Good Brain Candy
21 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Everyone says Elvis made poor movies. Many people (like myself) who have never bothered to watch them through.

Yes, it is true that many of these movies would never have been made (or watched) if Elvis wasn't in them. It is also true that Elvis made these movies for money.

So what? Some of Shakespeares' plays like "The Two Gentlemen of Verona" or "The Merry Wives of Windsor" have not been seen as the finest in Englsh playwriting. It is quite likely that had someone else wrote them, they would have been long forgotten. As well, do you think Shakespeare wrote for his health? Elvis' movies may not have been Oscar material, but many of them, including "Spinout" are a nice escape from reality. We need this time to time. The songs are good, at work I think about them time-to-time, and the movies are fun. "Spinout" is a nice escape from reality.

One thing; I bought some Elvis DVDs, including "Spinout", and after watching them, I donated them to my library. Now, others can see them. Just a thought.

A sad note. Elvis sings "I'll Be Back". Sadly, most of us just have his songs, movies, and other such memories.

When I visited Las Vegas in 2004, I visited the Auto Collection" at the "Imperial Palace". I saw the Duesenberg that Evis used in "Spinout". It might still be there.
