For reasons unknown, several of Elvis Presley's songs are slightly sped up, making his voice sound higher than usual. This is most noticeable on the title track. This error appears to have originated in the recording studio, as the RCA soundtrack album retains the sped up versions of the songs. A recording of "Girl Happy", mastered at the proper speed, would not be released until the 1990s. The explanation came afterwards that it was intentional and that it was supposed to give the title track an upbeat feeling that it lacked apparently in the original version. It has to be reminded that this soundtrack was recorded at the height of Beatlemania in June 1964 and that the record company tried to give some "extra-youth" to Elvis by speeding up the tape. Also, 1964 is the first year Elvis did not reach the TOP 10 with any of the six singles he released that year. 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 »
Where is she? Where's Valerie? Is she all right?
Yeah, she's all right but we woun't be as soon as Big Frank gets wind of this.
I'm not worried about Big Frank. I gotta find her and explain.
What have you got to explain?
Wait a minute. How come all of a sudden you're so worried about her?
[Rusty sheepishly looks at them as they all quickly figure out that he and Valerie are now romanticaly involved]
No... it can't be.
You mean you and her... him and her...?
The King is dead!

Playboy singer keeps his eyes on a mobster's daughter.
Elvis Presley formula movie at its best. Some catchy music, nice scenery and girls galore. Rusty Wells (Elvis) leaves the blowing snow of Chicago for the beaches at Fort Lauderdale during spring break. Rusty and his band are to guard a mobster's(Harold J. Stone) daughter(Shelley Fabares) without her knowledge. Boy sings; girls swoon. Best songs are "Cross My Heart And Hope To Die", "Puppet On A String" and "Got To Find My Baby". Cast seems like a party list featuring Mary Ann Mobley, Gary Crosby, Joby Baker, Jimmy Hawkins, Chris Noel and Nita Talbot. One of the most liked Elvis flicks. Soundtrack sold tons.
