Most Elvis flicks were pretty lame but this one is at the bottom of the stack. The few good things are the women - cute Dodie Marshall (who made two Elvis films), Diane McBain (Claudelle English), Deborah Walley, and Shelley Fabares who always lights up the screen. Carl Betz who played Fabares' Dad on The Donna Reed Show on TV is also in it.
