Three classic musicals starring Elvis Presley. In 'G.I. Blues' (1960), Elvis plays a guitar-picking gunner who accepts a bet that he can spend the night with a cabaret dancer, hoping to use the proceeds to open a nightclub. 'Tonight Is So Right for Love' and 'Blue Suede Shoes' are among the songs. In 'King Creole' (1958), Elvis stars as Danny Fisher, a juvenile delinquent who works his way up from bus boy to nightclub singer, only to fall in with a bunch of gangsters and criminals. Danny wants to do things the honest way, but mobster Maxie Fields (Walter Matthau) is determined to get the young fellow playing on his team. Musical numbers include 'King Creole', 'Hard-Headed Woman', 'Trouble' and 'Lover Doll'. Finally, in 'Blue Hawaii' (1961), Elvis plays Chad Gates, an ex-soldier who returns home to Hawaii with three things on his mind: fun, music and girls. Chad's mother, Sarah Lee (Angela Lansbury), wants him to embark on a career in big business, but Chad has other ideas and takes a job as a tour guide. Of course, family troubles aside, the King also finds time to set the palm trees swinging as he sings 'Rock a Hula Baby', 'Can't Help Falling in Love' and other classic hits.
