In G.I. Blues, his first movie after his return from real-life military service, Elvis Presley put his soldiering experiece to good use as Tulsa McCauley, a GI who forms a combo with two dogface pals (Robert Ivers and James Douglas) and performs at a large Army show in West Germany.
Juliet Prowse plays Lili, an icy cabaret dancer with whom Elvis is to spend the night if his buddies are going to win a $300 wager, the seed money necessary for them to start a club when they get back to the States. In the process of winning the bet (accomplished guilelessly), Elvis falls in love with Lili, and G.I. BLUES makes its way to a happy ending.
