Ursula Andress and Elsa Cardenas on the set of "Fun in Acapulco"

Los Angeles: Paramount, 1962. Vintage oversize double weight photograph of Ursula Andress and Elsa Cardenas, trying out the very latest in bikini wear, on the set of the 1962 Elvis Presley film. With a mimeograph snipe on the verso titled "Competition for Elvis."

Mike Windgren (Presley) is a former trapeze artist suffering from vertigo ever since he accidentally dropped his partner during a performance. Working as a lifeguard at a resort in Acapulco, Mexico, he falls in love with social director Margarita Dauphine (Andress). With her help, he overcomes his fear of heights. Presley songs featured include "Vino, Dinero y Amor," "Marguerita," "Bossa Nova Baby" and the title song.

Actress Terri Garr has a bit part, her Hollywood film debut, and would have more bit parts in several other Elvis Presley films, those being "Kissin' Cousins" (1964), "Viva Las Vegas" (1964), "Roustabout" (1964), and "Clambake" (1967).
