When I first saw this film in 1969 I wondered if I was actually seeing an Elvis movie at all. It seemed ages before he appeared, and then only as a peripheral figure that flitted in and out of the action. But when he did appear - oh wow, did he look handsome! Slim and trim in a white suit and with his hair flopping nicely - ooooer! It was enough to make a girl come over all unnecessary!

It had been years since I'd seen it but bought it to complete my Elvis collection of films. Because it's not got enough Elvis in it, I'm giving it four stars and not five. It often gets panned as one of Elvis' worst movies but, actually, it's really not that bad.

There's a decent plot, with a fairly adult theme. (Boss man takes advantage of poor sad shop assistant and gets murdered for his trouble.) Dabney Coleman as the deeply unpleasant shop owner is brilliant. There are some very funny one liners, mostly delivered by Marlyn Mason, who makes an attractive and intelligent co-star.

"Clean Up Your Own Back Yard" is a great song and Elvis looks great singing it. However, it was obviously filmed by the 1960s equivalent of a techno nerd with his baseball cap on backwards because the camera angles are enough to make you dizzy.

Interesting to see a 1969 film about the travelling chautauqua shows of the 1920s in America. From the 2010 point of view, it's nostalgia for the 1960s viewing nostalgia for the 1920s.

i saw a small part of this film on the vhs--he touched me the gospel music of elvis and in that clip he really enjoys himself (check out his happy dance)
and that alone is enough to buy this film.

What a diabolical film, and to think the King was reduced to act in such films, is pathetic! Elvis, was such a fine actor, and he had proved it by making such films like King Creole, Loving You, G.I. Blues, but this film??

It is such a shame that Elvis had to act in such a film, which has no substance,a very thin story line, songs which are best forgotten, and the indignity of Elvis even though billed as the main star, has a miniscule role!

Only if you have a couple of hours to waste should this film be watched!

The Trouble With Girls [DVD] Closer to completing my collection of Elvis movies and before says, it looks as though Amazon supplied all of them, you would be wrong, the other in the past had supplied some, but then began turning negative, this I did not like as I had spent over the years quite an amount of money with them. Amazon have a great principal which is something similar to this "from little acorns, do great oaks grow",I admire the service and effort put into every aspect of their business, which means everybody that works for them is a vital part in their overall working strategy, in order to keep their customers.
