LIVE A LITTLE, LOVE A LITTLE
Director: Norman Taurog
Producer: Douglas Laurence
Film Length: 90 mins
Greg - Elvis Presley
Bernice - Michele Carey
Mike Landsdown - Don Porter
Penlow - Rudy Vallee
Elvis plays a young photographer with two jobs: one as a photographer for a conservative publisher, Rudy Vallee, and one as photographer for a girlie magazine, published by Don Porter.
It's funny seeing Elvis running around, up and down staircases to divide his time between the two jobs.
Michele Carey plays a weird but beautiful model who wants a serious relationship with Elvis.
Despite the fact the story isn't that great, this movie is fun to watch. The soundtrack is very nice as well.
Behind The Scenes:
The screenplay was based on Dan Greenburg's novel "Kiss My Firm But Pliant Lips".
This was also a working title for this movie.
Vernon Presley appears in this movie, as an extra sitting at a table.
Albert, the great Dane, was played by Brutus, one of two dogs actually owned by Elvis.
Almost In Love
Edge Of Reality
A Little Less Conversation

i really like this film,always have .i think it has something to do with michelle carey co-staring.but seriously i think the songs are great and elvis never looked better
LETS BE FRIENDS!
this is one of my least favourite elvis film. he looks great but apart from edge of reality i feel really embarrassed for him. the woman is soo annoying and i find the plot ridiculous. if it didnt have elvis in i would throw it in the bin... but he makes it ok to watch. the only other film i disliked nearly as much was double trouble. i love him...
One of my favorite
Very enjoyeble, fun, great songs , and Elvis looks great with his suits!

The Little Less Conversation Video Clip was surely one of the best ones that I have seen. Really loved and enjoyed it.... thanks for posting it. Dovey
Get Him, get him~~Hot D*** ~~ he's a Squirrel!
You're welcome, Dovey...
I'm happy you enjoyed it!
You're both welcome, Sonny and Elvis-fan!
I'm happy you liked it! It's a great song!
This has to be one of the worst movies Elvis made. Aside from the songs, I thought it was terrible. Elvis looks like he's half embarrassed to be in it, and half fumbling his way through a non existent plot. Michele Carey was his worst female co-star by far....I'd rather watch Shelley Fabares, Nancy Sinatra, or Ann-Margaret any day. Her character is ridiculous and has no depth to it.....at least the characters played by the other female co-stars I mentioned had some spunk and vitality to them. The best and certainly the most redeeming aspects of the film are "Edge Of Reality" and "A Little Less Conversation". Excluding "The Trouble With Girls (And How To Get Into It)", this is my least favorite movie.
Michelle Carey according to what you have explained, didn't have a lot of acting experience. I think the folks who made the movie hired her because she had a nice body. Elvis and Shelley made a much more handsome couple I think. And she was much more talented.
I thought Nancy Sinatra was great. I was always kind of disappointed that she and Elvis didn't do another movie.....especially with her popularity at the time. As for Ann-Margaret, what "dramatics" has she displayed over the years about Priscilla and Elvis?
"Edge Of Reality" was indeed a classic....and was about as far as Elvis got into the field of pyschedlia......lol......excluding maybe "High Heel Sneakers". I'd love to find pics of him in that silver suit from the "Edge Of Reality" sequence though!

Okay, it's late & I'm NOT a night person, so if I'm asking an obvious question, forgive me & be kind! LOL Is this movie on DVD yet? I'd love to add it to my fast-growing collection.
I want to buy me this movie soon. It sound very nice. And I?ve seen a picture of the movie, where Elvis is showering. That?s an other reason why I really want to see that movie. And because of the nice songs.
I love Elvis ♥
I actually quite like this movie, its great if you're looking for a bit of escapism from reality!! Who cares if the plot isnt fantastic, we can take some time out from real-life and just watch Elvis cavort around with cameras, big dogs and lots of cool suits! Personally thats my kind of film!!!!! And wasn't he just gorgeous!
Life is beautiful, enjoy every second of it!! And don't forget to love!!
I saw this for the first time the other week, I enjoyed it
