Comedy, mystery and mayhem combine when Elvis Presley plays Guy in "Double Trouble," a romp involving stolen gems, trench-coated defectives--that is, detectives!--and more. Through it all, a guy's gotta do what a guy's gotta do. That means performing a tune array that includes the title cut, "City By Night," and "Could I Fall in Love?" "Long Legged Girl" and "There's So Much World to See." Trouble was never this cool and this much fun.

Star. But then he played pretty much what the the crooked manager got for him. Still I enjoyed it.
The plot is typical: Elvis falls for two women (that's certainly been done before), and gets into some sort of conflict. This time it's trying to save his girlfriend from her Uncle Gerald, who is after her inheritance.
OK, the plot isn't much, but Elvis looks good in some of the outfits he wears in this picture. The songs are not much either, especially the horrid rendition of "Old MacDonald". The best songs are "Long Legged Girl" and "City By Night".
At least this is a picture in which I didn't cringe. The dialogue isn't quite as corny as some of the other pictures, and it doesn't get too boring either.
A marginal "thumbs up" from me.
In a way it revealed itself a blessing, since the plots became carbon copies of each other, in which all he had to do anyway, was to look smart and to sing songs. A thing he could do much better on a live stage.
"Double Trouble" was a vehicle for the "King" for European audiences, just as "G.I. Blues" had attempted seven years earlier.
Unfortunately, this effort backfired and the movie had cold receptions in Europe, except maybe in Belgium, where the movie is supposed to take place.
Its plot is a typical cliched slapstick comedy with romance interwoven in it, here and there, just to allow Elvis to do what he was good at.
Banal and shabby, just meant for Elvis fans, it is a very forgettable movie, perhaps to join other bad movies like "Change of Habit", "Harum Scarum" and
"The Trouble with Girls".
The transfer of it on DVD on the contrary, is very well done, with a very fine resolution and sharp colors. The sound also has been taken care of, and although conventional, sparkles for its clarity.
Just recommended for die-hard Elvis fans. For the others, I would recommend to stick to his earlier movies, such as "Wild in the Country" or "King Creole".

Struggling to find something positive for the movie: perhaps a song or two. Elvis going through the motions, he was clearly heading south...... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jake
