Kid Galahad is a real mixed bag, with some half-baked ideas and some unwanted detours.

So typical Elvis musical with so-so songs.

Audience Reviews for Kid Galahad


Formulaic and completely predictable. Would have been nice to see Elvis get a substantial role in a substantial film once in a while. What a waste.

Super Reviewer

As long as you realize that Elvis movies are just a vehicle to put his singing butt on TV, you can enjoy the movie no matter how corny the story is.

the original is far superior in all aspects but for an elvis movie this one isn't bad.
