As influenced by "Beatlemania" and "The British Invasion of 1964", rock groups were the latest trend, putting many solo performers at a disadvantage. With the box-office success of A Hard Day's Night (1964) and the expected success of Help! (1965), three band member buddies--played by Gary Crosby, Jimmy Hawkins and Joby Baker--were added to to the plot in order to enhance the film's appeal to a "newer' generation of rock fans and "teenyboppers".

When Elvis is on the beach playing the intro to "Do the Clam," the sound is clearly from an electric guitar, but when Elvis is shown playing the guitar, it's a regular acoustic guitar, which sounds nothing like an electric. See more »

Enjoyable light-hearted fun. A good movie by mid-sixties Elvis standards. Elvis' favorite leading lady was Shelly Fabres and it's easy to see the chemistry they had together. Most of the songs are very good, unlike many of Elvis' movie soundtracks of the time. Most memorable to me is the wonderful "Wolf Call". And this time the story seems to hold together, as Elvis plays an actual professional singer, rather than a his typical race car driver or daredevil who also sings. His group, which appears regularly in Ft. Lauderdale during spring break, has been asked, after some convincing from Elvis, by his gangster-like employer at their Chicago club gig to keep an eye on his daughter while down there. Lots of funny scenes which keep things rolling along. Anyone looking to laugh and relax s little for 90 minutes should check it out.
