The soundtrack album for this movie is not only Elvis Presley's most successful chart album, but it is also the #1 album overall for 1961. "Blue Hawaii" spent 20 consecutive weeks at the #1 spot on Billboard Top LPs chart in 1961-1962 (a record to be broken only in 1977 by Fleetwood Mac's "Rumors" album), and it stayed on the charts for 79 weeks.

When Chad comes to a screeching halt on the beach, when he is trying to save the girl's life, the sound of tires on asphalt can be heard. He is braking on sand which would not make that sound. See more »
This is one of his all time best movies. The plot is great and so is the scenery. Young man who wants to make it oh his own. This movie also has a strong supporting cast with the lat Howard McNear, Joan Blackman playing opposit Elvis and the heralded Angela Lansbury. This was his best musical and second only to Charro! as his best. Unfortunately this movie and GI Blues (both good movies) were so successful that this became the formula.
