The running title of this movie at this time was Something For The Girls instead of Loving You. The title of the movie was changed from the original title of Stranger In Town and then changed to Loving You by January 23 1957.

The order of recording above is purely an educated guess based on the sequence of production numbers, as it is unknown exactly what was recorded when between January 21 and 22.

Elvis reports for filming on the afternoon.
