Toby Kwimper: Sure. Whenever some pretty girl starts to bother me I just close my eyes and say, "One times one is one. One times two is two. One times three is three, and all the through to the eights. Usually, I only get the sixes and they get discusted and walk away."

Facts about

A pre-credits scene was filmed, which explains why Tobey (Elvis) used the ten-times tables, when he's with girls.
Singer/songwriter Tom Petty claims that he first became obsessed with rock and roll after meeting Elvis Presley and watching him act and sing during the making of this movie. Petty's uncle was a crew member working on the film.
Herman Raucher was hired to adapt the book "Pioneer, Go Home!" into a movie. The studio heads were displeased with the script he handed to them, saying that the dialogue didn't seem to fit the characters. Raucher told them that since the book didn't feature much dialogue for him to work with, he had to make up most of it up himself, and since he'd grown up in a Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, he had no idea what farm people sounded like. Raucher refused to re-write the dialogue, and an argument erupted between Raucher and the studio heads, with Raucher being fired from the project. Another writer was called in to re-write the dialogue for Raucher's script, and Raucher received no credit for the work he'd done. In 1963, the script that he had written was adapted into the play "Pioneer, Go Home!" Raucher recounts the story of his work on the movie and eventual firing in his book "There Should Have Been Castles."
