                  1956, After test audiences gave a negative reaction to ELVIS PRESLEY dying at the end of the film Love Me Tender, he was called back to re-shoot the scene. In the new ending, the King lived. However, the movie company decided to use a compromised ending instead where Elvis’s character still dies, but is seen in a superimposed ghostly close-up singing the title track.
