6-Disc, 6-Film Set includes: Viva Las Vegas - Elvis Presley and vivacious Ann-Margaret sizzle in this dazzling funfest that's brimming with high-voltage musical numbers, roaring race cars and glittery Vegas action. Jailhouse Rock- In one of his best-loved films, Elvis Presley, stars as a small-time convict who uses his time in prison to practice music, then goes on to become a big-time performer. Co-stars Judy Tyler and Dean Jones. Spinout- Elvis Presley is at the wheel and headed for a romantic Spinout. Shelley Fabares (his co-star in Girl Happy) plays the love struck rich girl who always gets what she wants. Deborah Walley is the rock drummer eager for a love duet. Diane McBain is the bestselling author researching "The Perfect American Male" and who knows she's found him. Elvis sings Never Say Yes, Adam and Evil, All That I Am, the title number and the emphatic Stop, Look, Listen. Take Spinout out for a spin. Speedway - For the first time since he and Ann-Margaret proclaimed Viva Las Vegas, Presley pairs with a high-octane singing, dancing leading lady. The supersonic song list include Let Yourself Go, Your Time Hasn't Come Yet, Baby and Your Groovy Self. Have a groovy time! It Happened at The World's Fair - Fun, music and Elvis all happen in this romp boasting one of the best backdrops of any Elvis Presley movie: the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, with its showpiece Space Needle, monorail and more. Harum Scarum- Go East, Young Man,? sings show-biz star and martial arts wiz Johnny Tyronne. To hear is to obey. A clandestine group called the Assassins kidnaps Johnny and whisks him to a remote Arabian realm isolated from the world for 2,000 years. The kidnappers want Johnny to use his fighting finesse to kill a desert king. Johnny a hitman? No, he's a hit, man, a top singer of songs like Kismet, Harem Holiday and nine more, all part of the jammin', swashbucklin' fun of Harum Scarum.

Review :

Two indisputable Elvis classics bolster this six-pack of Kingly films, with special emphasis on Elvis as race-car driver (three pictures feature this fave filmic occupation). Everybody loves Jailhouse Rock, the third movie in the Presley filmography. It's a kicky tale about a jailbird who learns to be a rock & roll singer in prison (a plot not at all crazy by later Elvis standards). The film catches Elvis in the freshness of being the New Thing, and his rave-up to the title tune is an exultant announcement that rock and roll just bashed down the front door of popular culture.

It Happened at the World's Fair jumps ahead five years, the Elvis formula set. Location shooting at the futuristic Seattle World's Fair of 1962 lends a quirky backdrop, and check out the young Kurt Russell (future inhabitor of the Elvis persona) kicking the King in the shins. Viva Las Vegas is the other consensus classic: EP plays a race-car driver waiting tables in Sin City, sparking big time with Ann-Margret. The two stars generate some heat, and the theme song has inspired many a road trip. No such trip will be inspired by Harum Scarum, a mad comedy set in the Middle East. Elvis is kidnapped while touring, and a lame spoof of Rudolph Valentino movies ensues.

It's back to the race track for the remaining pair. Spinout places the King in the direct path of three marriage-minded women, but he prefers his car and his guitar. Dumb plot, but the songs at least are agreeably rocking. Speedway has a slimmed-down Elvis and a groovy nightclub hangout, plus the ineffable Nancy Sinatra--there's some terrific kitsch value in this one. --Robert Horton
