Elvis Presley sings his way around the race circuit as successful speedway driver Steve Grayson. All is fine and dandy until the tax return submitted by a wise-cracking Bill Bixby (as Steve's manager) is scrutinised by the IRS. Will Elvis be able to raise the $145,000 to pay his tax bill? Will he succeed with his advances to IRS inspector Nancy Sinatra? Will the songs get any worse? Well, you didn't expect the likes of Hamlet did you? Written by

I really enjoy Elvis movies as they are just sheer entertainment and you can switch off and enjoy rather than having to think about everyone's motivation...!! Speedway is a good 'romp' - that's the word that comes to mind for me when I think of the movie. I don't' think it's in the same league as Blue Hawaii or Fun in Acapulco though.
Worth seeing 'Let Yourself Go' the number at the beginning!
I find it a struggle seeing films with cutesy kids in it and this has it's share but, again, not so bad that I would say to give the film a miss.
Being honest, I'm glad I've seen it for completism but whether it will hold in my memory a month from now is another matter!!
