Publicity still for
The last of the four films Elvis Presley made for United Artists.
Elvis in the role of Scott Heyward.
"CLAMBAKE" is set in Florida. However, only some second-unit stock footage was shot there. The rest of the movie was filmed entirely in Southern California creating bloopers in the film. The California mountains in the background look completely out of place for a movie supposedly set in Florida. Images of California oil fields don't line up with the non-existent oil fields in Florida. Take a close look at the boats in the boat garage. Their registration numbers all start with "CF" (California registration) and not "FL" for Florida. The last of the four films Elvis Presley made for United Artists.

BACK TO MOVIE DIRECTORY
Oil fortune heir, Scott Heyward (played by Elvis Presley), decides to take a little vacation in Florida. While stopping for gas he meets a water-ski instructor, Tom Wilson (played by Will Hutchins). They discuss what it would be like to be in each other's shoes and decide to trade identities.
While at the resort the real Scott Heyward falls for a golddigger, Dianne Carter (played by Shelley Fabares), who's hunting for a rich man. While he spends his days teaching water-skiing and trying to convince Dianne to show interest in him as an ordinary guy, he also convinces boat builder, Sam Burton (played by Gary Merrill), to allow him to rebuild his boat which lost the annual Orange Bowl Race.
