VIVA LAS VEGAS (1964) C widescreen 85m dir: George Sidney
w/Elvis Presley, Ann-Margret, Cesare Danova, William Demerest, Nicky Blair, Jack Carter, Robert B. Williams, Bob Nash, Roy Engel, Barnaby Hale
From The Movie Guide: "Presley's one really good musical, mainly because it features a female costar, Ann-Margret, who can match the coiffed one in the charisma stakes. Elvis plays Lucky Jackson, a race-car driver who comes to Las Vegas to compete in the upcoming Grand Prix against his arch-rival, Count Elmo Cancini (Cesare Danova). To earn money for a new engine, Presley takes a job as a waiter in a casino, romancing swimming teacher Rusty Martin (Ann-Margret) and singing songs in his spare time before the race. They include 'The Lady Loves Me' (Sid Tepper, Roy C. Bennett); 'Viva Las Vegas,' 'I Need Somebody to Lean On' (Doc Pomus); 'What'd I Say?' (Ray Charles); 'Come One, Everybody' (Stanley Chianese); 'Today, Tomorrow and Forever' (Bill Giant, Bernie Baum, Florence Kaye); 'If You Think I Don't Need You' (Bob 'Red' West); 'Appreciation,' 'My Rival' (Marvin More, Bernie Wayne); 'The Climb,' 'The Yellow Rose of Texas' (Don George); and 'The Eyes of Texas Are upon You.'"
