5.0 out of 5 stars "This is the one movie that makes sense"...enjoy! June 3, 2005
Format:DVD
"King Creole" what more can be said that hasn't been said already. When this picture was first shown at the Vilma Theater on Belair Rd. in Baltimore City there wasn't an empty seat in the house(the line outside was almost as long as it was for "The Ten Commandments" that premired a short time after King Creole). To start off I'm not sure how many folks know it but this was Elvis's favorite movie that he made. "Crawfish,CCrrraaawwwfffiiissshhhh-gees I got'em",boy if that doesn't make you feel like you are right on the Gulf, sharing plates with Cajuns and of course Creoles! Everything about this movie is first class: the Stars-Presly, Jagger,Mathouw,Jones and of course Vic Marrow as always the perfect Punk.The music is about the best Elvis ever did. I have had the original LP for about 40 years now and still play it for my grandchildren. Dixieland Rock,Trouble, Crawfish, King Creole this is some really good stuff and the fact that this music is backed up by a live Brass Blues Band makes it somewhat "Outstanding" not to mention that the back up vocals are done by no other then Gordon Stoker and the Jordonaires as they are right on stage with the King himself. If you want to see some real Hollywood History with a top notch cast (keep in mind Dean Jagger did this movie a year before he stared in "White Christmas" with Bing,Danny,Rosemary and Vera Ellen)and a first class plot with some great action and the REAL feel of being down in New Orleans (even if your not a real Cajun like Jimmie C Newman)get yourself a copy of this great show!

"Enjoy"

3.0 out of 5 stars Elvis Presley's personal favorite film role August 17, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
"King Creole" from 1958,(the same year Elvis Presley was inducted into the U.S.Army),is a good drama with a few good musical numbers thrown in. Shot in glorious black&white and produced by Hal Wallis,who produced some of Mr. Presley's biggest hits("Loving You" from 1957,"Blue Hawaii" from 1961,"Girls!Girls! Girls!" from 1962) and directed by Michael Curtiz(the classic "Casablanca"),the story takes place in New Orleans and Elvis stars as Danny Fisher,a disillusioned high school drop out with designs on being a singer.Danny gets a job at the night club "King Creole". The picture features a fine supporting cast including the late,great Walter Matthau,very effective as a sleazy gangster,Carolyn Jones as the gangster's kept woman,Dean Jagger as Danny's father,Vic Morrow as a hoodlum and one of the gangster's henchman and Dolores Hart as Danny's girlfriend,(Ms. Hart after making several movies left acting and decided to become a nun in the mid '60's).Elvis's top ten hit single from this movie was "Hard Headed Woman".Also, "Trouble" was a well known number.Elvis Presley had said in interviews that of all the 30 odd pictures he had made Danny Fisher in "King Creole" was his personal favorite film role.And,Mr. Presley added that he hated most of the rest of the pictures he had made.

4.0 out of 5 stars The King of Elvis flicks June 2, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Even the stuffy New York Times praised Elvis Presley's performance in "King Creole," and why not? Everything clicks in this adaptation of Harold Robbins' novel, "A Stone for Danny Fisher." For once, Elvis has a good script, a terrific supporting cast, a first class director, and a role worthy of an actor which he shows himself to be while also singing an album's worth of outstanding songs. He's not the surly creep of "Jailhouse Rock," nor is he the bloated beach boy of most of his 60's movies. He's a good kid whose boredom with school and disappointment with his homelife leads him to explore life on the wrong side of the tracks where he encounters a switchblade flinging Vic Morrow, a sleazy Walter Matthau, and a beautiful but been around Carolyn Jones. Along the way, he also performs brilliant, knockout musical numbers like "New Orleans," "Trouble," "Dixieland Rock," and the amusing "Lover Doll" (no "Old MacDonald's Farm" in this movie). It all adds up to the King's best film, one of the few in which he wore his crown with honor.

4.0 out of 5 stars The King assumes the Throne August 12, 2004
Format:DVD
In King Creole,Elvis Presley proves himself a talented actor able to hold his own among the other very talented and more experienced co-stars in this excellent film.With Walter Matthau, Carolyn Jones,Dean Jagger, and Vic Morrow on board,Elvis was surrounded by high-caliber star power in his third motion picture.Add Michael Curtiz as director and the superb Lieber-Stoller soundtrack songs, and you have a winning formula. The picture delivers on all fronts.Elvis has a complex character to portray,and pulls it off with credibility and his unique charisma.This film is such a different species from his later films(mostly musical-comedies;some good,some not so good)that it begs the question,"why not more like this?".The songs could have been released as a stand-alone album even if there wasn't a movie associated with it.King Creole has Elvis in a serious dramatic role,AND singing his heart out, both with great success. Don't see it just because it's an "Elvis picture", see it because it's a really fine film.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Elvis' Best... February 1, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
"King Creole" was only one of a handful of movies that Elvis did that really showed his acting ability. A great supporting cast and songs that actually fit the scenes, showed that Elvis had what it took to be a great dramatic actor. This movie is a must see. You won't regret watching it!
