Roy Orbison in “The Fastest Guitar Alive”
Roy Orbison in “The Fastest Guitar Alive” The gentle-spirited Caruso of rock & roll has a gun attached to his acoustic guitar neck! "In case you're interested, I can kill you with this and play your funeral march at the same time," he informs an adversary. If it had made sense to put Elvis in Westerns, someone thought it would work for Orbison, too, but this campy 1968 release was his only starring role, since, shorn of his trademark shades, he didn’t have much chemistry with the camera or his co-stars.
