Elvis and Nancy Sinatra, in the movie “Speedway”.

Directed by Norman Taurog, for the Metro Goldwyn Mayer .

Although filming took place in June 1967, ”Speedway” was released in Charlotte, North Carolina, on June 12, 1968. It ranked 40th on Variety’s list of films for the year 1968.

This would be Nancy Sinatra‘s last film role. And it would also be the last of Elvis’ Hollywood films, which was aimed at a youth audience, as his next films would focus on a more adult audience.
