Production Notes:

The screenplay was based on the novel Kiss My Firm but Pliant Lips, by Dan Greenburg. 

The newspaper office scene was filmed at the Hollywood Citizen-News in July 1968. Newspaper employees Joe Diannito, Russ Alexander, and Leon Brunelle had bit roles in the film.

The two-hundred-pound Great Dane dog, Albert, was actually played by Brutus, Elvis's real-life dog.

While filming in downtown Los Angeles, a pair of old ladies literally knocked Elvis to the pavement in their hast to get Rudy Vallee's autograph.

Live A Little, Love A Little was never released in Great Britain.

Vernon Presley had a role in Live a Little, Love a Little as an extra sitting at a table.


Albert was Bernice's' pet Great Dane dog. He slept in a baby crib.

Alice was the name Bernice gave to Greg when they bet. She told the delivery boy her name was Suzy and told the milkman her name was Betty.

Greg was born in the month of December.

Harry's favorite foods were egg rolls and hot dogs.

Purple Valley Dairy delivered milk to Bernice's house.

Mike Landsdown's girlie magazine was called the Classic Cat Magazine. It was located on the eighteenth floor of the office building.

Louis Pentlow's business was named RKC&P Creative Advertising. It was located on the twenty-first floor of the same office building in which Classic Cat Magazine was published.
