On arrival at the World's Fair, Elvis stores his luggage and guitar. The guitar case is not shown being pushed into a locker, since it would actually be far too long to fit. See more »
Hey kid, how would you like to kick me in the shin?
How would I like to kick you in the shin?
Mister are you drunk?
No. I'll tell you what, if you kick me in the shin I'll give you a quarter, here.

Enjoyable but standard Elvis fare with Elvis girl-hunting and babysitting at the World's Fair in Seattle. Songs are a bit too cutesy, reflecting the shift in Elvis' image since his return from Germany. Fun story, though, and a fun song with Yvonne Craig. Douglas appears in a very early role as a kid who kicks Elvis on the shin -- twice. Lockwood is, as always, sufficient. Fans of Expos and World's Fairs (any others of us out there?) should be pleased to see so much footage of the excellent grounds and exhibits that graced the Seattle Expo.
