This is A Film-Noirish like classic. Elvis is incredible and displays some serious acting chops in this movie. Originally screened for James Dean. Dark and Depraved. The soundtrack also feature some of Elvis's most raucous and raw tacks. Followed up with some of his most beautiful, stirring songs. Kid Creole is Unlike anything Elvis did before or would after. An Elvis movie that will get the best out of you emotionally. If you're under 40 and you want to know why this man was a legend, This is it.
A must see film. A mirror of the racial injustice that was so prevalent in the south during this time period. Juano Hernandez(Lucas) plays the elder statesman. Intelligent, Hard Working and of course framed. David Brian, (Most notably known for his stellar Film Noir work) is outstanding. The Film is dark and raw. An important film that educates as much as it entertains.
Themes of Sex, infidelity, and relationships holds up well after 60 yrs. Realistic romantic soap that has some fantastic performances. Most notably, Richard Egan.(Sandra's Father) is fantastic.Drags in certain spots. But, the performances compensate.
Sandra Dee is flat out adorable.
Troy Donahue is typically forgettable and does his best impersonation of a ken doll.
Enjoyed it a lot more than I expected.
Found this gem on YouTube movies.
The chemistry between Grant and Kerr is timeless.
Both spitting out one liners that are hilarious.
The plot is is a farce. But, definitely worth your time to see these 2.
