This film is such a contrast from Elvis' debut movie. Hair dyed black and allowed to show the raw talent that is parallel to his own meteoric rise to stardom in the music business. Elvis shows his acting potential and provides classic music like "Teddy Bear", "Mean Woman Blues", "Party", the rousing "Got A Lot Of Livin' To Do" and the title song. Veteran Lizabeth Scott and the adorable newcomer Dolores Hart play their rolls well and are not hard on the eyes. Scott sees dollar signs in managing the young singer. And also a way to make her long time boyfriend and companion Wendell Corey jealous. Hart is the girl-next-door type that seems ready to shed her innocence with the bump and grinding singer. This movie fills the bill presenting the raw, rough and ready Elvis Presley.
