Elvis Presley plays Brunet Lieutenant Josh and his Blond "hillbilly" cousin Jodie. Brunet Elvis has to secure the family of Blond Elvis' land for an important U.S. Army base. The Elvises wrestle and stuff; but, they never actually kiss. Yvonne Craig stands out among the busty mountain women; later, she was one of Batman's TV Catwomen.
The fun in "Kissin' Cousins" is not in the situation; but in picking out the Elvis "double" in the scenes where they both appear. It's fairly easy to spot the fake Elvis. There are a lot of very well-proportioned women in bikinis running around and squealing; today, there are more satisfying ways to find that kind of entertainment.
I enjoyed the song "Tender Feeling"; but, it's actually the song "Shenandoah" with different lyrics. "Barefoot Ballad" is the most embarrassing song. The musical highlight is the song "Kissin' Cousins"; but, watch for the superior version at the end, not the beginning, of the film. The material in "Kissin' Cousins" would make one good music video. As a full-length feature film, it's shameful.
** Kissin' Cousins (3/6/64) Gene Nelson ~ Elvis Presley, Arthur O'Connell, Yvonne Craig, Jack Albertson
