The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Harum Scarum (1965)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Harum Scarum from 1965.  Is Elvis still the King, or has his crown been “shiek”en down? (Yes, I wish I had used that in the actual podcast!!)

Did Elvis want to be in this movie?  Is the “best” actor the one who is the most over the top?  Why does every woman in this movie want Elvis to buy her?  Just how creepy is the song and dance number with the little girl?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
