Joan Blackman has been seen in over 15 films and numerous television shows, including Gunsmoke and Bonanza. She also had a recurring role in Peyton Place and her character is the one who hit Mia Farrow with her car. But she had her start singing in San Francisco at the Fairmont Hotel and other spots around the City. She is one of the only co-stars to work in several Elvis Presley films. One of the scenes in Blue Hawaii is well known around the world, the Hawaiian Wedding Song, when she and Elvis marry. Very few actresses were allowed to sing opposite Elvis. Those few lines in that scene are the only words she was able to sing in his film, unfortunately. Ann-Margret and Juliet Prowse, on the other hand, had their own singing scene in Viva Las Vegas and GI Blues.
