The King Does Spring Break
Girl Happy Enjoyable light-hearted fun. A good movie by mid-sixties Elvis standards. Elvis’ favorite leading lady was Shelly Fabres and it’s easy to see the chemistry they had together. Most of the songs are very good, unlike many of Elvis’ movie soundtracks of the time. Most memorable to me is the wonderful “Wolf Call”. And this time the story seems to hold together, as Elvis plays an actual professional singer, rather than a his typical race car driver or daredevil who also sings. His group, which appears regularly in Ft. Lauderdale during spring break, has been asked, after some convincing from Elvis, by his gangster-like employer at their Chicago club gig to keep an eye on his daughter while down there. Lots of funny scenes which keep things rolling along. Anyone looking to laugh and relax s little for 90 minutes should check it out.
