Follow That Dream Movie Set Bridge

This is where the movie "Follow That Dream" with Elvis was filmed in 1961. An island was formed with sand next to the bridge where most of the movie was filmed. It has since grown from sand to scrubs and palm trees.

35 years passed before Elvis fans were able to rename Highway 40 after the largely-forgotten Elvis film, which was, according to Variety, the 33rd highest grossing movie of 1962.
