It will be directed by director John Rich, who had already worked with Elvis on the movie “Roustabout.” Hal Wallis, had already had differences with Elvis in recent shoots, concerned about his image on the big screen, which causes him not to decide to negotiate a new contract with this company. Despite recording new films, no one notices the low quality of these as well as the similarity of the roles that Elvis must interpret. The artist’s frustration is increasing more and more. Another significant fact is that by 1966 alarm signals were already visible regarding Elvis’ film career.


Spinout” makes its national premiere on November 23, 1966 and will reach the #57 highest grossing position by the end of the year. The soundtrack with a more pop air fails to reach the top positions, remaining at number #18.
