Movie Info

Elvis Presley plays rock singer and racecar driver Mike McCoy in the typical musical romp Spinout, directed by Norman Taurog. His band includes Curly Jack Mullaney, Larry Jimmy Hawkins and the female tomboy drummer Les Deborah Walley. Mike is coveted by a bevy of beauties that include the intellectual journalist Diana St. Clair Diane McBain, Susan Dodie Marshall and the spoiled rich girl Cynthia Foxhugh Shelley Fabares. Cynthia's millionaire father Howard Carl Betz wants Mike to race his newly built auto. All the girls want Mike, but he manages to marry them off to different paramours and in the end falls for his replacement drummer Susan. The 12-song album of the same title contained a musical curiosity, Bob Dylan's Tomorrow Is A Long Time. It was the only Dylan song ever recorded by Presley -- and the longest, at over five minutes in length.more

Audience Reviews for Spinout

Mod Elvis and the '60s ye-ye dancers! This one is super bizarre. It is glorious looking but, about as shallow as The Archies. Worth it for Elvis' sweet velvet three piece suits and silk ascots, but not enough cars for a movie called Spinout. They should have just gone full Speed Racer.

Great Elvis movie even though he always seems to play the same exact type of character... its a good one though.
