Oh, yeah...Elvis stars in it, too. Ha ha.
The sound was horrible had on loudest, still weak audio and a constant buzzing. The pic quality was like a burnt disc and after 1 hour it shut itself down so I couldn't see anymore and the disc looked liked it had fried when I took it out
Now, I have a brand new DVD Player region free and all my other dvds works just fine on it. So it's the disc.have bought a new copy now from another seller cos I DID LIKE the movie a lot from what I saw.
I thought the story line was very boring and dragged on, also there isn't enough Elvis in the movie. If you're a die hard Elvis fan then for sure this is worth a spot in your collection, however if you want to see Elvis at his best in a semi better movie look elsewhere.
Interestingly, Elvis is completely relaxed in a way he rarely seems to be in the bulk of his films from the mid-to-late sixties. He's a little rougher around the edges (a newfound love of cigars), but it all works. He's both invested and confident (perhaps knowing he was soon to depart to a new phase of his career after his '68 Comeback Special). Upon watching this particular film, one might agree Elvis certainly could have handled the acting gravitas needed to pull off "A Star is Born" in 1975, perhaps very realistically garnering his first Oscar nomination. Sadly, it wasn't to be.
But, "The Trouble with Girls", along with "Wild in the Country" (1961), and "King Creole" (1958), feature an Elvis where, upon watching, it's hard to remember how anyone could have viewed him as a poor actor. Of course, all three of these films share common variables: serious actors, talented direction, a tight script, and invested professionals from art design cinematography to costumes.
If none of that is enough, it's worth mentioning Elvis is better looking than a thousand movie stars in this film. He is at his physical and charismatic peak in 1969.
A great little, sadly too-forgotten, film.
