Marvelous Movie Mondays!!
Guest curator: Salise Hughes
Our theme this month is Seattle Plays Hollywood, where we will look at a collection of clips from five Seattle inspired movies and TV series that impose a little Hollywood glamour and surrealism on my home town.
For the last week I saved what many consider the crown jewel of Hollywoodized Seattle, Elvis roaming Seattle Center in It Happened at the Worlds Fair. The film was apparently the brain child of then Seattle mayor Albert Roselline to promote the 1962 Seattle’s Worlds Fair, and pitched it to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer executives. It features a young Kurt Russell in his first film appearance, kicking Elvis in the shins.
