Spinout (1966)

The King is back in his racing car, this time with co-stars Shelly Fabares and Diane McBain.

Freewheeling rock singer and racing driver Mike McCoy (Elvis Presley) has three beautiful women competing to get him down the aisle.

Cynthia Foxhugh (Fabares) is a spoiled rich kid used to getting her own way whose millionaire father, Howard (Carl Betz), wants Presley to drive one of his racing cars, Les (Deborah Walley) is his drummer and gourmet cook who believes her musical inclinations may win McCoy’s heart and Diana (McBain) is a bestselling author who is researching a book on the all-American male.

She believes she has found him, but McCoy’s determination to drive an experimental new car in a race poses a danger to the plans of all three women.

In the end, McCoy manages to marry them all off to different paramours and falls himself for his replacement drummer Susan (Dodie Marshall).

The 12-song album of the same title contained a musical curiosity, a version of Bob Dylan‘s Tomorrow Is A Long Time. It was the only Dylan song ever recorded by Presley.

The movie was released as California Holiday in some markets.
