About three decades before playing the hillbilly Elvis character's haggard mother in this film, Glenda Farrell had been a glamorous contract player at Warner Brothers whose credits included co-starring roles with many of the top drawer Warners leading men and the recurring title role in the studio's popular Torchy Blain franchise.

I think this is a good movie, it does what it is suppose to do make you chuckle and listen to Elvis sing. The cast is totally into the "backwoods characters" they play. Elvis himself (in a dual role) gives a great performance as the backwoods cousin Jody, a Jethro type character but a little sexier and a little smarter. The Air Force pilot cousin Josh is more like the typical Elvis role. Arthur O'Connell is great as Papa Tatem. Jack Albertson(from Chico and the Man fame)was also good as Capt. Salvo. The production was low budget and made in about 14 days. Elvis hated the blond wig. The idea here is fun. Nothing serious just 60's fun.
