In "Easy Come, Easy Go" Elvis hits the high seas a Lt. (L.G.) Ted Jackson, and underwater demolitions expert who sets out with the skippers' daughter to find gold in a sunken wreck during his final service dive. Entangled in an action-packed adventure of romance and intrigue, the pair must battle adversaries on land and underwater as they attempt to claim the treasures before their plan is foiled. Featuring the songs "Love Machine" and the title tune "Easy Come, Easy Go."
Not the worst Elvis picture, but not near the top, either. This is the one with Elvis as a Navy frogman, diving for sunken treasure--which means lots of underwater photography (inspired by Thunderball, perhaps?). What's fun about it is seeing Elvis collide with the summer of love: he falls in with a beatnik buddy (Pat Harrington in a goatee) and meets a commune of artsy hippie types; they stage obscure "happenings," and Elvis calls 'em "kooks." It says something, though, when the musical highlight is a number called "Yoga Is as Yoga Does," staged in Elsa Lanchester's groovy yoga class. E.P. looks indifferent to the proceedings, an understandable reaction given the painful quality of the comedy (especially the old sea salt who's never been on water). The red Dodge convertible is sweet, however. --Robert Horton

Good music, funny looks at beatniks making a scene, and Elvis getting camera time are all reasons to see this movie. And if you wanted to catch a little more Dodie than what you saw in Spinout (yep. She was the hottie who played drums at the end of Spinout. Mama Mia!) then this is worth the trip. It's average on the Elvis Movie-O-Meter. It won't be your favorite, but it's a good enough addition to the library.
Her co-star is Elvis Presley, in one of his wierdest "worst" movies, actually a much better than average effort from that "lazy" late '60s Elvis era.
Just six songs, none lousy...but none good enough for a hit single. Or a "B"-side...you see kids, back in the days of plastic.......
A groovy story, with very agreeable support from Pat (the guy who played the Janitor in that MacKenzie Phillips sitcom...gimme a break, I'm 60), and veteran Hollywooders Elsa Lanchester, and Frank McGrath.
Interesting tidbit, with Elvis taking the bandstand to sing with his old group. He prefaces the action, cueing them by saying "Stop, You're Wrong Again", the original title of the tune, and the title that Elvis had thrown out in favor of "You Gotta Stop"!
Some cute, good-natured satire on Western California live in the mid-'60s, the new "fads", like yoga, body art, etc. In reality, Elvis was deeply absorbed in Eastern philosophy, so the production number "Yoga Is As Yoga Does" must have been painful.
The Extended Play soundtrack from this flick sold 30k! Not good. But, relatively speaking, not bad: time to make a "real" Elvis movie! It took about two years for Colonel Tom Parker, RCA, and whoever else to say...time for something different for the dude who turned the tables on the entertainment industry about 10 years before. That something different came in the form of a Television Special......
