Blue Hawaii (1961)

Notes: 2/1/11
Angela Lansbury in an Elvis movie?
Actor who plays patrolman is amateurly bad.
Story is dull, but the photography is lovely.
Elvis is good-looking for sure. His presence is one-of-a-kind.
Angela is sparkling.
'I Can't Help Falling in Love' – perhaps my favorite Elvis song?
'Rock-a-Hula' – Very memorable

Review: C+
Sunny Elvis film offers a dull story and some weak acting, but who cares? Elvis proves to be a one-of-a-kind entertainer singing the fun “Rock-a-Hula” and the unforgettable “Can't Help Falling in Love”. Another major highlight is the presence of Angela Lansbury as Elvis's mother. She is sparkling and provides the film with some genuine laughs and her unmistakable class.
