HARUM SCARUM introduces one of the stranger plots for an Elvis flick. The King plays a matinee idol on a visit to the desert kingdoms of the Middle East. His uneventful goodwill tour takes a turn for the weird when a team of assassins try to force him to exterminate their king. But Elvis has already captured the heart of the king's daughter (Mary Ann Mobley). Songs, include "My Desert Serenade," "Shake That Tambourine," and "So Close Yet So Far (From Paradise)."
