BLUE HAWAII: Elvis Presley stars in this vehicle tailored to his singing talents in a return to musical comedy after several turns in dramatic roles. Chad Gates returns home to Honolulu after a stint in the service. He shows little interest in working for his overbearing parents' pineapple plantation, much to their dismay. Instead, Chad finds a job as a tour guide and thereby gives himself a chance to dance with, and sing to, a variety of Hawaii's most beautiful women. Includes musical numbers such as "Blue Hawaii," "Rock-A-Hula Baby," "Hawaiian Wedding Song," and "Island of Love," as well as the immortal "Can't Help Falling in Love."
PARADISE, HAWAIIAN STYLE: Elvis stars as pilot Rick Richards, an ex-airline pilot who starts a helicopter charter service in Hawaii with his pal Danny Kohana (James Shigeta). Along the way, he finds time to mingle with the natives, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and romance Judy Hudson (Susanna Leigh). Includes such tunes as "A Dog's Life," "Sand Castles," "Bill Bailey, Won't You Please Come Home," "Stop Where You Are," "House of Sand," "Datin'," "Queenie Wahine's Papaya," and others.
