This film (written by Clifford Odets of all people) is one of the better ones in Elvis' track record. The women are all beautiful accomplished actresses, especially Tuesday Weld, Hope Lange, and Millie Perkins. Good story-line involving moonshine and other things important to most small-town Americans.
Not as interesting or involving as King Creole, this movie has qualities and showed that Elvis could have been a good actor if he wasn't doing tripe scripts all the time. This is a normal movie without unnecessary fight scenes or boring young actresses PRETENDING to think The King is a hot guy. Check this one out. Well worth your time for movie-lovers and Elvis fans.
