Product Description

Warner Home Video commemorates the 30th anniversary of "The King’s" passing with a collector’s Limited Edition 11-Disc box set and four Special Edition and Deluxe DVD releases, one of which is the iconic film Viva Las Vegas.

In this 1964 hit, Elvis plays race-car driver Lucky Jackson, who arrives in Las Vegas for an upcoming Grand Prix race. Lucky's car needs a new engine, so he gets a waiter job at a casino and starts working his crooning charms on Rusty Martin (Ann-Margret). The chemistry between the two actors makes it easily the most electrifying pairing Elvis ever had on-screen. Viva Las Vegas is one of the Elvis films that stands the test of time, when the legend was at his peak. For this Special Edition, the film is digitally re-mastered with exceptional sound and includes bonus features.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva Las Veagas;Viva Las Elvis 8 Jun 2011
By Bunny
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is Elvis at his singingist, hip-swinging best and the rapport between him and Ann-Margaret shows how much both of them really enjoyed making this film. They really lit the screen up and I would not have been surprized if the film had burst into flame, such was the chemistry between the two actors. It was also good to see the bonus article on Elvis in Vegas. All in all an excellent production and welll worth the purchase price. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Commentary by Steve Pond is really good-I learnt a huge amount.Apparently there should have been 3 Duets with Ann Margaret but Col Parker got so nervous about how good she was and how much the camera loved her that he got 2 cut out so it was clearly an 'Elvis Movie' which I think was very shortsighted and I think it suffers as a result. It would have been much better to keep her challenging him as he performs better with a performer with similar charisma and presence and is then less complacent in performance I feel. Certainly the scenes with them both in are good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Viva the King and Annie. 28 Mar 2011
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Elvis Presley movies, by and large, aren't very good. Thirty one feature length pictures he made, of which arguably only half a dozen are jointly watchable and entertaining. But even the stinkers have fans, and not just fans of the King in general, also cinema fans happy to embrace the cheese and kind of just run with it. Yet to totally dismiss Presley's input into the world of cinema is doing a disservice to the small number of movies he made that actually hold up well under scrutiny. One such film is Viva Las Vegas. A film that is of course a frothy hip shaking colourful bonanza, but one that also shows that given a quality co-star to work off, Presley had it in him to move successfully away from the cash cow dirge that his manager Colonel Tom Parker was binding him to.

The plot sees Presley as race car driver "ucky Jackson" who arrives in Vegas for the Grand Prix that is being held there. But his car is in need of engine repair and he just hasn't got the money to fix it. Taking a job as a waiter, things are further complicated when he meets sexy pool attendant/dance teacher Rusty Martin {Ann-Margret}. Not only is she spurning his advances, but he has a rival for Rusty's affection; Count Elmo Mancini (Cesare Danova), who is also a fellow race driver and is set on winning the Grand Prix himself.

That's really all there is to it, plot simplicity at its finest. Naturally the film is an excuse for Presley to chase the girl, sing some tunes and become a race car hero too. But Viva Las Vegas has a real fun quality that is so lacking in most of his other musicals, it's vibrant, savvy and, yes, sexy. Due in no small part to the chemistry between Presley and Margret.
