Elvis actually was still dating Anita Wood in 1950, his sweetheart. However, she had become tired of the gossip about his conquests and reports that a new girl might be coming to him from Germany.
Anita and Elvis ended their marriage in 1962. Elvis was filming another feature in California at the time.
Kid Galahad is a remake from the 1937 movie of the same title starring Bette Davis and Humphrey Bogart.
Joan played Rose Grogan (the sister of a slipper boxing promoter) who sees potential in Elvis’ character Walter Gulick (an amiable small town wannabe mechanic).
Elvis wins the girl in the movie, but he fails to convince Joan to remain with him off-screen.
