Double Trouble is a 1967 American musical film starring Elvis Presley. The comedic plot concerns an American singer who crosses paths with criminals in Europe. The movie was #58 on the year end list of the top-grossing films of 1967.
Elvis was paid $750,000 plus 40% of the profits.
The film was known during pre-production as You're Killing Me.
Priscilla Presley later claimed that when Elvis was told he had to sing Old MacDonald Had a Farm he screamed, "It's come to this?" He was eased when told that the song would not be released on the soundtrack album. However, it was.
The film, his twenty-fourth one, was released on April 5, a mere thirteen days after his twenty-third, Easy Come, Easy Go. However, the production order was reversed; the former was actually filmed before the latter.
