Let me......tell you about this movie
I just saw Love Me Tender for the first time this month. I have been doing a lot of studying about Elvis and wanted to see him in some of his movies. This was Elvis's first movie, and I found it okay, seeing as how I do not care for western-type movies. This is the only Elvis movie where we will see Elvis married, and where we see him die. I think he did a good job for the first time ever acting and never having any acting training. His part was pretty much believable, except I think they could have shown him acting more like a married man ( showing affection more to his wife, etc.) The song Love Me Tender fit fine in the movie, the others were okay too, but Elvis' moving and shaking, while tame, did not seem to fit the period of the film. But that's all right, this is an ELVIS picture after all!! They had to please the fans. I think Elvis was a bit too angry at his wife Cathy in the end, yelling at her and shaking her rather roughly, when I think, if you are married, you would be able to communicate in a more peaceable and loving way about a problem. But Hollywood likes dramatics over reality most of the time. I don't have much to say about the movie, just that it was good to watch since it was Elvis' first, and Elvis is young and beautiful and innocent here.Was this review helpful?

Love Me Tender, Love This Movie Tender
Elvis'first film is one of my favourites. Although he is not exactly the centre of attention for most of the movie, his performance is superb: natural and vital as Clint Reno, the youngest of four brothers. Clint remains at home while Vance, Brett, and Ray go to fight in the Confederate Army. The movie begins the day after the war ends. Vance's troupe doesn't know the war ended and carry out their orders to raid a Yankee train. After convincing themselves that the money is still rightly theirs, they split it up and head for home. Vance is the happiest to be getting home as he's been waiting four years to marry his beloved, beautiful Cathy. Naturally Vance is crushed to find that Cathy, thinking Vance dead, had married Clint. He tries to hide his feelings, but he can't keep living in such a heartbroken state. So, being the honourable man he is, he decides to get out from under the same roof as Cathy and head out to California. Unfortunately, his departure is cut off when several Yankees turn up and arrest the three Reno brothers involved in the train raid. The events that follow result in Clint's demise in his Cathy's arms, whispering, ''Everything's gonna be all right.'' This movie is so sweet and Elvis looks wonderful every moment, particularly in his Sunday go-to-meetin' suit. :) It's full of charm. Black and white. A perfect movie. A perfect antidote for a viewing of trash like ''Clambake'' (which was the first Elvis movie I saw and I hated it.... ) Go ahead. Get this movie and love it sweet.Was this review helpful?
