    I have all of Elvis' movies on VSH and have seen them all. I have to agree with everyone that Harum Scarum is the worse of the lot. I didn't care for Easy Come, Easy Go and the only scene I enjoyed in The Trouble With Girls was when he sang (can't remember the title) but he was acting like an evangelist and was fantastic. He reminded me of Marjo Gortner? Elvis would have been scary as an evangelist in my opinion.

    I did enjoy his first three movies - even Love Me Tender, and Roustabout, Blue Hawaii and Charro. Other than those, I feel they were a waste of time. I can easily believe he was bored with making these movies.

    I'd seen all his movies by the time I was six. Fell in complete love when I was five. Elvis was my first crush, along with Steve Yzerman.

    I went to my grandparent's house every weekend, and the guy that took care of them used to tape them all from the tv for me. Of course, he recorded them at such a low volume the only thing you could hear was Elvis singing - barely.

    I didn't care, though. I'd sit right up to the tv and watch for hours, one movie after another. I just liked looking at him, even at that age.

    I've gotten a little more discriminating as I've gotten older (and could actually hear the dialogue!), but his movies were my first exposure to Elvis, so they'll always have a soft spot.

    King Creole, Loving You, Jailhouse Rock, Blue Hawaii, G.I. Blues, Flaming Star, and Kid Galahad are some of my favorites. And I actually like The Trouble with Girls, if only for the renditions of "Clean Up Your Own Back Yard" and the gospel song whose name is escaping me at the moment.

    For the last several weeks I've been crazily obsessed with watching TTWII. I watch a least one song from it every day, usually just before I leave for school in the mornings.

    I gotta give you that much , that is a heck of a song , a shining moment in what IMO was otherwise a hard to sit through movie. The guy made 29 movies, I liked 28 so I can't complain too much about the one I didn't when I have so many others I can watch instead.

    I'm with you on that Leroy. Right down the line, I agree physically he looked well, he sang well. Its the story that killed it for me.

    I have seen all the movies and I really enjoy the four 50's films, they were definately the best of his films.
    After the army, my favourites were 'Flaming Star' 'Wild In The Country' 'Charro' and 'Change Of Habit'.
    'Tickle Me' was another of the 'poor script' films, but worth watching for the comedy element... my fave part is when a knife gets thrown at Elvis, misses him and hits the door, Elvis pulls the knife out of the door to use in defense and is standing there ready to use it, not knowing that only the handle is in his hand... the blade is still in the door
    I don't know if anyone else shares my thoughts on that, but I can never think about it without bursting out laughing!! the soundtrack is pretty awesome to, due to the fact that it's full of tracks that were not meant for the movie.
    The worst in my opinion is 'Double Trouble'... terrible! for example: Old Macdonald, need I say more?

    sackofnachos, welcome to our forum. Apart from Elvis, I'm also a big fan of Steve Yzerman myself. TTWII is unbelievable, though I'm no fan of some of the fan interviews, his performances from that movie were incredible to say the least! Not sure if you've seen Elvis On Tour yet, but that was excellent as well. It was made in 1972 and though EP doesn't look as great as he did in TTWII, his performances were great.

    Thank you for the welcome, Joe Car!

    I do have On Tour and I love that as well, though not as much as TTWII. Probably due to the picture and sound of the DVD of TTWII verses the VHS of On Tour. LOVE the "Bosom of Abraham"/"Lead Me, Guide Me" scene.

    As for his EOT looks, Elvis seems really pale under those concert lights! Washed out, almost, and a little more tired. I dunno. I wish they'd put it on DVD. Great performances, for sure!

    I used to have the original VHS of TTWII (can't find it anymore). When I was little, I never minded the fan stuff; never really thought about it. I think the "special edition" is great quality, but after lurking around here, knowing how much they left out, it's disappointing. Still, I love it, just to be able to hear everything so well, and see it with such crispness. And I'd never heard "Just Pretend" before; it's become one of my favorite songs, along with his version of "I Can't Stop Loving You".

    ....All right, enough rambling.

    I've seen them all many times. I was was way too young for the '50s movies in the theater and I also missed some in the early '60s. But starting with "Follow That Dream" I saw them all on the big screen. Back in the days when going to the movies was an "event".

    My favorite film from the movie years of the '60s is Blue Hawaii.

    hi folks,
    I own and also have seen all the movies, I have to admit though that there is a few I can really do without and I hardly ever watch most of them, to list my favourites though is easy, they are:

    loving you.
    king creole.
    jailhouse rock.
    follow that dream (great comedy).
    stay away joe (great comedy again).
    flaming star.
    charro.
    wild in the country.

    The ones I cant stand are:

    harum scarum.
    the trouble with girls.
    double trouble.

    the remainder are ok and I can take or leave them, depending on the mood i'm in, cheers, rickster.
