5.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Gem, 28 Feb. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Trouble With Girls [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The Trouble With Girls is a hidden gem, that is one of Elvis best films.
This is the full version, not the hacked up edit that has been slammed by critics over the years.
Elvis is Walter Hale, manager of a 1920s travelling troupe of entertainers who are encountering problems during a stop-over in a small town.
Hale's devil may care attitude, combined with a slump in ticket sales, a bossy shop-steward and now a murder blamed on a shifty card-sharp.
The cast is stellar, plus cameos from horror movie supremos Vincent Price and John Carradinen and Elvis at his coolest.
There are lots of excellent characters, especially some talented kids, a nasty shop keeper and his employee whom he is seducing and offering money for favours.
Check out the scene where Hale tries to seduce his female shop steward in the deserted big top. A box of fireworks accidentally go off, as he propositions her and suggest that they use a local girl for financial gain.
Hilarious as she calls Hale a dirty b@$%a~d and mother-f~**$r amidst a barrage of slaps and punches.
Some excellent music to. Elvis on stage singing the classic 'Swing Down sweet Chariot' with a gospel quartet. Plus the country rock 'Clean Up Your Own Back Yard' and beautiful scene with El in an empty tent, on piano alone.
This is just a pleasure to watch, one of my favourite films....especially when they try to sober up a drunk woman who.........well watch and enjoy, I highly recommend this.
