Even though the film is set in Fort Lauderdale, Elvis did not film any scenes in the city (as was common practice in later Presley films). Primary shooting was done at the MGM studios in Hollywood, while the beach scenes were filmed in southern California. Only second unit filming was done in Fort Lauderdale. See more »

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.
