Overview

Elvis Presley hits the high seas in this musical comedy. Ted Jackson (Presley) is a former Navy frogman who divides his time between twin careers as a deep sea diver and nightclub singer. Ted discovers what he believes could be a fortune in Spanish gold aboard a sunken ship and sets out to rescue it with the help of go-go dancing yoga expert Jo Symington (Dodie Marshall). However, Gil Carey (Skip Ward) is also after the treasure and uses his girlfriend Dina Bishop (Pat Priest) to foil Ted's plans. Elvis sings six tunes in this picture, including the deathless "Yoga Is as Yoga Does" and "The Love Machine.""

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Easy Come, Easy Go, Elvis Presley's 24th film outing, is not the worst of the "King's" screen offerings, but it's far from his best. By 1967, Elvis films had devolved into silly, rather tired affairs, and this is certainly the case with Easy. Worse, most of these later films feature the star singing songs that owe more to Broadway and to Hollywood pop than to rock & roll, and this is the case with Easy. While there's only one song that is a true, out-and-out horror -- the unforgivable "Yoga Is as Yoga Does" - it's also true that the rest of the score is nothing more than pleasantly serviceable. Elvis sounds good singing them, and he's at his most charismatic and engaging during the musical numbers, but they don't compare to his best work. When he's not singing, Elvis relies on his charm and charisma rather than any real acting; he coasts through the movie on his personality, which is really all that the material deserves anyway. The screenplay is poor, the kind of thing written by old fogeys who think they're being "hip," even when they're dealing with a beatnik subculture that by 1967 was horrendously out of date. Dodie Marshall is attractive but doesn't register as a performer; much better is Pat Priest, looking great and playing the bad girl with zest. There's some fun to be had from the sets and the fashions, but Easy is not one for the ages.
