Year: 1972 Age: 37 Movie: 34th Not the best documentary out of the four (68, that's the way, aloha). It's a mix of concert footage, behind the scene footage and old stuff from the beginning. We see Elvis hanging out with his buddy's and with his Dad. Fills in a few minutes with photo's of… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 31 Elvis On Tour (1972)
Year: 1968 Age: 33 Movie: 28th Wow, a very different feel straight away. We are heading into the 70's here. Elvis plays Greg Nolan, a newspaper photographer, and the first scene is Greg driving along the road and then the beach in his dune buggy. Hair all messed up, not something you see in many… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 28 Live A Little, Love A Little (1968)
Year: 1968 Age: 33 Movie 27th Strange beginning, in that, there is a scene before the opening credits. The title track is really good, love it. The opening credits shows, what I presume to be, cameos by actual speedway stars (actually, I do recognise Richard Petty). Love the cars they are about to race. If… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 27 Speedway (1968)
Year: 1968 Age: 33 Movie: 26th Ok, so Stay Away Joe, is a very different movie from the get go. Opening scene is Joe (Elvis) chasing cows with his car, and boy does he look like he is enjoying himself. This movie doesn't really get good reviews and I don't think I have ever really… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 26 Stay Away, Joe (1968)
Year: 1967 Age: 32 Movie: 25th Clambake we're gonna have a Clambake! Mega soon-to-be-richer Scott Hayward just wants to be loved for who he is, poor Scott, it's not enough to be super sexy and have a great voice but he wants love too? So he comes up with the age-old trick of swapping places… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH DAY 25 Clambake (1967)
Year: 1967 Age: 32 Movie: 23rd (I've posted this one a little early...about 2 hours early, to sleepy to wait...I'm going to bed) Set in London and filmed in Hollywood. I was looking forward to this as much as Elvis was. I just find this movie has really missed the mark. I love some of… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH DAY 24 Double Trouble (1967)
Year: 1967 Age: 32 Movie: 23rd The songs aren't nearly as good as in the last film (Spinout), we are heading into the last quarter of the 60's and things are starting to change. The fashions, the outlook, the music, the people, the everything. I have alway adored the title song, and I don't have… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 23 Easy Come, Easy Go (1967)
Year: 1966 Age: 31 Movie: 22nd In the titles you even get a section called "The Girls", well I suppose most Elvis movies could have one of these sections for convenience. It starts with Mike racing through the country side and being passed by, another Elvis movie regular...Shelley Fabares. Unfortunately their relationship gets off to… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 22 Spinout (1966)
Year: 1965 Age: 30 Movie: 18th Really was not looking forward to what I can safely say is the bottom of the barrel. Starts off with Elvis playing an actor/singer at the premier of his movie, Sands Of The Desert. Even that movie looks unappealing. He sings Desert Serenade, sounds a bit too fast and… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 19 Harum Scarum (1965)
Year: 1963 Age: 28 Movie: 13th We open the title song, Fun In Acapulco, such a great feel already. Elvis is working on a boat with a troublesome young lady, (bum close up) when a band of seafaring mexicans happen to show up...I don't know why. E goes into town to visit the bar in… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 13 Fun In Acapulco (1963
Year: 1958 Age: 23 Movie: 4th Beautiful opening scene with the wet streets of New Orleans and songs about gumbo, which apparently is good enough to be in songs. Must find out what gumbo is...did find out what gumbo is and it looks pretty good. click on the above link for a recipe. Edith Head… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 4 King Creole (1958)
Year: 1958 Age: 23 Movie: 3rd Ah Vince Everett in trouble over a girl, who would have seen that coming. And those juke boxes are great for catching Elvis fight victims. So off to jail for you young man. Which is really good for us, cause we get a few good songs and Vince gets… Continue reading ELVIS MONTH Day 3 Jailhouse Rock (1958)
