Elvis Presley plays Pacer Burton, the son of a Kiowa mother and a Texas rancher father. Along with his half-brother, Clint, the four of them live a typical life on the Texas frontier.
Flaming Star is a 1960 Western film starring Elvis Presley, based on the book Flaming Lance (1958) by Clair Huffaker.
A dramatic role, it is said that Elvis Presley gave one of his best acting performances as the half-breed "Pacer Burton."
The film's working title was Black Star.
Life soon becomes anything but typical when a nearby tribe of Kiowa begin raiding neighboring homesteads. Pacer soon finds himself caught between the two worlds, part of both but belonging to neither.

Ї The soundtrack was not released as a music album as the film contains only two songs; only "Flaming Star" was released on an EP to coincide with the film's release.
Two other songs, "Britches" and "Summer Kisses, Winter Tears", were originally scheduled to be part of the movie but in the end were not included.
"Summer Kisses" would appear on the compilation album Elvis for Everyone a year or so later, while "Britches" and "Cane and a High Starched Collar" would not be released until after Presley's death.
An early version of "Flaming Star", using the film's working title, "Black Star", was also recorded and not released until the 1990s.
