starring Elvis Presley, Carolyn Jones, and Walter Matthau. 
Based on the 1952 novel A Stone for Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins, the film is about a nineteen-year-old who gets mixed up with crooks and involved with two women. Reportedly one of The King's (and Eye's) favorite roles.

"don't ask what that means"

RFW

* Inspiration received from
Poppies In The Field written by
Julian Cope

In Flanders Field painted by
 Robert Vonnah 
(1858-1933)

In Flanders Fields composed by
 John McCrae
(1872-1918)

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.
