    Elvis plays a young truck driver who is a great succes while performing during a political rally in the town where he's delivering beer.
    He's singing there because press agent Lizabeth Scott and bandleader Wendell Corey.
    They even talk Elvis into joining the band and by starting small-town appearances Elvis becomes very popular.

    Allthough Elvis is interested in the girl singer Dolores Hart, he's also very attracted by Lizabeth Scott.

    I know this is one of those films that I'm suposed to like because it's the young, Rockin' Rebel Elvis blah, blah, but I've never liked it. End of story.

    Love Loving You

    Great film, taylor made to capture Elvis' 50's persona as a Rockin' Rebel with a heart of gold. Apart from that, it was his only pre-Army movie filmed in color and was beautifully shot. We also get what is probably Elvis' most straight forward Rock & Roll movie soundtrack. Mean Woman Blues, Got A Lot O' Livin' To Do, Party....All EP CLASSICS! This is the closest we'll ever get to actually capturing Elvis ON Stage in the 50's.

    I haven't seen the movie, but the soudtracks is very good
    Without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend - without a song.'

    That's why he still keep singing a song

    I have some good memories from childhood with this one and the soundtrack is great. Maybe that's the reason I like it, but he is ultra cool in this movie and I find it very enjoyable.
    Got my family, my kids, my books and my music, I'm good, yeah, I'm good.....
