    Elvis Presley's seventh film was the first of his "Hawaii trilogy" (a group completed by Girls! Girls! Girls! and Paradise, Hawaiian Style). While its story is daft--the King has just been released from his army-posting in Italy and returned to the islands, where he's trying to avoid working in his father's fruit business--the music, including "Blue Hawaii," "Almost Always True" and the beautiful "Can't Help Falling in Love", is not. Angela Lansbury plays Elvis's mother, who can't seem to get through to him. The film is directed by Elvis's frequent collaborator, Norman Taurog. --Tom Keogh

    After Elvis Presley got out of the army in 1960, he was instantly ushered into G.I. Blues, a Paramount movie about an Oklahoma singer who (surprise) gets out of the army and wants to open a club. Making a potentially lucrative bet that he can seduce a cabaret singer (Juliet Prowse), Elvis instead falls in love. Leaving behind his rockabilly roots for a slicker image better suited to early 60s pop, the Elvis of this movie is the one who made almost 30 more just like it. The songs include "G.I. Blues", "It's Not Good Enough for You," "Tonight Is So Right for Love" and "Wooden Heart". It's directed by Norman Taurog, a studio veteran who made his first film in 1928 and worked many times with Presley. --Tom Keogh

    New man in Zuni Wells. Handsome. Knows horses. Looking for part-time work until rodeo season opens. But when the ranch job Lonnie Beale snaps up turns out to be a stint at a dude ranch/spa for actresses and models and when the fella playing Lonnie is Elvis Presley it's a cinch we're all in for full-time fun! This film frolic tickles with a saddlebag of nine tunes including I'm Yours and (Such An) Easy Question). There's considerable tickling of the funnybone since writers Elwood Ullman and Edward Bernds are veterans of the Three Stooges comedies. Elvis enjoys his share of the laughs as he meets girl (Jocelyn Lane) loses girl and gets girl back plus a fortune in lost gold. Tickle Me is good as gold in so many ways.

  • The Adventures of Tom SawyerThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer | DVD | (01/01/2008) from £8.08   |  Saving you £-2.09 (N/A%)   |  RRP £5.99

    The 1938 version of Adventures of Tom Sawyer appears to be producer David O. Selznick's dry run for Gone with the Wind what with its similarities in period costumes color scheme and production design (both films shared the services of the great Hollywood art director William Cameron Menzies). Selected from hundreds of applicants (a precursor to Selznick's upcoming search for Wind's Scarlet O'Hara) Tommy Kelly is visually perfect as Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer though his acting varies from scene to scene. Better cast is Jackie Moran as the laconic pipe-smoking Huck Finn (Moran would show up in Wind as Dr. Meade's son). Never forcing its pace the film manages to include most of Twain's classic sequences including the fence-whitewashing episode Tom's rescue of Becky Thatcher (Anne Gillis) from the wrath of their schoolmaster (Olin Howlin) Tom and Huck's death and resurrection after the boys briefly skipped town for an idyll on a remote island the murder trial of town drunk Muff Potter (Walter Brennan) and ultimately unmasking of the vicious Injun Joe (Victor Jory) as the real killer and of course the chilling climax in the cave wherein Tom protects Becky from the fugitive Injun Joe. Originally released at 93 minutes Adventures of Tom Sawyer was trimmed to 77 minutes for a 1959 reissue; it has since been restored to its full length on videotape. In 1960 Tom Sawyer was syndicated to television by Selznick with accompanying commentary by the film's now-grown-up Becky Thatcher Anne Gillis.
