While Tulsa (Elvis Presley) is singing "Doin' the Best I Can", one soldier puts a coin in the jukebox and choose from the list "Blue Suede Shoes - Elvis Presley". See more »
In the opening scene when Elvis and another soldier are loading ammunition into the tank, the shells being loaded are much to large for the main tank gun, which was 90mm on the M48 tank. See more »
For those who do not know 'Liebe' translated, means love.
Oh, you don't have to explain that you a G.I. That's one of the first words he learns when he gets over here.
Ah, you too, Tulsa?

Silly and Naive, But Elvis, His Songs and Juliet Prowse Make It Worth
In Frankfurt, the G.I. Tulsa McLean (Elvis Presley) bets all the money his friends Cookie (Robert Ivers) and Rick (James Douglas) and he are saving to buy a night-club of their own in USA that his mate Dynamite will seduce and spend a night with the untouchable cabaret dancer Lili (Juliet Prowse). When Dynamite is transferred to Alaska, Tulsa has to replace him in the bet, but he falls for Lili and tries to call off the game.
"G.I. Blues" is a silly and naive story, being a pretext to see and hear Elvis Presley only. But I believe every fan of this great singer will appreciate his songs and his chemistry with the charming and sexy Juliet Prowse. This movie certainly is not a masterpiece, but is very enjoyable and a worthwhile entertainment. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Saudades de um Pracinha" ("Missing a G.I.")
