Trivia

This film marked the end of Elvis Presley's streak of working with longtime director Norman Taurog. Their collaboration began in 1960 with G.I. Blues (1960), which was followed by Blue Hawaii (1961), Girls! Girls! Girls! (1962), It Happened at the World's Fair (1963), Tickle Me (1965), Spinout (1966), Double Trouble (1967), and Speedway (1968). Altogether they made nine films. The only other notable directors who worked with Elvis more than once were:

Richard Thorpe directed Jailhouse Rock (1957) and Fun in Acapulco (1963));

Gene Nelson directed Kissin' Cousins (1964) and Harum Scarum (1965);

John Rich directed Roustabout (1964) and Easy Come, Easy Go (1967));

and Peter Tewksbury directed Stay Away, Joe (1968) and The Trouble with Girls (1969). See more »

Goofs

At 35 minutes in, Elvis visits the offices of Classic Cat Magazine. Signage on the wall reading "Classic Cat / A Landsdown Enterprise" appears next to a sexy illustration of a bosomy model. We then see the signage from Elvis's perspective, and now additional lettering appears out of nowhere: "CLASSIC CAT MAGAZINE" in block letters. Then we see the original perspective, and the lettering has disappeared. See more »

A little less conversation, a little more singing would have been nice
28 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Live a Little, Love a Little was a departure from the normal Elvis Presley travelogues, and this off-the-beaten-track trend continued for the rest of his film career (four films). It's sexy with a more adult theme than usual. Even more unusual, it only has a few songs, including "A Little Less Conversation." I say, if you're going to sing four, sing a few more. It's a movie, it's Elvis, it's not a drama.

Elvis plays a photographer who meets a strange young woman of uncertain name on the beach. His life then takes a series of bizarre turns. Michele Carey is the woman, and she's not only beautiful but very funny as well.

The film is mildly entertaining. Elvis' real life pooch Brutus has a supporting role. He was a superb actor!
