Nancy Sinatra’s emotional memories of Elvis Presley on Speedway set | Films | Entertainment


The musical action movie saw Elvis play NASCAR driver Steve Grayson opposite Nancy’s IRS agent Susan Jacks. Her character’s role involved being assigned to watch over Steve who had $150,000 in debt to pay with any future prize money from racing.

Naturally, this being an Elvis movie saw Nancy’s Susan end up falling romantically for The King’s character. The film, which was originally planned to star Sonny and Cher, was the last time Frank’s daughter ever acted in a movie. Now 82-years-old, Nancy has shared touching memories of her time on the Speedway set with Elvis, who died aged 42 in 1977.

Speaking previously with PEOPLE, she said: “I know he was the funniest man and probably the most serious man I knew, both people in one. He made me laugh so hard. And at the same time, he would call me late at night to discuss things like the ghetto, and his concern for people in the ghetto. I don’t know if that’s surprising. People who follow his life probably are aware of his sensitivity.”
