Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Elvis's outfits are impressive in 1967's Clambake, especially a groovy, belted sport coat and a cream-colored suit covered with cowhide-style stitching. The costumes are more creative than the soundtrack, which is heavy with the mindlessness of late-period Elvis movies. As he sings "Confidence" (an obvious rip-off of the Oscar-winning "High Hopes"), you can almost see Elvis batting out "Just shoot me" in Morse code with his eyelids. The only decent tune has the star crooning a nice, lonesome version of the standard "You Don't Know Me." This one's set in Florida, but with none of the scenic fun of his Hawaii pictures. He plays a rich oilman's son pretending to be a water-skiing instructor, with Shelley Fabares (a three-time Presley costar) as the girl. The camp highlight is an ensemble number with go-go girls helping Elvis fix a speedboat, which is just about as far from Sun Studios as you can get. --Robert Horton

Product Description

Elvis Presley sizzles as a lovelorn million-heir in this riveting and romantic rock 'n' roll romp. Vying for the attentions of the lovely Shelley Fabares ("Coach"), Elvis finds himself caught up in arivalry with playboy Bill Bixby ("The Incredible Hulk") "against a tuneful background of comedy, romance and speedboat racing" (Film Daily)! Clambake is "pleasing escape entertainment" (Boxoffice) and the wildest party to hit the beach since they invented the beach ball! It's a hip version of The Prince and the Pauper as Elvis relinquishes his oil-baron father's fortune and trades identities with a penniless water ski instructor (Will Hutchins) to learn about life from the bottom up. Suddenly short on money but long on determination, he repairs a radicallydesigned powerboat in order to win the regatta and the affection of a girl who's determined to marry rich!

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality source and/or transfer to DVD March 19, 2002
Format:DVD
Clambake starring Elvis Presley,Shelley Fabares,Will Hutchins,Bill Bixby,Gary Merrill,and James Gregory was an entertaining film with a very good cast.It's a take-off on the "Prince and the Pauper" story of a rich man that swaps identity with a poor man and wants to see if he can be a success without the family wealth.Too bad the quality of the print used in making this DVD was poor.The sharpness is disappointing, the color is weak, and there are numerous artifacts seen such as scratches and streaks.Also,the soundtrack is mediocre at best,even though a true HiFi/stereo soundtrack was originally recorded by Elvis for this release.There is no excuse for this hatchet-job,and I recommend you avoid purchasing this title until a respectable effort is made to produce a high-quality copy of this film.If you are a die-hard Elvis fan you'll probably buy it for your library,but the studio did justice to no one with the release of this DVD.Shame on the greedy leeches!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Elvis Movie of All July 16, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I have seen every one of Elvis's movies over and over again. This is my very favorite one. Even people I know who don't care for his movies liked this one. Elvis plays a rich guy who changes places with a poor guy. He wants to get a girl who likes him for himself and not for his money. The songs in this movie are his best. Bill Bixby plays the guy you love to hate. Everyone does a great job making this a really fun movie. If you are ever going to buy any of Elvis's movies, this is the one to buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars A VHS tape could offer more than this DVD November 27, 2001
By Elvisy
Format:DVD
When you're buying a DVD for a film you already have on tape, it is with the expectation of getting something better in terms of sound or picture quality.
Such is unfortunately not the case with this one. The film is the average low-budget Presley vehicule of the 60's, and the DVD transfer is not even up to that standard.

4.0 out of 5 stars CHARISMATIC March 8, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
ITS STRANGE THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE LEAST APPRECIATED ELVIS MOVIES BUT YET APPEARS TO BE ONE OF HIS BETTER MOVIES.THE BASIC PLOT OF THE MOVIE HAS ELVIS STARRING AS A RICH MANS SON TRYING TO GET PEOPLE TO APPRECIATE HIM AND NOT HIS MONEY.HE GOES ON TO TRADE IDENTITIES WITH A WATER SKI INSTRUCTOR HOPING TO BE TREATED AS A INDIVIDUAL AND NOT A MILLIONAIRES SON. ELVIS PLAYS ONE OF HIS BEST ROLES AS HE APPEARS TO BE LAID BACK .AS USUAL ELVIS CHARM AND CHARISMA MAKES THE MOVIE GREAT, I WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMED THIS VIDEO .ITS A TYPE OF MOVIE YOU CAN NEVER GET SICK OF .THIS MOVIE IS GREAT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis is back in the Sun Shine State in Clambake. March 11, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This was the 3rd and final film that Elvis Presley stared with Shelley Fabares. Remember in the first two films, Elvis had a combo and sang at clubs. But this time he is on his own.
Scott Heyward (Elvis Presley) is a millionaire's son. But he doesn't need $$$$ like his old man.
In the Sunshine State, he trades places with Ton Wilson (Will Hutchins, Spinout). Tom is going to be a ski teacher for a hotel. Elvis's first student is Dianne Carter (Shelly Fabares).
There is aslo a playboy boatracer named James Jamison (the late Bill Bixby) down there too. Scott's father (James Gregory) owns Heywood Oil. Scott aslo meets a boat co owner named Sam Burton (Gary Merrill).
There is a big boat race coming up. And Scott, Tom & Sam used a boat 50-50.
If you know someboy that either likes boats or an Elvis Presley fan, here is a film they may like.

It you want a top review of "Clambake", then read the four and five star comments. If you are down on Elvis to begin with, you'll want the one and two star reviews. Let's face it, Elvis was one of the greatest talents in the 20th century. Had the Colonel not controlled him, he would have made the films he wanted, and in fact, he was a top choice for several top pictures. Be that as it may, his singing, from rock 'n roll to gospel, is beyond compare. There are better Elvis films than "Clambake" but, I am personally prejudiced and you may want to read no further unless you like Hollywood stories.

One of the dancers in this film, who sparkles in her few scenes, is Angelique Pettyjohn (Gloria). A Las Vegas native and showgirl, she was best known for the "classic Star Trek" episode, "Gamesters of Triskelion". She had the female lead as the beautiful and sensitive Shahna. (Mispelled on some DVD labels as Shanna.) Her role made her a most popular guest at conventions, which is how we met her.

My wife and I ran media conventions for thirty years and she was our most popular early guest. We had her as a guest twice, and she stayed over both times to help raise money for scholarships and to visit classrooms. In my wife's kindergarten class she did face painting since it was close to Halloween. Much safer for small kids out at night than masks. She also visited my high school classes and conducted drama workshops.

In one class she particularly talked about "Clambake". Elvis was very down to Earth and just what every fan believes or wants to believe. One time he came over to her and a couple other dancers and asked if they minded if he tried out a new song. Naturally they were thrilled and he serenaded them. Afterward he asked their opinions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swinging at a Clambake! November 12, 2002
By Josh P.
Format:VHS Tape
"Clambake" was a film that Elvis had total disinterest in doing. Actually, this film is fun to watch and every Elvis fan should take the time to watch it. Probably the only reason was that the ever-lasting chain of musical comedies was getting tiresome and old. Bill Bixby is Elvis' rival. Elvis delivers him with a sucker punch and Bixby is out cold. Elvis is an unhappy-with-money millionaire's son who switches places with Will Hutchins, a poor water-skiing instructor. Elvis takes interest in third-time Elvis costar Shelley Fabares. If you want to see a zany Elvis picture, this is the one.

Remastered Clambake & Follow That Dream?
This might be to late but yes the quality is bad and there are no plans to remaster them because I bought the 75th birthday box thinking they would be remastered but it was the same disc as the DVD released yeard ago even the same disc art.
