Trivia

After making a couple of films with United Artists, namely Follow That Dream (1962) and _Kid Galahad_, Elvis Presley returned to Paramount. Although the United Artists films had been well received by the critics, the box office was down on his previous Paramount entries. So, a conscious decision was made to return to the formula of the old Paramount films. See more »

Goofs

At least once during the movie, Elvis goes suddenly from being sockless to wearing socks (eg near end of "We're Coming in Loaded" sequence). See more »

Great! Great! Great!
11 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

I like this movie a lot, and I may be partial because I got to meet Stella Stevens and she's an adorable, outspoken lady. I asked her whether they used her voice in the scene where she sings in the nightclub, and she says they would not use her voice although she wanted them to (some books claim her voice WAS used). I won't tell you exactly WHY she says she wasn't allowed to, but let's just say she mentioned Ann-Margret doing them in "Viva Las Vegas" and say no more. Decent songs, some very annoying songs too, but I like the concept of Elvis as a singing fisherman, so what the hey?
