It's kismet, I tell you. Yesterday, driving around town, I was listening to this CD all day. Lo and behold, that night, as we were flipping through channels, TCM was playing Harum Scarum in glorious HD! Admittedly, this is not the strongest Elivis soundtrack you will ever hear but it makes up for it's rock and roll shortcomings with a heaping dose of cheese. The movie is about as anti-politically correct as you can get and features a browned Elvis seductively wooing an exotic 10-year-old dancer. Great stuff. Girl Happy is about a bouncy as the king could get (I think they actually sped up the tape to make it extra-jumpy) and provides the rollicking that Harum Scarum was missing.
