    Double Trouble (1967)

    DOUBLE TROUBLE

    Theatrical-Release: 1967
    Studio: MGM
    Director: Norman Taurog
    Producer: Judd Bernard and Irwin Winkler
    Film Length: 90 mins
    Colour/B&W: Colour


    Cast:

    Guy Lambert - Elvis Presley
    Jill Conway - Annette Day
    Gerald Waverly - John Williams
    Claire Dunham - Yvonne Romain
    The Wiere Bros - Themselves
    Archie Brown - Chips Rafferty

    Story:

    Elvis leads a musical act, working at a London nightclub, where one of his fans, Annette Day, falls in love with him.
    John Williams, her guardian, want to break up this "romance" and send her off to a school in Brussels, Belgium. What he doesn't know is that Elvis is leaving for Belgium to do performances.
    After Annette Day and Elvis meet up on the ferry crossing the English channel, they find themselves in a series of adventure and trouble, as they are followed by gangster, out to get back the jewels that are in Elvis' suitcase (which was switched on the boat) and three detectives, the Wiere Brothers, who suspect Elvis of being a jewel smuggler.

    Behind The Scenes:

    Elvis started filming "Double Trouble" on July 11, 1966 at the MGM Studios in Culver City, Los Angeles.

    The film was set in England and Belgium, but all scenes were filmed on the MGM backlot.

    The working title was: "You're Killing Me".

    In one scene, a Volkswagen drives into a Greyhound van, which is most improbable, as the scene was supposed to be in Belgium.

    Double Trouble reached No.58 in de Variety top-grossing list of 1967.

    Songs:


    Double Trouble
    Baby, If You'll Give Me All Your Love
    Could I Fall In Love
    Long Legged Girl
    City By Night
    Old MacDonald
    I Love Only One Girl
    There's So Much World To See

    Elvis takes mod, mad Europe by storm. He's mixed up with diamonds, discotheques and danger! I don't understand why so many fans don't like this film. It's fun!! Okay, so it wasn't shot in Europe. So what. That would have been a nightmare. No, it doesn't have a great soundtrack. But there's lots to enjoy. "Double Trouble"; Baby, If You'll Give Me All Your Love"; "Could I Fall In Love"; "Long Legged Girl"; "City By Night"; There's So Much World To See".

    Chips Rafferty is a great sidekick. John Williams is great as the sinister Uncle Gerald.
    Yvonne Romain was fine as the Femme fatale/accomplice. Then there's the Inspector and The Wiere Brothers. Fun...nee!! The only thing I didn't like in this film was Annette Day.
    If they were going to cast an unknown in the female lead couldn't they have found someone with a personality. Still, for an amatuer she's okay and doesn't spoil the film for me.

    Watch the film again. Go with the flow. Forget that all your "friends" who have told you that you should hate this film. Let yourself have a good time.

    A watchable movie, but the Wiere Brothers spoil the fun for me. As well as that annoying "Belgium" inspector "De Groot".

    Otherwise a movie that at least looks different from the other ones because it's set in Europe. (Though it was shot in the studio entirely).
    Some Belgium "double" (forgot the guy's name) took care of some outdoor scenes in Belgium.

    The songs are nice, with the jazzy "City By Night" being the best one.

    Well, Norman Taurog knows - of course - how to direct movie. The story is OK, Elvis is good, and in movie are couple of great jokes.

    5/10 in normal grading scale
    10/10 in "Elvis grading scale"

    I hope you understand my bad English

    And, I cut from the trailer "Old MacDonald" because I remember some one asked is this the Movie where is Old MacDonald (?).

    Hi I was talking with Annette day then we went for a drink, Annette was never an actor she was picked out working in a shop in london and was asked to do a screen test and past, she was the only english lady to star with Elvis and i have seen many off the priceless pics off her and Elvis and all so the things she as given me which hang on my wall.
    The film was one of the 60s norm which even Elvis did not care for the scripts.
    but it is something Annette can treasure for the rest of her life.
