This enjoyable Elvis musical tells an entertaining story of Mike and Danny, two crop duster gamblers who somehow need to get to the World's Fair. That was never really explained, but that is where It Happened so we'll let that go. They hitch a ride with their friend Uncle Walter, who, as his name suggests, has a niece, a very cutieeeeeeeee Asian girl named Sue-Lin. After they get to the World's Fair, Uncle Walter unavailable to attend so f course Elvis takes Sue-Lin, where she wins a giant stuffed dog as big as herself, gets sick, seeks medical attention so Elvis can meet Nurse Diane at the World's Fair, where It Happened. Notable guest stars include a young Kurt Russell, and Yvonne Craig who was Batgirl in the 60s TV series Batman. You get to see Elvis spend quality time with Sue-Lin and sing her a Lullabye, and you know scenes with Elvis and kids are touching and heartwarming. The film may have been kind of an infomercial for the World's Fair in its day, or the Space Program maybe? After the fact, it is a pop culture footnote to it. Oh, and one more thing. If you really have to get to the top of the Space Needle right away and someone tells you to get to the back of the line, it REALLY helps to be with Elvis Presley in an Elvis movie. They let you right through!
