Definitely a film of the time
 from Chicago, IL,  Jan 15, 2013

I remember watching this with my mom, a huge Elvis fan, a few years ago. She said that of all his movies, this is the only one he actually did any acting in, and that made it her favorite. Overstock is the first place I seen it, so I ordered it for her for Christmas. The premise of the movie is great, both humorous and potentially dramatic. Today, the story and characters would be considered predictable, stereotypical, and dated--but that's just what makes this film stand out. This film was made during painful social transition and explores what were then considered 'gray areas' in human interaction in a very (at the time) edgy fashion. So, while it's dated in writing, plot, and method, it still serves as a multi-faceted window to 1960s America. Elvis's 'acting' is more accurately him behaving naturally in dramatic circumstances, not so much 'behaving dramatically.'
