Elvis Presley made this film in a deal with floundering Allied Artists, in which he took a pay cut and did not record any new material in exchange for 50% of the film's profits. The film was a big earner, credited with saving Allied Artists from bankruptcy. See more »
While not receiving the same fanfare as some of Elvis' more renowned movies including Viva Las Vegas or Fun in Acapulco, this film is really very underrated and underscores the essence of Elvis flicks. Perhaps because Elvis is not cavorting with a well known star, such as Ann Margaret or Ursula Andress as in the aforementioned vehicles, this picture tends to always get underplayed. Most memorable is the ravishing English star, Ms. Jocelyn Lane, who absolutely lights up the scenery whenever she is around - what a stunner!
