First film released after Elvis was discharged from his military duty.
Audience Reviews for G.I. Blues
Wow, John Lennon was right "Elvis died when he went into the Army." Elvis lost his swagger, his stage presence and his charm- GI Blues Elvis seems blue and subdued. Flimsy plot, bland music you barely notice, and really no stand out moments. There's simply no appeal, other than Elvis looking as fit as he probably ever will in his life.
Great soundtrack but given they had two years to put together an Elvis movie, they should have done much better than this. Mildly entertaining but really is only for Elvis fans.
Not as good as King Creole nor as flashy as Viva Las Vegas this still falls into the plus category as far as Elvis films go. He has a talented costar in Juliet Prowse and while the script is innocuous it certainly is far better than the slug he would be making just a few years later like Speedway and Harum Scarum. He looks very fetching in his uniform, the songs by and large are pretty good and there are attractive locations. A pleasant diversion.
