Movie Info

Ross Carpenter (Elvis Presley) is a poor fisherman trying to save enough money to buy back a boat built by his father. He falls for pretty nightclub singer Robin (Stella Stevens), a poor little rich girl who hides her affluent family ties. Ross has a rival for Robins affections in Jeremy Slate (Wesley Johnson), a wealthy weasel with a lecherous leer and the amorous arms of an octopus. Another frenzied female after Ross is Laurel (Laurel Dodge), who Ross saves from the amphibious tentacles of Jeremy before she falls in love with Ross. A dozen songs are features in this Hawaiian setting, the most notable being the Otis Blackwell and Winfield Scott classic "Return To Sender." This was the fourth film for the pill popping Presley in 1962, who would keep up this furious pace of largely forgettable films until returning to the live performances that launched him to super stardom. Background vocals are provided by The Jordanaires.

Those who remember Elvis as the King will shake their heads at this cheap production.

Audience Reviews for Girls! Girls! Girls!

½

Cheesy but doesn't try too hard so ends up just plain ol' enjoyable- casual racism aside (not mean hearted at least, though definitely questionable). Too bad they didn't make use of the great 60s-tastic title, should a been more of a Casanova storyline.

Elvis's energy is great and the soundtrack is surprisingly solid. Too bad the script is so weak. Missed opportunity with great songs and Elvis looking like the perfect mix of what he could have been: a true Hollywood leading man who can sing and dance like no other.

Silly plot, a lot of music including Return to Sender and colorful locations add up to a standard Elvis flick. Far from his worst but an equal distance from his best. Stella Stevens is wasted in the second female lead, anytime she shows up she elevates the movie to another level unfortunately that isn't nearly enough.
