8 of the kings movies in this complete box set....only £16.98
Roustabout (Dir. John Rich, 1964): The year was 1964. The miniskirt is in. If you can't Watusi, you can't dance. Cassius Clay (soon to be Muhammad Ali) claims the heavyweight crown. And Elvis is a karate-chopping biker who's hired as a carnival Roustabout. At first he just provides the muscle and a diversion for the beautiful carny girls. Then he picks up a guitar and gets the midway rockin'. Looks like this talented tough guy may be what the good-hearted owner (Barbara Stanwyck) needs to save her travelling show from bankruptcy.
G.I. Blues (Dir. Norman Taurog, 1960): The year was 1960. A payola scandal shocks the music world. Movie fans are introduced to glorious Smell-O-Vision. The 50-star flag is adopted. And in G.I. Blues, Elvis adopts an on-screen persona he knows well in real life - a singin' G.I. in West Germany. Eager to open a stateside nightclub after his hitch in khakis, he takes part in a wager to raise the dough he needs. The bet: he can melt the heart of a willowy dancer (Juliet Prowse). But all bets may be off when real love intervenes...
Blue Hawaii (Dir. Norman Taurog, 1961): The year was 1961. Fallout shelters dot surburban backyards. Ken joins Barbie. Roger Maris slugs 61 home runs. And Elvis Presley is in paradise, playing an ex-G.I. who comes home to Blue Hawaii.
His mother (Angela Lansbury) expects him to climb the corporate ladder. But Elvis would rather wear an aloha shirt than a white collar, so he goes to work as a tour guide. Lucky Elvis: his first customers are a carfull of cuties. Elvis, lovely scenery, lovelier girls and rock-a-hula songs - now that's paradise!
Girls Girls Girls (Dir. Norman Taurog, 1962): Ross Carpenter, a fishing guide/sailor who loves his life out on the sea finds out his boss is retiring to Arizona and has to find a way to buy the Westwind, a boat that he and his father built.
King Creole (Dir. Michael Curtiz, 1958): The year was 1958. Everybody's dating at the drive-in. America launches its first satellite. The novel 'Lolita' stirs up controversy. And Elvis Presley gives Bourbon Street a new beat in King Creole.
He plays a troubled youth whose singing sets the French Quarter rockin'. With a sweet girl to love him and nightclubbers cheering, it looks like Elvis will shake off his past and head for the top. But will a mobster (Walter Matthau) and his man-trap moll (Carolyn Jones) snare him in a life of crime?
Paradise Hawaiian Style (Dir. Michael D. Moore, 1966): Rick Richards is a helicopter pilot who wants to set up a charter flying service in Hawaii - along the way he makes a whole lotta friends.
Easy Come, Easy Go (Dir. John Rich, 1967): Navy diver Ted Jackson (Presley), with the help of the skipper's daughter, hunts for sunken treasure...
Fun In Acapulco (Dir. Richard Thorpe, 1963): Mike works on a boat in Acapulco: when the bratty daughter of the boat owner gets him fired, Mike must find new work and becomes embroiled in a love triangle with two women and a champion Mexican diver!
