A Double Pleaser!

"Pop some corn and settle in to watch this Double Pleaser. The first movie,King Creole, (Blk/Wht), is just Elvis' fourth film. He plays a troubled teen who can't get along with his old man. He gets a job singing at a night club but the local mob boss,(played by Walter Matthau)
who owns the biggest club in the Big Easy, wants him for himself and always gets what he wants. Hot for Elvis is the Kingpins' own battered and lonely woman(Carolyn Jones) and naturally trouble ensues. Add some great dixeland rock and a pretty descent performance by Elvis and we've got us a fine pic. Hold on! Shows not over. Next, we have Elvis in G.I. Blues, his first film after a two year stint in the Army. He plays guess what?, a G.I. who sings and swoons a night club dancer (Juliet Prowse), a cold fish his army buddies bet big bucks Elvis can't warm over. Will he succeed in getting the girl? Humorous situations and misunderstandings come along with a subplot that will keep you in your seat but wishing you hadn't drank all that soda along with your big bowl of popcorn! This is a Double Pleasing Double Feature well worth your hard earned money."
Thank You! Thank You Very Much!

"Great old films from The King's early career. A must-have for any Elvis enthusiast or just someone curious about Elvis' charisma and sense of humor."
