Review: ‘Easy Come, Easy Go’

Easy Come, Easy Go stars Elvis Presley as an underwater demolitions expert who finds lost treasure. Good balance of script and songs, plus generally amusing performances by a competent, well-directed cast, add up to diverting entertainment.

Easy Come, Easy Go stars Elvis Presley as an underwater demolitions expert who finds lost treasure. Good balance of script and songs, plus generally amusing performances by a competent, well-directed cast, add up to diverting entertainment.

Partnered with ex-biz partner Pat Harrington (who comes across very well as a bearded beatnik type), Elvis faces surmountable problems in the resistance of Dodie Marshall, whose grandfather owned the sunken ship on which the treasure is discovered.

Elsa Lanchester shines in her bit as the kooky yoga instructor, and Diki Lerner sticks out as an effete artist with a flair for turning automobiles into mobiles.
