Overview

Steve Grayson Elvis Presley is a swinging racecar driver whose manager Kenny Bill Bixby has bet his money on the horses. Most of the horses didn't win, causing Steve to be visited by IRS agent Susan Jacks Nancy Sinatra. Gale Gordon plays Hepworth, her stuffy supervisor, and William Shallert has the role of Abel Esterlake, former racecar driver who helps Steve on the track. Steve engages in the stock-car races at the Charlotte Speedway to get back the money to keep him and his manager out of jail. Presley delivers 11 songs, the most notable being "Let Yourself Go." Elvis by now was just playing out the innocuous string of movies that his musically insensitive, cigar-chomping manager Colonel Tom Parker had contracted for him. Soon Elvis would undertake the most successful live comeback by any performer in history and leave these trashy features behind.

    It's Elvis--good songs, cute story...

    but really, now we're getting into the cookie-cutter movies that he was contracted to do. I like this one, as Bill Bixby is a well-meaning troublemaker and Elvis is the hero at the end. And it's Elvis--what's not to love?
