Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: At about the 45 minute mark into the film and after the "first" professional fight. Galahad knocks out the more intimidating opponent. The ref's count was extremely fast...but as soon as he counted "...ten" and waved his hands signifying the bout was over, the defeated opponent was hurriedly getting up after being "knocked out"See more »
Quotes:
Maynard:What's the matter?
Dolly Fletcher:Nothing. It's love in bloom.
Maynard:Goodbye. I've watched it bloom before.
Willy Grogan:Look, Dolly... this may seem funny to you but... the kid doesn't know about us.
Dolly Fletcher:I gathered that much. I can even quote you. "Rose, this is Miss What's-her-name. She just happened to drop by this morning." Were you so scared, you couldn't even remember my name?
Willy Grogan:Dolly...
Dolly Fletcher:What is there to know about us anyway? Am I a lady barber or something? They've got sex in the Bronx, too, so what's the mystery?
Willy Grogan:I'm only trying to tell you, she's only a baby... a protected baby.
Dolly Fletcher:Oh come off it! Babies aren't built like that. And besides... if you're such a blue-nosed puritan about your sister... then - - just forget it.
Willy Grogan:I just didn't know she was coming up here, understand? I-I-I just wasn't prepared.

One of Elvis' most mellower movies, 8 January 2001
Author: John Macaluso (johnnythefoxymac@yahoo.com) from Bakersfield, California USA

This is about one of the coolest and mellowest movies Elvis Presley ever made. The music that Elvis performs is as mellow as the background music in the movie. It's packed with love, romance, and action. 3 important elements that makes a real good Elvis movie. I'm watching it right now and I just saw the part where Elvis polishes of the two hooldlums that busted Charles Bronson's hands. Now Galahad (Elvis) is up for the big fight of the season against Sugar Boy Romero. Who do you think shall win? I can only hope Elvis Galahad does.
