Shelley Fabares and Bill Bixby in a publicity photo for Clambake (1967). These Actors Clearly Owe Their Success to Elvis Presley: Bill Bixby — Clambake (1967), Speedway (1968). When Bixby appeared in Clambake — the first of two Presley movies he showed up in, with the other being Speedway, a movie which also featured the “acting” debuts of a bunch of real-life racing drivers — The Incredible Hulk was just a comic book character and even The Courtship of Eddie’s Father was just an idea in the back of a writer’s brain. Thankfully, Elvis was around to give America’s former Favorite Martian something to do while he waited. 11/15/2014 by Graeme McMillan.
