Harum Scarum

( 2 )

Overview

Director Gene Nelson may not have been able to do too much more with Harum Scarum than get it into the can on time and on budget, but the producers of this DVD have put a lot of effort into its production -- at least, it looks sensational in its letterboxed non-anamorphic widescreen (1.85-to-1) aspect ratio. It doesn't quite match the image found in some of Elvis's Panavision movies of the same period -- there was a good reason for shooting in the latter process, but this was a Sam Katzman production, which ...

Overview

Director Gene Nelson may not have been able to do too much more with Harum Scarum than get it into the can on time and on budget, but the producers of this DVD have put a lot of effort into its production -- at least, it looks sensational in its letterboxed non-anamorphic widescreen (1.85-to-1) aspect ratio. It doesn't quite match the image found in some of Elvis's Panavision movies of the same period -- there was a good reason for shooting in the latter process, but this was a Sam Katzman production, which limited both its budget and the degree to which anything seen on screen would look terribly good. But the reused classic movie sets are fun to look at, and this distinctly light Elvis incarnation -- which helped to inspire Jim Abrahams' Top Secret! -- has at least been given its best incarnation ever for home viewing. This also includes an absurdly generous chapter array, and a somewhat anemic trailer gallery, which may still prove fun for fans of the singer's movies.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Very dedicated fans of Elvis Presley and devotees of camp filmmaking may enjoy Harum Scarum, but most viewers will find it hard to make it to the end of this mess of a movie. Gerald Drayson Adams' screenplay has been hobbled together from many different sources with what seems to be little regard for coherence or logic, let alone wit, spontaneity, or entertainment. Gene Nelson directs with a distinct lack of flair (and probably with a total lack of interest); at times, one gets the impression that it was all he could do to tell the cameraman in which direction to point the camera. Presley, who usually got through his pictures on innate charm and instinct, is clearly bored and turns in a half-hearted performance. He's better in the musical portions, of course, but only "So Close, Yet So Far" seems to be coming from someplace remotely personal. Still, there are plenty of pretty girls (an important factor in this genre), some colorful costumes, and a number of moments (most notably the "Shake That Tambourine" number) that are campily diverting. And Presley looks surprisingly good in a turban. A big hit in its day, Harum Scarum is fun to laugh at, but the joke wears out rather quickly.
