Elvis never leaves the sound stage, 18 August 2012
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

In his career Elvis Presley did three Hawaiian based films for which he got a nice Hawaiian vacation to shoot there. But for Double Trouble which is European based, the King never left the MGM lot for this film. All the scenes in London, Brussels, Antwerp, and Stockholm were strictly second unit establishing stuff. He must have thought he was gypped.

And Double Trouble is not as good as either Paradise Hawaiian Style or Blue Hawaii, the latter one Elvis's very best. And he's not playing or courting twins either. Instead he's a pop singer on tour in Europe who gets mixed up with a pair of women. One is Yvonne Romain a worldly, but deadly sophisticate the other is a teen just days shy of seventeen played by Annette Day.

For reasons it takes the whole film to figure out why people keep trying to kill Presley. In fact this plot is quite serious as young Annette Day is in danger and Presley by his association with her. But this is an Elvis film so songs and comedy are added. I would say rather shoehorned in to fit the kind of films Presley was making. It's entertaining, but muddled.

As always, Colonel Tom Parker made sure that Elvis was surrounded with veteran film names and established character players. Chips Rafferty and Norman Rossington play an inept pair of smugglers and con men who slip a fortune in jewels into his luggage and spend the entire film trying one loony scheme after another to recover them. John Williams is Day's uncle and guardian, Leon Askin is a Swedish police lieutenant with the Wiere Brothers as his assistants.

Note the hair stylings of the musicians backing Presley up in his act. If that wasn't a salute to the British invasion and an attempt to steal a few Beatles fans, I don't what else you could call it.

Not one of the King's best
