Originally recorded on June 11, 1964, Elvis sings the tune “Do Not Disturb” in the movie Girl Happy during the scene in which his character Rusty Wells serenades his love interest Deena in a fruitless attempt to seduce her in her motel room. The offered acetate disc with Universal and Radio Recorders Division label is marked “78 / 2006 Take-36 / DO NOT DISTURB / 2:02.” The reverse of the acetate contains no label and only the red “Audiodisc” markings. The song, written by Bernie Baum, Bill Giant and Florence Kaye, was first recorded by Elvis on June 11, 1964 at Radio Recorders in Hollywood. Elvis left the studio that day frustrated after 34 unsuccessful takes of the song, leaving the band to continue recording instrumental tracks. The acetate measures 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.

The record presents in playable condition with only minor scuffs and scratches. Excellent condition.
