Big trouble for anyone watching...

Okay, so Elvis Presley movies aren't the creme de la creme of the
cinema, but "Double Trouble" really scrapes the barrel's bottom.
Despite it being 1967, the film seems to take place in the screwball
1930s, complete with a teenage heiress being followed by bad guys.
Elvis plays an American rock-and-roll singer touring smoky dives
overseas who is alternately in love with the 17-year-old ("18 in only
four days!") and the numerous other girls on the trail. There must have
been no shortage of nubile young actresses in 1967 who would have loved
a co-starring part opposite hot property Presley, so why the producers
picked sugary, harmless Annette Day is anybody's guess (Day looks and
sounds like Samantha Eggar's baby sister--with Deborah Walley's
hairdo). An embarrassing movie for all concerned, and arguably Elvis'
worst. NO STARS from ****

DVD was made from bad master
cealban-1 from United States

I do not know if other copies are as bad as mine, but My copy of this
move has areas in it that the sound is not in sync with the film, it is
very obvious that the film broke multiple times and jumped sprocket
even more. I was very unhappy with it, as it really detracted from the
quality. I would like to know if others have had this trouble, my copy
is a Warner Brothers logo ISBN 0-7907-4555-0, UPC 012569514126. Other
than that, I felt that this was a typical Elvis movie, Annette Day is
certainly cute, but I have never seen an Elvis movie that did not have
beautiful women in it. The thought of the King driving a Volkswagen Bug
is hilarious, but having the sync problems is a true shame.

Falling Down Drunk
wes-connors from Los Angeles

Elvis Presley plays an alcoholic singer trying to avoid being seduced
by underage heiress Annette Day. Ms. Day's uncle is as after her as she
is after Elvis. I enjoyed most of the music performed by Elvis in this
one. "Long Legged Girl", "City by Night", and "Double Trouble" are good
songs; they give the film a nice Swinging Sixties feel. Problem is, you
also have to sit through Elvis singing "Old McDonald had a farm
Mr. Presley's perpetual stated of being "wasted" during this film makes
his drunk scenes believable, reminding me of Dudley Moore in "Arthur".
I'm not sure how much of this was an act, though. I'm guessing Elvis is
supposed to be sober-looking sometimes; if so, there should have been
some sort of "intervention" by Presley's family and friends after
viewing this film. Leon Askin (from "Hogan's Heroes") leads a fun
cast/crew supporting Elvis. If it could have been re-worked as a
surreal "Arthur", the movie might have worked.
