Released by 20th Century Fox in November of 1956, Love Me Tender was Elvis’ movie debut. This Western-themed musical was originally titled The Reno Brothers, but was renamed after Elvis’ hit single “Love Me Tender” reached over one million in advance sales. Love Me Tender was a fairly straightforward Civil War-era Western tale with some nice plot twists and some songs thrown in for good measure. Only four songs were used in the film and released on the mini-album LP in November 1956 by RCA to coincide with the film’s release. The songs included the title track “Love Me Tender,” with “We’re Gonna Move,” “Poor Boy,” and “Let Me.” Elvis recorded these soundtrack songs, that were used in the film, at Fox’s Stage One in Hollywood during three sessions in August, September and October of 1956. The title song was released as a single on September 28, 1956 and went straight to number one on the charts. Offered is a 16mm reel of Elvis’ musical numbers from the 1956 film Love Me Tender. While the reel has not been transferred, it contains approximately 10-12 minutes of film with sound. This was Elvis’ foray into Hollywood and the start of his successful big-screen career. This reel, with its early content, measures 7 inches (17.78 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The reel presents with little distresses. NM condition.
