Viva Las Ve­gas

TV Times - - Thursday -

film / 2.55pm / BBC2

re­garded as elvis Pres­ley’s best movie of the 1960s, this frothy mix of sun­shine, Ann-mar­gret, fast cars and, of course, crack­ing tunes proved a mas­sive hit in its day. The story, what lit­tle there is of it, sees Pres­ley play Lucky Jack­son, a rac­ing driver from the wrong side of the tracks who’s de­ter­mined to win the Las Ve­gas Grand Prix, but forced into be­com­ing a waiter to pay for his car’s blown en­gine. There he meets swim­ming in­struc­tor Ann-mar­gret and off they pop for some fun, ex­u­ber­ant dance routines. With songs like the ti­tle num­ber, Come On, Every­body and The Yel­low Rose of Texas, it’s hard not to get caught up in the fri­vol­ity, too.
