Apart from James Bond is there is no other more formulaic film structure than that of the Elvis Presley movie?  Elvis is a near do well charter fishing boat captain Ross Carpenter with charisma to burn, at least with the ladies, but no money to spare.  He duels with his unsympathetic boss and struggles with his conscience in not wanting to take financial advantage of his doting female co-stars Robin (Stella Stevens) and Laura (Laurel Goodwin).  Elvis gets to sing “Return to Sender” no less, he wins his girl and by the end all is right with the world.

DVD visual transfer is fairly average with substantial grain and artefacts and scratches showing up but it is in a widescreen presentation.  Audio is in Dolby Digital 5.1 (remixed from a mono source one would assume) which sounds ok with other languages in mono through Dolby 2.0.  Music is the standard Elvis fare and no the title track was not covered by Motley Crue several decades later.

Extras are limited to scene selection, subtitles and dubbed languages.  Yes you can hear our beloved Memphis King speak in Italian, German and even French among many others which adds some value to those of a non-English speaking background.  No menu animation here though I’m sorry.    

Not a terribly memorable Elvis vehicle but these musicals have a simple if dated charm all of their own.  Keep it simple, keep it fun, Elvis is not Brando but has a screen presence that carries these fluffy films.  Enjoy it for what it is and you won’t be disappointed.  PS Check out the brylcream do on Elvis and remember the King is just a red blooded boy who cant stop thinkin’ bout girls, girls, girls.
