During the actual filming of "Fun in Acapulco", as Presley remained in Los
Angeles a Presley double was hired to dovetail his long shot scenes with
the rest of the crew while location filming was taking place. The movie
featured the Top 10 Billboard hit "Bossa Nova Baby" and reached #1 on
the national weekly box office charts a week after the assassination of
President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. The film would be Presley’s
last release before the arrival of Beatlemania and was the top-grossing
movie musical of 1963.
