Music wise you cant ask for better, and Elvis: acting is getting better, the dialogue is a bit corny in places but hey! this is 1957, what do ya expect, Lizabeth Scot , Wendel Corey especially Wendel Corey, this is Elvis; film but Corey steels the movie with his constant wise cracks and one liners, such as (Hey dog, you wanna go to longhorn with me?) and at the end (Lady maam, just call me Tex) I go into fits of laughter every time he says it, Wendel Corey was in The Rainmaker a year earlier, he was good, incidentally Elvis screen tested for that movie too, course he lost out but hey ya cant win em all! incidentally, guys i hope this isn't a spoiler more like a goof that was cleared up before the movie came out, in the Teddybear sequence its been said that it took 28 takes for Elvis to get it right!sign slapstck2000
