Description by

The year is 1964. The miniskirt is in. If you can't Watusi, you can't dance. Cassius Clay (soon to be Muhammad Ali) claims the heavyweight crown. And Elvis is a karate-chopping biker who's hired as a carnival Roustabout. At first he just provides muscle and a diversion for the beautiful carny girls. Then he picks up a guitar and gets the midway rockin'. Looks like this talented tough guy may be what the good-hearted owner (Barbara Stanwyck) needs to save her traveling show from bankruptcy.

Product Description:

Elvis stars as tough-but-tender singer Charlie Rogers, a singer who believes he has finally found a steady job at Maggie Morgan's (Barbara Stanwyck) carnival. To Maggie, popular Charlie is a way out of her financial difficulties. Trouble brew, however, when Charlie begins a romance with Cathy Lean (Joan Freeman), and Cathy's carnival supervisor brother, Joe (Leif Erickson), disapproves. Charlie attempts to take his talent elsewhere, but his business with Joe and Cathy isn't finished yet... Raquel Welch makes her screen debut in a bit part as a college girl. Includes the songs "Hard Knocks," "One Track Heart," "It's a Wonderful World" and "Big Love Big Heartache."

Plot Synopsis:

Rough-but-tender Charlie Rogers hopes that, in Maggie Morgan's carnival, he has finally found a steady singing job. Maggie, in turn, sees in the sexy, popular Charlie a way out of her financial difficulties.
As Charlie begins to draw a host of listeners, he becomes attracted to Cathy Lean. Their mutual affection grows, but Cathy's brother, Joe, the curmudgeonly carnival supervisor, puts a stop to that.
After a fight with Joe and a disagreement with Cathy, Charlie splits this sideshow for another carnival. Meanwhile, a variety of intriguing events, including a misplaced wallet and relentless brunette, thrust Charlie back into conflict with Joe... and possibly back into the company of Cathy.
