Mindless but sometimes fun film about a stockcar driver (Elvis) who must choose between marrying a rich girl (Shelley Fabares) or driving her mean father's car in a big race, which could get him a lot of money. Elvis sings nine songs in this movie and they're actually all pretty bad and they make for the worst part of the film. The movie story once again features Elvis involved and having trouble with various women but it plays out okay with a nice ending but the real fun comes from all the racing footage, which certainly looks fake but it's still fun. It's also fun seeing Elvis drive 100 mph without messing up his hair. The supporting cast are decent but Cecil Kellaway and Una Merkel steal the show with their few scenes. Elvis also gives a nice performance in the scene he does with them teaching them that being old doesn't mean things are over.
