Mike and Danny hitch a ride to the World's Fair in Seattle after the sheriff seizes their crop duster biplane to cover Danny's gambling debts. Mike looks after the driver's 7 y.o. niece at the fair, where he meets a cute nurse.
Mike and Danny fly a crop duster, but because of Danny's gambling debts, a local sheriff seizes it. Trying to earn money, they hitch-hike to the World's Fair in Seattle. While Danny tries to earn money playing poker, Mike takes care of a small girl, Sue-Lin, whose Uncle Walter has disappeared. Being a ladies' man, he also finds the time to court a young nurse, Diane.Written by
The "futuristic" car in which Elvis finds Sue-Lin asleep is a General Motors Firebird III. Designed with a titanium steel skin, a "double bubble" canopy, and gull-wing doors, it was one of the world's first self-driving cars, and could be driven remotely using a joystick device. The Firebird III was displayed at the 1962 World's Fair, in the Washington State Pavilion (now KeyArena), which was later the home of the Seattle Supersonics NBA basketball team. See more »
On arrival at the World's Fair, Elvis stores his luggage and guitar. The guitar case is not shown being pushed into a locker, since it would actually be far too long to fit. See more »
Hey kid, how would you like to kick me in the shin?
How would I like to kick you in the shin?
Mister are you drunk?
No. I'll tell you what, if you kick me in the shin I'll give you a quarter, here.
[Gives the boy a quarter and the boy kicks him]
Yeoww! That's good! Thanks kid.
[shaking his head]
Adults, they're all nuts!

Enjoyed this Elvis Presley film where he plays the role as Mike Edwards who is down on his luck and meets up with a sweet little girl named Sue-Lin, (Vicky Tiu) who likes Mike and he agrees to watch her while her uncle takes care of his business affairs. Mike takes Sue-Lin to the Seattle World's Fair and they take in all the rides and Sue-Lin also wins a huge doll which is larger than she is. Mike buys Sue all kinds of food at the fair and she gets sick and is taken to a hospital where Mike runs into a very attractive blonde nurse, Diane Warren, (Joan O'Brien) who puts the make on her and Diane quickly brushes Mike off. Elvis performs various songs which were not very popular and this was not necessarily a great Presley film, but the story was very cute and if you missed the Seattle World's Fair, you will enjoy all the photography taken at the fair.
