Elvis Presley’s movies grew increasingly weak throughout the Sixties, so that by the time this clunker was filmed he was pretty much catering for hardcore fans only. The songs are throwaway, and instantly forgettable – except for when they’re truly excruciating (when Presley duets with Elsa Lanchester, for example, and is called upon to rhyme the word ‘serious’ with ‘posterius.’). The storyline is beyond stupid, and looks as if it was made up while they were filming. The hippie aspects are embarrassing, although they at least can be blamed on the mores of the time rather than the bad and lazy film-making that plagues all other aspects of the film. And just what did Colonel Tom Parker do exactly to earn all those Technical Adviser credits on Elvis’s movies? At least there’s plenty of chicks in bikinis…
