Overview

Elvis Presley stars as Mike Windgren, a former trapeze artist who's suffered from vertigo ever since accidentally dropping his partner during a performance. Working as a lifeguard/entertainer at an Acapulco resort, Mike falls in love with social director Margarita Dauphine (Ursula Andress). With her help, he overcomes his fear of heights in a spectacular high-dive finale. The plot, as usual, exists only to provide Presley with a novel backdrop for his songs, which in this case include "Vino, Dinero y Amor," "Marguerita," "Bossa Nova Baby" and the title tune. Fun in Acapulco shows signs of a good formula wearing thin; still, an Elvis picture was surefire money in the bank back in 1963.
