Viva Pod Vegas #015 – Kissin’ Cousins (1964)
We’re back with a brand new episode of Viva Pod Vegas, and we’re talking all about Kissin’ Cousins! (Hoo boy.) After briefly discussing how the movie passes Joey’s one ask of Elvis movies, we share lots of Elvis news before Mike vamps about Joey’s cats and then reads between the lines of the movie’s taglines. We try to make sense of Kittyhawks, discuss why Elvis hated this movie, and wonder why it decides to begin in such a misleading way. We talk about the Elvis movie charm NOT working (for once!), what “kissin’ cousins” means, and why this movie seems more pro-polygamy (and hornier) than his other movies. We look ahead to Harum Scarum, learn lessons from the titular song “Kissin’ Cousins,” and plan for the (long distant) future of the podcast. Also: Batgirl is back, girl.
