Notes

This is a scoring session for the movie Frankie And Johnny.

It is possible that Donna Douglas, Elvis and Harry Morgan recorded the introduction to the 'Frankie And Johnny' routine, as heard before the first version in the movie, on May 19, although this could have been recorded on the movie set.

All timings in the 'Musical Breakdown' below are taken from the DVD release of the movie.

Thanks to DarkShade on FECC for providing information on the production numbers.
