Local Sightings 2018 – It Happened at the World’s Fair

9/25/2018 | Northwest Film Forum

Film & Media Arts Capitol Hill/Central District

In this special presentation of Elvis’ film foray to Seattle, the hip-shaking hound dog plays a crop dusting crooner named Mike Edwards. Mike finds himself a pilot without a plane after his gambling-crazed crony Danny loses it in a bet. In order to get enough money to get back their plane and get back on their feet, the two hitch a ride with a local apple farmer to the big city, where the World’s Fair is in full swing and an uncharacteristically sunny Seattle is blossoming into a veritable Metrocolor metropolis.
