Elvis Presley's Belgian adventure

Guy Lambert is a talented singer who has a lot of success in a London nightclub. The young heiress Jill Conway falls for Guy's charm and that, to the great despair of her guardian, uncle Gerald Waverly. He sends Jill to a boarding school in Brussels, not knowing that Guy also heads to Belgium for a singing assignment. On the boat the two meet again and this is the beginning of the love story of 'Double trouble', the movie that brought Elvis Presley to Belgium.


In a way that is, because Elvis Presley never traveled to Belgium for real, the movie was completely shot in a hollywood studio. Locations in Antwerp, Bruges and Brussels were built inside that studio. Pre Recorded film scenes with stand ins were later edited in the movie.


Double Trouble, Elvis Movie #24 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer 1967.
