Elvis Presley [as Flaming Star]


Walter Broes & The Mercenaries

In 1958 Indian story The Brothers Of Broken Lance was written, with film rights sold before the book came out. 20th Century Fox turned it into The Brothers Of The Flaming Arrow. Marlon Brando was casted for the main (Indian) part, with Frank Sinatra as his older brother. Two years went by with no action, in the meantime Presley replaced Brando and Sinatra naturally called it quits.
