Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas” Cut Scene Brings All the Feels


“Viva Las Vegas” is a 1964 film with glorious musical numbers starring Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret. In 1960, it was hailed as one of the best Elvis Presley movies by both critics and fans.


Elvis Presley’s “Viva Las Vegas” Cut Scene Brings All the Feels 1

Viva Las Vegas, Elvis Presley

Elvis played the role of ‘Lucky Jackson’ going to Las Vegas, Nevada to participate in the city’s first annual motor racing contest. Due to financial constraints, Elvis aka Lucky has to raise the necessary money for a new motor in order to have an edge on the said event.

The beautiful plot takes human form in Ann-Margret who is playing ‘Rusty Martin’ the gorgeous swimming instructor. In the hotel-filled flirtations and musical numbers, Lucky has to become a waiter working alongside Rusty. The complexity was further thickened when Lucky meets Count Elmo Mancini played by Cesare Danova who became his rival in winning Rusty’s love while also becoming his nemesis on Lucky’s dream motor race.

Deleted Scene, Ann-Margret

In this scene, we see Elvis Presley approaching and finally playing the piano while singing “Today, Tomorrow and Forever.” Suddenly, we see Ann Margret dresses in beautiful yellow dress entering the room.

Then cut to a group of other dancers where Elvis and Ann are envisioned to be center of the pack dancing and flirting with each other. We’ve also seen some other flashbacks where Ann and Elvis as Lucky and Rusty flirting with each other doing the fun activities they did like skiing and just plainly dancing to their musical numbers.

Apparently, this scene was cut from the final production as well as other Elvis-Ann musical numbers. Of course, we wanted to dig all those scenes but this special clip has a special place in our hearts like Elvis and his contribution to country music.

So do you think that this video clip should have been included in the movie?
