The King rules in this breezy mu­si­cal

Elvis breaks hearts and burns rub­ber as race ace Lucky Jack­son in this light­weight but colour­ful mo­tor rac­ing movie. But lucky he isn’t. He’s in Las Ve­gas for a big race when his car en­gine blows up. Ar­guably The King’s best Six­ties movie, with a crop of good songs (Viva Las Ve­gas and Come On,

Every­body) and the gor­geous Ann-mar­gret as the girl he falls for. Elvis’s most suc­cess­ful cin­ema re­lease, earn­ing more than $5mil­lion and cost­ing less than

$1mil­lion. Dir: George Sid­ney 1964, U, 80min sex lan­guage
