Elvis Presley romp with colourful locations, a serviceable (though silly) plot and some super ladies, including Stella Stevens who also gets to sing.
Poor fisherman Ross Carpenter (Presley) is chased by several girls while singing in a club to get his dad out of hock. A rich girl slumming by the shore may prove to be his answer.
Songs include I Don’t Want To, Because of Love, and Song of the Shrimp.
One of the King’s most energetic films – much better than the title would suggest and also featuring a genuine hit, Return to Sender.
The sentimentality is a bit glutinous, but there’s an underlying toughness to Presley’s character that is shown to good effect in some particularly well-acted scenes that also involve young Laurel Goodwin.
The costumes for the film were designed by the legendary Edith Head.
