Girls, Girls, Girls DVD - The year was 1962. Teens twisted at the Peppermint Lounge. John Glenn orbits Earth. Wilt Chamberlain scores 100 points in a single game. And Elvis digs the possibilities of Girls! Girls! Girls! This time he's a charter-boat skipper who helps tourists land the big ones. Of course, plenty of beautiful girls (including Stella Stevens) want to land Elvis. But there's something Elvis likes almost as much as romance - a boat! He yearns for a sleek sailboat with a $10,000 price tag. Let's see, that makes him about $9,999 short!
Girls! Girls! Girls! is one of the stronger Elvis travelogues, benefiting from being filmed before the slide in production values in Elvis films became apparent. A simple plot bolstered with 14 aurally satisfying musical numbers. In any case the plot is secondary to the location (Hawaii) and its beautiful scenery. Elvis is a poor charter boat pilot by day and at night supplements his income as a night club singer.
But will he realize his dream of owning the 'Westwind', and who will he choose as his long term partner? Laurel Goodwin doesn't work for me as a love interest for Elvis, while the smoldering sexuality of Stella Stevens could have been used to better effect. Jeremy Slate is effective as Elvis’ irritating nemesis and why they didn’t give effective character actor, Robert Strauss (Sam), more screen time is beyond me! As in a number of his 1960s films, Elvis's physical movements are very contrived, and seem somewhat unnatural during the 'staged' musical numbers.
