In 1957, Judy Tyler began work on her second and final film. She was chosen to co-star with Elvis Presley in his third motion picture, Jailhouse Rock. She would play Peggy Van Alden, a record promoter who persuades Vince Everett (Elvis) to make a record.
On July 4th, 1957, just 3 days after Judy had finished filming Jailhouse Rock, Judy Tyler and her second husband were killed in a car accident. Elvis' friends say that the tragedy was such a blow to Elvis that he never again watched the film.
