    I've always had a soft spot in my heart for this film as it was one of the first 2 Elvis films I saw on the big screen. Good script. Steady direction. Very good supporting cast. Very enjoyable soundtrack.

    Sue-Lin was played by Vicky Tiu, who is now the "First Lady of Hawaii" by virtue of being married to governor Ben Cayetano.

    Incidentally, her siblings Ginny, Elizabeth and Alexander were in "Girls! Girls! Girls!". They were all musically gifted children, touring the US and appearing in shows like "Ed Sullivan" in the 60's. I think they also made some records in the 70's (I know of at least one). Ginny now plays piano at the Sheraton Moana Surfrider hotel in Honolulu.

    This is Vicky Tiu as she is now...the little Sue-Lin!

    I found the picture somewhere..she seems really pretty!



    This is one of my favourite movies...really funny and Elvis is so sweet with that little girl.
    I also like the soundtrack, although some songs can be considered quite childish..as "How Would You Like To Be"...but they suit in the movie!
