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

In all the scenes at the hangout, there is a band playing, yet none of the times are any of the guitars plugged in. See more »
That tickles! Silly!
Oh, yes, but everything is perfect. The night, the mood and the girl. Oh, what a girl!
Especially, the girl! She's moonlight and she's - she's - she's quicksilver and she's radiant and she's lovely and, most of all, she's desirable!
I think I better go. It's getting late.

Strengths: Elvis Presley and Bill Bixby turn in stellar performances.
Weaknesses: Script and Nancy Sinatra My thoughts: Elvis is magical on the screen as always and I thought Bixby turned in a great performance too. I was only put off by the lousy acting of Nancy Sinatra who seemed annoyed with even being in the film if you ask me. The script was not the best and thus the movie was a little quirky without a clear plot. It does seem as though the whole movie was centered around throwing a few big names in the pot with an average script and expecting phenomenal results. No matter as the movie is easily carried by Elvis. he is as charismatic as ever and even with the lousy script turns the movie into an entertaining venue. You just have to love Elvis to enjoy the movie and fans everywhere will. I recently watched this movie again from my library and was thoroughly entertained.
