Movie Reviews

One of Elvis's Best!
Movie Nut | New York USA | 10/03/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was thrilled to see my favorite Elvis film coming out on DVD. This is truly one of the best of Elvis! Not only is the story great, but the songs are all terrific. Elvis shines in his portrayal of Walter Gulick, a now former soldier who becomes a boxer. The rest of the cast is also terrific, mainly Gig Young and a supporting role by Charles Bronson. Once again, Joan Blackman (from Blue Hawaii) plays Elvis's love interest- If you have only seen Elvis in some of the silly films from the 60's than you need to see Kid Galahad, you will see the true actor in Elvis...if only he had been given the chance to do more dramatic roles he might have been more appreciated for his acting and not just his singing."
An unfairly treated ELVIS " movie.

"from the very first time i saw this film, i've been convinced that Elvis can act as well as sing. Unfortunately, he was not given too many chances to do so. His performance is credible, noteworthy, and unforgettable. The up-state NEW YORK scenery is beautiful,the veteran actors also in the movie- GIG YOUNG, CHARLES BRONSON, ED ASNER, all give outstanding performances.
The songs may have been few, KING OF THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD, I GOT LUCKY, etc, but still Elvis at his best.This movie is my favorite Elvis flick hands down. PLEASE MGM produce this movie on DVD FULLSCREEN AND WIDESCREEN 5:1 DOLBY DIGITAL . DO IT SOON, FOR I WANT TO ADD IT TO MY COLLECTION. THANKS,oldugly1911"

"This is definately one of Elvis Presley very best movie. I love it. He is at his singing best, fighting best and acting best! This is Classic Elvis. I'm so happy that this gem of a movie is finally available on DVD."

""Kid Galahad" stars Elvis as an ex-G.I. who comes back to his hometown in upper state New York. Beautiful scenery, I might add. He wants to be an auto mechanic after returning from the Army, but instead he's reluctantly roped into being trained to be a boxer. Elvis has an anvil-fist and an iron jaw. Soon, he becomes boxing champ nicknamed "Kid Galahad". Joan Blackman returns and plays Elvis' love interest and the sister of the boxing camp owner Gig Young. Great picture formula, great songs and beautiful and breathtaking mountain scenery. Recommend this must-see to everyone."
