“Pocketful of Rainbows” is from my FAVORITE ELVIS PRESLEY MOVIE OF ALL TIME: G.I. BLUES!!!!!!!
Dad, I video-taped my cover of “Pocketful of Rainbows” on your 44thWedding Anniversary with Mom this year! I saved this especially for your birthday!
“POCKETFUL OF RAINBOWS” is from the soundtrack of the 1960 film “G.I. Blues” starring Elvis Presley and Juliet Prowse. It is written by Fred Wise & Ben Weisman and performed by Elvis Presley. “Pocketful of Rainbows” is a lovely ballad sung by Elvis to Juliet Prowse on a cable car ride. Juliet Prowse contributes backing singing in the film version, but is not heard on the record. It was released on the soundtrack LP (1960). An orchestral backing was overdubbed on "Pocketful of Rainbows". An alternate take (2) was released as a bonus track on the soundtrack CD (1997).
