One of the best portrayals of the sounds and scenes of 1957.
First,I am a fan of early Elvis material(1955-59). I believe this movie more than any other shows Elvis at his best. I know that it is dated but that is what I like about it. I believe he could have become a very good actor if proper movie projects had been chosen. Loving You is a time capsule that we will never see again. All give good performances in this picture. Two of my favorites of the 1950's are in this picture. Dolores Hart is great in her good girl role. Also, bad girl Jana Lund is great in her small part. She has been overlooked for her great portrayals of 1950's JD bad girls. I believe Loving You more that any film of its era has the 1950's look and sound right on!! I should know, I was there. 8 of 10 stars.
