I know that title belongs to Dolores Gray in another 50s sensation ITS ALWAYS FAIR WEATHER but it could also be applied to the incomparable LIZABETH SCOTT in LOVING YOU....that is if you can tear your eyes from ELVIS in his first color film. Aged just 22 during production this is like CRY BABY for real.....and if only JOHNNY DEPP was as handsome (haha). LOVING YOU is a very good 50s color pop culture film and clearly shows how the early Elvis pix are the best (also like KING CREOLE or JAILHOUSE ROCK) The Technicolor print is stunning and the enjoyable 50s rockabilly tone is perfect. The TEDDY BEAR number is sheer perfection: Elvis+ 1957+ Technicolor +pop imagery + the music.
