2011 Great 66 Points

What a treat this 45 minute documentary is, full of home movies featuring Elvis during the summer when he went from regional star to superstar. It captures the King of Rock & Roll as both the first rockstar and the perfect rockstar. Not yet jaded or degraded, this is the Elvis who soon became more myth than reality.

Elvis: Summer of `56 could have been titled Elvis & June since it’s largely based on the recollections and family movies of June Juanico, the girl he loved at the time. They spent the summer together in Biloxi, including deep sea fishing trips captured on film by her s…

1961 OK 66 Points
_100

Elvis returns to Hawaii from the Army and proceeds to shake things up with a bunch of girls, his flustered parents and the local tourism industry. Notwithstanding the King’s undying charisma, Blue Hawaii is a disappointing lark, especially since it contains no great songs and lacks a great female lead.

Perhaps most notably, Elvis invents the sales incentive trip at movie’s end, declaring to his pineapple mogul father than he’s going into business for himself. Selling what? Sales incentive trips to stateside companies. Given how such trips have become big business in the ensuing dec…
