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?
