  • Cast
Race car driver Lucky Jackson (Elvis Presley) pulls into Las Vegas, ready for the city's first-ever Grand Prix. All he needs is enough money to buy a new engine, so he takes a job as a waiter at a casino. Lucky finds time to court the beautiful swimming pool manager, Rusty Martin (Ann-Margret), with his crooning skills -- but both the race and Rusty may be up for grabs when rival Count Elmo Mancini (Cesare Danova) rolls into town.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this fluffy escapism could pretty much be an advertisement for Las Vegas and the good times Nevada's tourist destination offers, including betting, drinking, and dangerous race-car driving. It's all pretty much harmless here -- if there were such things as topless showgirls, gambling addiction, and legal bordellos you'd never know it from watching this movie.

Sexual Content

Girls in bikinis at poolside and occasionally slinky showgirl numbers. Nothing explicit, though.

Violence

Elvis fires sixguns in the air to calm down a raucous saloon. Cars wipe out during a grand prix race.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

While he's flirtatious, Lucky is still an all-around decent guy who's even friends with his romantic rival. Ann-Margaret's heroine is spunky and nobody's fool (she proves she can even outshoot and out motorcycle-ride Elvis), but she acts the klutz in a race-car garage in one demeaning scene. All other women are objectified showgirl fantasies, practically window-shopped by the men.

Consumerism

Practically a tourist ad for the Las Vegas, Nevada area and attractions, with the qualifier that most of the casinos and clubs pictured by name have since closed.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Recreational drinking and rowdiness. Rusty's dad talks about getting "lit up" on booze.
