvis plays the role of Scott Hayward, a young man who is heir to an oil fortune and goes undercover as a waterskiing instructor in order to see if he can win women’s affection as himself rather than as a millionaire. He is fortunate enough to eventually steal the heart of his love interest as the lowly waterskiing instructor. Clambake was Elvis’ 25th movie and was released in December 1967. The campy flick opened to mixed reviews since the film followed the typical Elvis formula at a time (the late ‘60s) when generational attitudes and morals were making a major shift following the “Summer of Love.” Ironically, this was Elvis’ last movie as a single man because immediately following filming, Elvis married Priscilla on May 1, 1967, in Las Vegas. Most production for the movie was done in Southern California with only stock footage of Florida being used, where the film storyline was set. Offered is a collection of twenty-nine (29) production-used medium format contact sheet with over 324 images from the film, a majority of which feature Elvis in a variety of different scenes from the movie. Each contact sheet measures 11 by 8 inches (27.94 x 20.32 cm) and is affixed to a canvas-type backing. The group is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The sheets present with minimal wear from storage. Near Mint condition.
