FP112: “If You Can’t Find a Partner…"

Elvis Presley at his most Elvis-like-ness! In one of his few films not overseen by Hal B. Wallis, Elvis shines as the young ex-con/laborer who finds his singing talent while in the hoosegow, assisted by another singing con, played by the great Mickey Shaughnessy. Judy Tyler, whose life ended much too soon, plays The King’s love interest and her sudden death shortly after the completion of this film kept Elvis from watching it for many years.
