Elvis Presley didn't film in Acapulco and a stunt double was used. Elvis himself was barred from entering Mexico as he had been declared as "persona non grata" by the Mexican government due to two incidents at the Las Americas movie theatre in the Mexican capital, one of them being a brawl between Elvis's fans and naysayers. The main cause was comments made by Elvis himself saying that he refused to perform live in Mexico, as he found the country distasteful as a whole and would've preferred to "kiss three African Americans than a single Mexican." Elvis did not in fact say this. It was reported that a Mexican politician started this rumour because Elvis would not give a private concert for his daughter and her friends See more »

I fully expected to not care for this Elvis travelogue at all, but maybe I was in the right mood because it wasn't so bad. I was intrigued by the basic idea that Presley's playing a former circus acrobat who once accidentally killed his brother who fell to his death when Elvis failed to catch him during their trapeze act. Ever since, he's been terrified of heights and finds himself working hotels in Mexico to try and work out his problems; he takes on two jobs, as a lifeguard and a singer at the Acapulco Hilton. He hopes to conquer his fears by diving off the cliffs, and along the way bumps shoulders with established diving expert Alejandro Rey (who became known as Carlos in THE FLYING NUN), and moves in on his beautiful woman, Ursula Andress. The sights are colorful, even if much of it was faked with rear projection shots of Mexico -- they actually look pretty authentic and it's hard to notice. The south of the border music works within the framework of the film, and is passable (especially "Bossa Nova Baby"). The real stinker this time is the hilariously titled "There's No Room To Rhumba In a Sports Car", but these pictures are musicals, after all. **1/2 out of ****
