Curtiz's intelligent, austere, film noir-ish direction provides the perfect antidote to the occasional excesses of a script based on a Harold Robbins novel, and an ideal complement to Presley's performance.

This is arguably Elvis Presley's best film, and certainly his best acting performance.

Presley shows himself to be a surprisingly sympathetic and believable actor on occasion. He also does some very pleasant, soft and melodious, singing.
February 22, 2004
Presley oferece uma atuação convincente, Matthau está ótimo como vilão e o filme consegue inserir os números musicais sem interromper a narrativa.
| Original Score: 3/5

Elvis rises to the occasion of his fourth feature. He's a natural, more attitude and impulse than complexity and nuance, as he burns through the role...

It does demand to be taken seriously.

'This one won't force out the hankies to dry up the tears because laughter is a more appropriate response to the clichéd script'

It's Presley's Danny Fisher in King Creole who is a full-fledged, contradictory human being.

The film does an amazingly good job of doing of leading many to believe that Presley could have been an inspired actor had he not been steered down the river by Hal Wallis and Colonel Tom Parker.

As directed by the versatile Michael Curtiz,this is one of the better Elvis musicals in the early phase of his screen career.

Elvis, young and relatively untamed, in a superior star vehicle from 1958.
May 24, 2003
Familiar stuff, but direction from Casablanca's Curtiz makes it a cut above the rest dramatically, with a storyline more convincing than in a lot of rock 'n' roll films.
March 9, 2015
This is the jewel in the King's crown.

King Creole features Elvis Presley's best film performance, a result perhaps of the helming of Michael Curtiz.
