Elvis Presley is in fine form as singer Rusty Wells, who is hired by Big Frank to watch over his daughter, Val, while on her first girly holiday. Much mayhem ensues when heart throb Romano tries his luck with the hapless girl, and Elvis et all have to intervene. Written by

When Rusty is backing the boat trailer up to deliver Valerie (and Romano) to the motel, the frames are segmented resulting in a jumpy image. This is because Rusty is actually driving forward and the film has been reversed. See more »
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 »

Hello? Oh, Mr. Frank...
[into the phone]
I just called Valerie and nobody even answers her phone. Where is she at this time of night? I'm warning you... if anything happens to my daughter, you're next engagement down there is going to be at the county hospital!

Although most of Elvis' movies were set in a world of total happiness and joy they were very good and were especially good when someone is feeling low. Girl Happy has some great songs and it also had a very successful sound-track. The main theme in this film is that a gangster hires a singer ( Elvis ) to look after his daughter on a holiday camp.
