The Trouble With Girls - And How To Get Into It
Anybody else think that this 1969 movie is a delightful, charming and much welcomed change of pace film from the usual cotton candy the movie studios were serving Elvis up in during the 60's?
I think it is a much underrated comedy-drama that doesn't get the recognition it should do for representing this wonderfully transitional period in Elvis' career. There are some very memorable musical moments, and not just from The King himself. There is also another fine supporting cast and Elvis always seemed to be at his creative best with other great acting talents on the same set.
It appears that 'Clean Up Your Own Backyard' is a little too much of a rockin' blues for the time that the film was set in, but the song itself does work with some wacky camera work going on throughout. The gospel rocker 'Swing Down Sweet Chariot' does exactly what it says on the tin. And, to top it all off we have The King dressed in THAT white suit!
So guys, what do you reckon?
