That Time Quentin Tarantino Was In The Golden Girls

Geek Dave stays golden.

As we continue our week long look into embarrassing moments stars would rather likely forget, let's turn to a man who's responsible for some of my favourite movies. Mr Quentin Tarantino.

Four years before Reservoir Dogs, a 25 year old Tarantino appeared as an Elvis impersonator on a 1988 episode of The Golden Girls. Honestly.

From about 4:40 onwards. Tarantino, third from left, back row....

Interviewed in 1994 for Playboy, Tarantino recalled the experience:
"Well, it was kind of a high point because it was one of the few times that I actually got hired for a job. I was one of 12 Elvis impersonators, really just a glorified extra. For some reason they had us sing Don Ho's Hawaiian Love Chant. All the other Elvis impersonators wore Vegas-style jumpsuits. But I wore my own clothes, because I was, like, the Sun Records Elvis. I was the hillbilly cat Elvis. I was the real Elvis; everyone else was Elvis after he sold out."
Yes, it "was kind of a high point". After that Pulp Fiction must have been a huge disappointment!
