Probably my favourite "Elvis Girl"
16 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Elvis movies always had an "Elvis Girl" just like Bond Films have (a) "Bond Girl(s)" - In Elvis' case, Several Elvis Girls.

I don't mean Stella Stevens, who could stand on her own and has a great part in this film, I mean Laurel Goodwin, who was "Yeoman Colt" in the original Star Trek Pilot "The Cage"- This is probably the only feature film I've seen her in, and she is given more than just two lines to say. I think I liked her because she looked like a normal girl rather than a cardboard cutout like the girls in these kinds of films usually looked like.

Like someone else has said, if they would have just allowed Elvis to ACT, these films would have been a lot better, Elvis was actually a great actor, and the part Glen Campbell had in True Grit was actually meant for Elvis: It is too bad that he was not allowed to play that part.

I've actually seen one Elvis film - A Western, where he doesn't sing every 5 minutes.

This film is not as over the top as Blue Hawaii, but still it is inundated with Elvis Singing - Which I love, but there is such a thing as too much of something, when something is overdone, you want to run from the room, screaming, as if someone had scratched their fingernails over a chalkboard- This film does that on a lesser level than most of his others.

One interesting item are the two little "chinese" girls Ginny and Elizabeth Tiu with which Elvis sings "Earth Boy", whose sister Vicky played Sue-Lin in "It Happened At The World's Fair".
