I'm sure you are,
This review is from: Viva Las Vegas [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of Elvis's best movies. The songs are great and he looks great. It's a decent storyline about boy meets girl interspersed with some of the king's best songs, "Viva Las Vegas," "The Lady Loves Me," "Come On Everybody" and others.
The first view we get of Ann Margaret in this movie is something I will never forget. When she appears in the garage Elvis is working at she is simply mind blowing. She is wearing an orange top and little white shorts which show off fabulous, fabulous...I really mean FABULOUS legs. Her engine whistles, she says. I picked my eyes up off the floor and focused them again. Elvis and Ann look at her engine and he tells her he is a very caring mechanic. She looks at him, her blue, blue eyes twinkling, her pearly white teeth flashing. With an almost imperceptible incline of her head as a slight breeze lifts her long, lustrous red hair, she breathes, "I'm sure you are." I pitch forward in my seat, a blithering wreck! Are there really women this beautiful? For me the scene is still electric all these years later. Ann leaves and Elvis just goes back to his work. If I was him I'd have to have the rest of the day off, I wouldn't be able to concentrate on anything!
Elvis, of course gets the fabulous girl, (I'm not really giving anything away there,) and has a great time as well. I wonder if MY life could be like that? As I remember it was belting with rain when I left the cinema.
In this movie Elvis's character is called Lucky - now THERE'S an understatement. He makes you sick really, doesn't he?

I have to agree. I discovered this movie and Bye Bye Birdie just a few days ago, and have been wandering in a daze ever since. The voice, the dancing, how she looks at you... there are no words...
