Elvis Presley Sings 'Wooden Heart' With A Puppet In ‘GI Blues’
Elvis plays a specialist in the Army who is stationed in Frankfurt, Germany. While out together with his friend Lili, they stumble across a puppet show...
Parts of the movie were filmed while Elvis was stationed in Germany, with the rest shot upon his return to America.
The song “Wooden Heart” became a hit single for Elvis in in the UK in 1961, but was not released in the United States until November 1964.
Written by Fred Wise, Ben Weisman, Kay Twomey and German bandleader Bert Kaempfert, it is based on the German folk song by Friedrich Silcher "Muss I' Denn Zum Städtele Hinaus".
Asteroid "10055 Silcher" was named after the composer.
