Review

Our Score
Elvis films are basically unashamed fluff, containing songs and girls with curiously pointed breasts. Chirpy but very silly, this sticks firmly to tradition with Elvis playing the role of a mean, moody general handyman, embittered orphan and karate expert with a very large motorcycle. Barbara Stanwyck plays the fairground owner as if on autopilot, and this time the regulation perky boobs and drooling lip belong to Joan Freeman as her deeply smitten daughter. This is very daft, very immature and great fun.

Summary

A leather-clad drifter with a talent for all things tuneful joins a travelling carnival, and catches the eye of a co-worker - but her father is less less than keen on the relationship, leading to trouble. Musical, starring Elvis Presley, Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Freeman, Leif Erickson and Sue Ann Langdon.
