Elvis dives into the inlet and swims across to the diving side. He got out of the water and his hair is combed. He climbs to the top and makes his spectacular dive. He climbs out of the water again and his hair is still combed. See more »

Latin rhythms and temperamental romance south of the border.
Richard Thorpe directed a previous Elvis movie, "Jailhouse Rock". Elvis plays Mike Windgren, who is running away from a family trapeze act accident. He is hired as a life guard and singer. Elsa Cardenas, a lady bullfighter, wants Mike's attention. The beautiful Ursula Andress plays hard to get. Mike gets over his fear of heights by diving off one of the local landmark cliffs. The eleven song soundtrack of Latin-beat ditties includes "You Can't Say No In Acapulco" and the million plus selling "Bossa Nova Baby". Better than average travelog.
