Elvis used to sing some of his hit songs on the set, and would often suck helium from balloons to make his voice sound high and strange. See more »
In the musical number, "Clean Up Your Own Back Yard", the girl appears to change sides behind Elvis. Although there is a slight change of camera angle when far away from Elvis then close up, her move from behind Elvis's left shoulder to behind his right shoulder looks wrong. See more »
The Trouble With Girls was much maligned on its original release in 1969.However it has a strong plot, excellent cast, interesting direction and very good use of camera angles (very unusual for an Elvis film). What a treat to see horror maestro, Vincent Price, in an Elvis film! There is also good chemistry between Elvis and leading lady, Marlyn Mason. The pacing is quite slow but this is one of the few Elvis films which can be viewed in "film critical" mode. Sadly, by the time The Trouble With Girls came out, both critics and the public had tired of Elvis films. Yet it together with Stay Away, Joe; Live A Little, Love A Little; Charro!; and Change of Habit were a positive step in redefining what Elvis' film career could have been.
