I grew up watching G.I. Blues and Elvis was my favorite as a teenager. I wanted to watch this movie again. Now I can watch it again and again! It is still as good as it was when I was a teenager.

A very entertaining, feel good comedy/musical starring Elvis
Stephen Verhaeren | 09/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of Elvis's earlier films and it was filmed just right after his honorable discharge from the Army and believe's one of his best work in Hollywood! The soundtrack is equally special as Elvis and the rest of the cast deliver excellent performances. Sure it's another love story of how Elvis's character falls for Juliet Prowse's character but having the story involve the U.S.Army and Germany as the backdrops add a special touch to this "Elvis Flick". It's a great ensemble cast as other characters are well written in the plot. The music is of Elvis at his best in Hollywood and the songs flow perfectly with the story (not cheesy or korny as in many musicals!). Note a special moment in the movie is when Elvis sings "Wooden Heart" to a puppet at a puppet show. Anyways, I've watched G.I.Blues many many times and it definately is an entertaining movie for the whole family. I'm in the military and this is a top 10 favorite movie of all time in my list!!!"
First post-Army film was a box-office smash!

""G.I. Blues" was #2 on the top grossing films at the box office when it was released. The storyline is Elvis plays Tulsa MacLean. Him and his Army buddies are about to get out of the army and look forward to opening up their own nightclub back in Oklahoma. Along the way, Tulsa is caught up in a bet that sees if he can date the enticing and cold-as-ice Cafe Europa dancer Lili (Juliet Prowse). Tulsa and Lili go further than that: they take a modest cruise to across the river to a puppet show where Tulsa sings "Wooden Heart". They both ride above a vineyard in a cablecar where again he breaks into "Pocketful of Rainbows." Then Tulsa is asked to baby-sit for a buddy who ran away to get married, and he's caught in a tight situation. Him and Lili reunite and spend the night with each other baby-sitting "Tiger". The bet is easily won. When Lili finds out, she's steamed! Little does she know that Tulsa really was Marla and Rick's baby-sitter. Tulsa and Lili come back together after an unexpected proposal, and following is an all-American Armed Forces Show finale where Tulsa and the rest of the memebers of the armed forces sing "Did'ja Ever?"."
Just plain fun.

"This is my second favorite Elvis movie. He looks, acts and sings alot of popular songs. Juliet Prowse is a stunning beauty and i think she should have been a Radio City Rockette. Her legs go on for days.This is a light hearted, romantic and musical comedy. It's fun from beginning to end with some really great show-stopper production numbers. Elvis fans will not be disappointed in this and the 5.1 stereo sound is not a bad remaster. It really does sound pretty great.In case you are curious, "Blue Hawaii" is my favorite Elvis movie and why not buy them both and run yourself a double feature."
