    Besides the "Jailhouse Rock" scene, choreographed by Elvis, it has some other classic scenes. Remember this?

    Judy Tyler: "how dare you think such cheap tactics would work with me", with Elvis replying: "that ain't tactics honey, it's just the beast in me" after having kissed Judy Tyler. Cool stuff.

    This one also has the benefit of some great co-actors: Judy Tyler, Mickey Shaughnessy, and a nice directing job by Richard Thorpe.

    Completely agree with you Sonny. He played Vince very convincing and cool. The songs are great too. Simply a great movie. Nothing more to say.
