When he finds out his boss is retiring to Arizona, a sailor has to find a way to buy the Westwind, a boat that he and his father built. He is also caught between two women: insensitive club singer Robin and sweet Laurel.
A singing rodeo rider hires on at an expensive all-women dude ranch and beauty spa. He falls for a pretty fitness trainer who is constantly threatened by a gang who wants her late grandfather's cache of gold hidden in a ghost town.
Elvis Presley sings his way around the race circuit as successful speedway driver Steve Grayson. All is fine and dandy until the tax return submitted by a wise-cracking Bill Bixby (as Steve's manager) is scrutinised by the IRS. Will Elvis be able to raise the $145,000 to pay his tax bill? Will he succeed with his advances to IRS inspector Nancy Sinatra? Will the songs get any worse? Well, you didn't expect the likes of Hamlet did you?Written by

This was the last of three Elvis Presley films in which his character is a race car driver. The first time was in Viva Las Vegas (1964) and the second was in Spinout (1966). See more »
When Elvis first parks his red car near the trailer, the car is only up to the grass line and you can't even see it in the next scene when he opens the trailer door and enters. However upon leaving the trailer, you see the red car as he exits and it is now completely on the grass, right next to the trailer. See more »
Take a real deep breath and put your warm red lips on mine, Just do like I tell you, everything's gonna be just fine, Kiss me nice and easy, take your time, Baby I'm the only one here in line, All you gotta do is just let yourself go...

Some Southeast Asian prints of this film include 3 songs cut from the American print: "Western Union", "Five Sleepy Heads" and "Suppose." See more »
Elvis Presley plays a race car driver that gives away money as quick as he wins it. His manager played by Bill Bixby loses race winnings by making bad bets on the ponies. Elvis now owes back taxes to the IRS and agent Nancy Sinatra is sent to collect or make arrangement for payment. The Charlotte 500 speed race is the answer to the problem. Win the race and win the girl. William Schallart and Carl Ballantine are also featured. Below par soundtrack does feature the gems "Let Yourself Go" and "Speedway". Even Miss Sinatra sings, regrettably. Sparks do fly on and off the screen between the racer and tax lady. Interesting, but no great shakes.
