Product Description

Elvis stars in the timeless tale of an American soldier who entertains his fellow soldiers with his talented guitar playing as they face the enemy in war-torn West Germany. Eager to open a nighclub in the States after his tour of duty, Elvis takes part in a wager to raise the money he needs. Juliet Prowse co-stars as Elvis' romantic interest.

From Amazon.co.uk

After Elvis Presley got out of the army in 1960, he was instantly ushered into G.I. Blues, a Paramount movie about an Oklahoma singer who (surprise) gets out of the army and wants to open a club. Making a potentially lucrative bet that he can seduce a cabaret singer (Juliet Prowse), Elvis instead falls in love. Leaving behind his rockabilly roots for a slicker image better suited to early 60s pop, the Elvis of this movie is the one who made almost 30 more just like it. The songs include "G.I. Blues", "It's Not Good Enough for You," "Tonight Is So Right for Love" and "Wooden Heart". It's directed by Norman Taurog, a studio veteran who made his first film in 1928 and worked many times with Presley. --Tom Keogh

This is a great movie and a firm favourite with fans - and was Hollywood's fantasy interpretation of Elvis Presley's army stint in Germany!

Oh, if only life was like that!!

Elvis had released his best movies between 1956 and 1962, and this 1960 musical is one of the more entertaining, and certainly ranks with his best ever.

Elvis as GI Tulsa Mclain takes on a bet to help solve his financial problems. The bet involves wooing the heart of a hot but tough cabaret dancer (Juliet Prowse.) The job at hand however is made more difficult by the assistance of his army buddies - and complicated further by a hungry baby. You'll see what I mean when you watch the film.

The production has a wonderful setting and cast as well as a great soundtrack, with the endearing 'WOODEN HEART' as the world famous standout hit.

Together with Blue Hawaii, this is Elvis' best film of the 1960s, and is essential for your collection. I guarantee you will watch it again and again.

Highly recommended.

This was the first film I saw when courting - giving my age away. I've always believed it to be the best of Elvis' films, and have enjoyed watching it again.

GI Blues was Elvis first post-army flick, and is a million miles away from King Creole.
That is not necessarilly a bad thing, as this easy going musical romp features some nice tunes, good acting and some very fun scenes.
Check out the scene where Tulsa (Elvis) and his band are singing in a bar, and a German soldier says 'I'd rather hear the real thing.' He promptly puts Elvis' 'Blue Suede Shoes' on the jukebox, resulting in a fight.
This is a fun film, not near Elvis beat, but very good and enjoyable.

Elvis takes part in a bet to raise enough money to open a nightclub when he gets out of the army. The wager - He has to spend a whole night with Juliet Prowse, a nightclub dancer (good dance routine)who is "icy" within and "hot" without. As things turned out Elvis falls in love with her but watch out for the baby sitting bit and the lullaby - quite a different routine!

The youtube generation knows what to do: present only the production numbers - Elvis sings and swings up a storm on the Classically-based TONIGHT IS SO RIGHT FOR LOVE, the rocking SHOPPIN' AROUND, a fun remake of BLUE SUEDE SHOES, and a fast number, and FRANKFURT SPECIAL, with a real Scotty Moore solo. His voice positively soars...too bad they did not record the soundtrack back in Nashville, where ELVIS IS BACK was completed...using a professional microphone.

Elvis turned down a chance to go into Entertainment Services while in the military, so this bland comic book of a movie could not have shook up him up.

As usual, the Director had a chance to create some real dramatic tension, but succumbed to the Presley aura like any of his hypnotized subjects: never have the romantic interest dislike him *too* much. Juliette Prowse just cannot stay made at the new grinnin' Elvis for even two seconds. So, instead of showing some character development on both parts, on the part of the sexy cabaret dancer and the G.I. from Texas, wide-eyed in Europe, we just get... "didja ever!". Aw, shucks. END.

The King returns to movie making! Tulsa MacLean (Elvis) is a soldier and singer trying to raise funds with his buddies to open a club back home, enter German dancing sensation and love interest Juliet Prowse and let the mayhem begin. Tanks, guns, guys & girls and a certain Punch & Judy show make this a must see for anyone interested in Elvis Presley the actor. A great soundtrack including Wooden Heart, Pocketful Of Rainbows and Didja Ever. Elvis is clean cut, slim and repackaged having been serving in the U.S Army for a couple of years and such was the success of this movie formula that it continued for the rest of the decade. Great family fun.
