 Filming began in Sedona and Cottonwood, Arizona on October 9, 1967.

 Filming ended on November 27 of the same year, with a lunch that Elvis had prepared for the cast and the entire crew.


The film was based on the best-selling novel by award-winning author Dan Cushman and was directed by Peter Tewksbury for MGM.

 We can see in the movie an impressive Elvis, very tanned, with enormous sex appeal, playing a cowboy, a Navajo Native American.


For the film, 29 families, 140 people in total, from the Navajo Indian reservation very close to Tuba City, were hired as extras.

 It was his 26th film. An amusing comedy that opened nationally on March 8, 1968, and was ranked #65 on Variety’s list of profitable films of 1968.
