Paramount has a new box set out on Elvis and its called Lights! Camera! Elvis! Collection The movies you will receive is (Blue Hawaii/Easy Come, Easy Go/Fun in Acapulco/G.I. Blues/Girls! Girls! Girls!/King Creole/Roustabout/Paradise Hawaiian Style). There are 4 thin cases in the box with two DVD's of Elvis' movies. If you don't like the 2 movies in one case deal, then you can buy them individually. As a collector, I love to put my Elvis Movies in Chronological order. So this type of packaging kind of cramps my style. But at the same time this box set is a cool way to collect a good bit of Elvis movies at one time. The only thing that is negative I can say about this box set which has the same issues as the individual DVD's you can buy, is the Disc are the same artwork on the 2000 releases. The graphic and font on the disc don't match with the 2007 cases, but the cases are much better and it has a darker, colorful, and creative look to them. I would buy this Box set if they threw in a Bonus disc of cool documentaries or great movie performances. Another reason would be that I would love to have to this cool blue suede box set. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy my 2007 individual remastered Elvis movies from Paramount. The Artwork of Elvis is bigger and I can go back to putting them in Chronological order.

This is just a slimline repackage of movies already available by Paramount on DVD from the King , Elvis Presley. If you don't own them its a handy way to get them in one pop...but it could be a bit cheaper when you consider NON of these movies sells for more than $10 new in its own case etc...which Is why I am deducting a star. If you can pick it up at Costco for $44 its a much better deal. Nothing has been done to upgrade the quality of the movie presentations from previous editions.

fun / stupid movies with Elvis dancing and singing..and ONE GREAT MOVIE...perhaps his best..King Creole. Girls Girls Girls features the always worth watching Stella Stevens, and GI Blues has its moments. most of the rest are nice traveloges....from Mexico to Hawaii..

This is my second favorite Elvis movie. He looks, acts and sings alot of popular songs. Juliet Prowse is a stunning beauty and i think she should have been a Radio City Rockette. Her legs go on for days.This is a light hearted, romantic and musical comedy. It's fun from beginning to end with some really great show-stopper production numbers. Elvis fans will not be disappointed in this and the 5.1 stereo sound is not a bad remaster. It really does sound pretty great.In case you are curious, "Blue Hawaii" is my favorite Elvis movie and why not buy them both and run yourself a double feature.

G.I. Blues has to be the only Elvis Presley film that his name appears more than the opening and end credits (if there are any). And that happens when a man who during Elvis Presley's 2nd song in the movie decides to play an Elvis Presley song on the jukebox. Tulsa McCauley (Elvis Presley) dreams of opening his own nightclub in America with his two army buddies Cookey (Robert Ivers) and Rick (James Douglas). The songs that Elvis Presley sings include G.I. Blues, Tonight is So Right For Love, Wooden Heart, and Blue Suede Shoes. Even though, he got out of the army, a few months before filming this movie. And he had to get back into an army uniform. This was the first of 9 movies that Elvis was directed by

"G.I. Blues" was #2 on the top grossing films at the box office when it was released. The storyline is Elvis plays Tulsa MacLean. Him and his Army buddies are about to get out of the army and look forward to opening up their own nightclub back in Oklahoma. Along the way, Tulsa is caught up in a bet that sees if he can date the enticing and cold-as-ice Cafe Europa dancer Lili (Juliet Prowse). Tulsa and Lili go further than that: they take a modest cruise to across the river to a puppet show where Tulsa sings "Wooden Heart". They both ride above a vineyard in a cablecar where again he breaks into "Pocketful of Rainbows." Then Tulsa is asked to baby-sit for a buddy who ran away to get married, and he's caught in a tight situation. Him and Lili reunite and spend the night with each other baby-sitting "Tiger". The bet is easily won. When Lili finds out, she's steamed! Little does she know that Tulsa really was Marla and Rick's baby-sitter. Tulsa and Lili come back together after an unexpected proposal, and following is an all-American Armed Forces Show finale where Tulsa and the rest of the memebers of the armed forces sing "Did'ja Ever?".

If you are a true Elvis fan, you will love this collection of his movies. They are a lot of fun to watch and lifts your spirits! I watch them many times a week especially Blue Hawaii, G I Blues, and King Creole as these are my favorites. I have since started collecting his other movies.

This is one of Elvis's earlier films and it was filmed just right after his honorable discharge from the Army and believe me...it's one of his best work in Hollywood! The soundtrack is equally special as Elvis and the rest of the cast deliver excellent performances. Sure it's another love story of how Elvis's character falls for Juliet Prowse's character but having the story involve the U.S.Army and Germany as the backdrops add a special touch to this "Elvis Flick". It's a great ensemble cast as other characters are well written in the plot. The music is of Elvis at his best in Hollywood and the songs flow perfectly with the story (not cheesy or korny as in many musicals!). Note a special moment in the movie is when Elvis sings "Wooden Heart" to a puppet at a puppet show. Anyways, I've watched G.I.Blues many many times and it definately is an entertaining movie for the whole family. I'm in the military and this is a top 10 favorite movie of all time in my list!!!
