Considered by many to be the best Elvis movie, KING CREOLE stars the young Mr. Presley as Danny Fisher, a singer with a knack for getting into trouble. After the cops nab him for stealing, Danny vows never to violate the law again. He manages to land a gig singing at a hip nightclub in the French Quarter of New Orleans. However, mobster Maxie Fields (Walter Matthau) soon demands that Danny perform exclusively for him. And to make matters worse, Danny gets involved with Maxie's squeeze (Carolyn Jones) and risks losing his true love, Nellie (Dolores Hart), as well as his own neck.
G.I. BLUES , the first film Elvis made after his stint in the army, tells the musical tale of Tulsa (Presley), a singing G.I stationed in West Germany who dreams of opening his own club when he gets out of the service. He has very little money, though, so he makes a large bet with fellow serviceman Dynamite--Tulsa must spend the night with beautiful and hard-to-get dancer, Lili (Juliet Prowse). Songs include, "Blue Suede Shoes," Shopping Around," and "Pocketful of Rainbows."
