Flippy, Real Flippy: 'Jailhouse Rock' at 60

One of Elvis’ earliest and most prolific pop culture-changing moments happened 60 years ago this month: “Jailhouse Rock” was released on November 8, 1957. “Jailhouse Rock” was Elvis’ third movie, but thanks to the electrifying dance scene, Elvis’ leading man status and the iconic inmate costume, the film is one of the most famous Presley pictures.

Elvis Week Day 7 - The Guest House and Shop-A-Thon, Part Two
