Editorial Reviews

The Mississippi River's never seen as many wild twists as in this spirited and extravagant riverboat ride, which stars the King of Rock'n'Roll Elvis Presley and the lovely Donna Douglas of "The Beverly Hillbillies!" Featuring hilarious support from Harry Morgan ("M.A.S.H.") and eleven original Presley tunes as well as his motion-picture dancing debut, Frankie and Johnny is a "sure-fire romppretty girls, a toe-tapping score and Elvis all the way" (Variety)! Presley is Johnny, a riverboat singer whose life, according to girlfriend and singing partner Frankie (Douglas),has become "one great big roulette wheel." And he's so obsessed with that wheel of misfortune that when a gypsy woman prescribes a redhead to be his good luck charm, Johnny sets out to find one. Trouble is, Frankie is most definitely a blonde...and a jealous blonde at that. When she sees Johnny with curvaceous carrot-top Nellie Bly (Nancy Kovack of The Silencers), Frankie decides that she'll break off her romance with Johnnyand end their big numberwith a bang!

Format: DVD
Elvis appeared in this lighthearted musical based on the folk song, "Frankie and Johnny". In the original song, the title characters are lovers whose romance goes awry when red-headed Nellie Bly steals Johnny away from Frankie. Frankie gets revenge by shooting Johnny dead. The movie lightens the tone of the tale by adding a few details and changing the downbeat ending. In the film, the song has been especially written for riverboat performers Frankie and Johnny, played by Donna Douglas (The Beverly Hillbillies) and Elvis Presley. Johnny is a gambler whose bad luck changes when dancer Nellie Bly, played by Nancy Kovak, joins the troupe aboard the riverboat. Each night, the three perform the number "Frankie and Johnny" onstage. As Johnny's interest in Nellie increases, so does Frankie's jealousy. One night, someone loads real bullets into Frankie's prop gun, and Johnny is shot during the performance. As luck would have it, Johnny is saved by a charm that he wears around his neck.
The film did benefit from the juicy secondary roles played by a seasoned cast of character actors which keep the film from being any less interesting. Harry Morgan, who later gained recognition on the TV series M*A*S*H played Cully the piano player. Robert Strauss, the burly villain in many crime dramas, played Blackie, the boss's stooge and Sue Ane Langdon portrayed Mitzi, the girl who is always edged out in the romance department.
Produced for United Artists by Edward Small. Released March 31, 1966. Color.

"Frankie and Johnny" is based on the old song about two lovers where Johnny is on a losing streak and decides he can change his luck with Nellie Bly. A jealous Frankie shoots her man because "he was doin' her wrong". This movie is sort of based on the song. Everything is true except the shooting part in the end, but it comes very close to actually happening. "Frankie and Johnny" is quite enjoyable no matter how "obscure" you people might find it. It's a real top-notch and every Elvis fan must see it. By the way, we need more reviews on Elvis' movies and music please.

Format: VHS Tape
Frankie and Johnny (1966) 88 Min.Rated: NR Color Starring:Elvis Presley,Donna Douglas,Harry Morgan, Sue Ann Langdon, Nancy Kovack, Audrey Christie, Robert Strauss, Anthony Eisley. Director: Frederick De Cordova. Elvis is a riverboat gambler and Donna Douglas (Elly Mae-Beverly Hillbillies)is his lady love. As the headlined act (Franky & Johnny) on the paddle-wheeled steamer they should be happy cruising the Mississippi but Lady Luck (gambling)keeps luring Johnny (Elvis) to the roulette tables where he loses all his money. A fortune teller tells him that a red-headed woman will change his luck and he meets a beautiful redhead and goes on a hot winning streak. But it's not as hot as Frankie's (Donna Douglas) rage when she hears he's been "doing her wrong." Lots of songs including the title and When The Saints Go Marching In. The period sets, costumes, and Harry Morgan's performances are great also!

Format: VHS Tape
FRANKIE AND JOHNNY is better than the previous two films (TICKLE ME and HARUM SCARUM), but that doesn't mean that it succeeds on all levels.
Elvis looks quite comfortable in the costumes he wears in this picture, but the lousy dialogue and dumb plotline are anything but brilliant.
The songs are okay, but nothing outstanding. Only "Please Don't Stop Loving Me" could succeed on it's own.
It's not as bad as some of the other Elvis pictures of the era, but it's not an essential addition to anyone's collection.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Roger Bagula on January 8, 2009
Format: DVD
This movie is kind of an Elvis version of Showboat which is a classical
musical.
The result of them making Elvis Presley in to a contract worker who
stars every year or so with a new different starlet was that he got really
pretty bored. It shows a lot in his performances here:
the zest is gone and what is left is just work in
front of a camera. He must of felt like a piece of meat
sold to the highest bidder.
This picture is about all that is wrong about the contract star system in Hollywood. Sure they get famous and rich, but the soul sold is forever gone.

A simple movie that can be enjoyed by all ages. (Which is rare today) The songs and great looks of Elvis make this one enjoyable.

Format: VHS Tape
A slapdash effort at recreating a folk legend, the story of Frankie and Johnny suffers in the heavy hands of the Presley machine. The only redeeming features are a couple of atmospheric numbers ("What Every Woman Lives For" and "Hard Luck"), and Harry Morgan's deft comedy timing. Even the old chestnuts "When the Saints.." and "Down by the Riverside" get a workout to try and fire up the action, with little success.

It is hard to review a film I haven't watched. It is a gift for an Elvis fan. He already has it on VHS and wants the DVD, so I guess that's saying something. The 3 stars I gave are actually rating the Elvis movies I have seen. Rad.
