It Happened At The World's Fair



What else can be said about the movie that is already desribed by the above text on the DVD cover? Elvis is in a good shape in this movie which was first to be seen in cinemas in 1963. Elvis is doing what he can do best: Singing songs while the plot is moving on.

It Happened At The World's Fair


Mike (Elvis Presley) and his friend Danny (Gary Lockwood) are cropduster pilots. Unfortunally Danny is a gambler and because of his gambling debts a local sheriff takes custody of the plane. The way out of the financial squeeze is to earn some money and this takes them to Seattle and the World's Fair.

While his friend Danny tries to earn money by poker games, Mike (Elvis) takes care of Sue-Lin, the little girl, whose father has disappeared. As a matter of course a love-affair with a young lady, the nurse Diane (played by Joan O'Brien), is included.
