Elvis is the son of an oil baron who decides to switch identities with a water ski instructor he meets and tries to find true love. Sounds hokey but is quite funny. There is a good supporting cast, Shelly Fabares and Bill Bixby are on form and the songs are not the worst although Confidence is cringe-worthy but then there has to be at least one turkey in every Elvis movie in the 60s.
Elvis looks a bit chunky but we can let that pass. The sets are not half bad and the script is quite good.
There are plenty of laughs in this one. And, of course, Elvis is fighting to win the heart of the fair maiden. Will he win - you just have to watch and see!!
I would recommend this as one of his better late 60s efforts. Light-hearted and easy to watch.
In Frankie & Johnny Elvis is the compulsive gambler. He was on a losing streak and on the advice from a gypsy fortune teller he swapped his blonde sweetheart for a red head for luck on the roulette table. Trying to woo his true love back he sang that beautiful ballad "Please dont stop loving me". She was not convinced and in a crime of passion she shot him.
