Overview

Singing stars from two very different generations appear in Live A Little, Love A Little. Elvis Presley plays Greg, a photographer who divides his time working for a skin magazine and a conservative newspaper. Rudy Valle plays Penlow, the veteran newspaper publisher. Lansdown Don Porter is the publisher of a girly magazine as Greg tries to work for both without the other finding out. Greg falls in love with a fashion model Michele Carey in this situation comedy that even die-hard Elvis fans have a hard time swallowing. By this time, Elvis planned to fulfil his remaining movie obligations and return to the stage, as his 1960s film career had failed to take on the dramatic seriousness he desperately sought.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Live a Little, Love a Little is a strange little entry in the Elvis Presley canon. It's a bad movie from start to finish, but it has a certain interest as an attempt to remake the "wholesome" Elvis of the films into a more contemporary (for 1968) character. The attempt doesn't work, as it takes more than a "damn" or two and a job as a "Playboy"-type photographer to do the job; even the sequence of Elvis actually in bed with a woman gets the guts cut out of it by the barrier placed between them. The screenplay is just plain bad, even for an Elvis film of the period, but it does have some weird moments, such as a dream sequence complete with talking dog, and a little bit of psychedelia, that are fun. There's not much that the cast can do with this script, and even those who try pretty hard don't get very far. The best thing about Live/Love, as in many other of the King's pictures, is the music. Elvis only sings 4 songs, but those - "Edge of Reality," "A Little Less Conversation," " Wonderful World" and " Almost in Love" are all keepers. They can't make Live/Love good -- not by a long shot -- but they provide some sorely needed high spots.

    Elvis' most philosophical movie

    This movie is a conceptual masterpiece amongst the Elvis movies. It is a meditation upon naming & namelessness, the power of orgasm & the failure of logos, and the limit between man and animal. The dream sequence alone, around one of Elvis' best movie songs ('Edge of Reality,' one of only four songs in the movie), is worth the price of the video. The problem, where's the DVD? This movie demands a widescreen viewing.

    Elvis Presley tries to work two jobs agan, and gets hired from 2 bosses.

    Elvis Presley is up to it again, this time trying to hold on to two jobs but not let both bosses know he works for 2 different bosses. Both jobs are in the same building. He manages to work on his coffee breaks and schedules. After first he stays with Bernice (Michele Carey) who has diffrents names for the mood she is in. But soon she moves him into his own house. So he'll take some pictures for one boss, then he'll run up or down the stairs getting to the other.
