Goofs

At 35 minutes in, Elvis visits the offices of Classic Cat Magazine. Signage on the wall reading "Classic Cat / A Landsdown Enterprise" appears next to a sexy illustration of a bosomy model. We then see the signage from Elvis's perspective, and now additional lettering appears out of nowhere: "CLASSIC CAT MAGAZINE" in block letters. Then we see the original perspective, and the lettering has disappeared. See more »

A Revived Elvis and some good songs
10 January 2010 | by rpm1950-631-966595See all my reviews

Nothing about the movie plot here, just the music and the newly revived Elvis. His sideburns were back, his body was slender and more muscular, looking better than he had looked in a movie since "Blue Hawaii". Michelle Carey is his costar, a buxom slightly kooky girl full of energy. There are only about three songs in the movie, but all are first rate, beginning with "Edge of Reality", which came out on a single as the flip side of "If I Can Dream", the single that came from Elvis' 68 comeback TV special. "Edge" is a very good off beat song that to many fans was better than "Dream" and helped make the record a double sided hit. The next is "A Little Less Conversation", an up tempo number that, as you all know by now, was remixed and re-released a couple of years back and became Elvis' 31st number one hit. Then there is "Almost in Love", a great quirky love ballad that is one of his better songs ever. This is a highly enjoyable movie and better than many of his others. See it.
