Loving You

Elvis Presley's second screen appearance is a simple story, in which he can be believed, which has romantic overtones and exposes the singer to the kind of thing he does best, i.e. shout out his rhythms, bang away at his guitar and perform the strange, knee-bending, hip-swinging contortions that are his trademark.

Apart from this, Presley shows improvement as an actor. It’s not a demanding part and, being surrounded by a capable crew of performers, he comes across as a simple but pleasant sort. Film introes Dolores Hart, in an undemanding role as Presley’s girl.

Story has Presley picked up by Lizabeth Scott, a publicity girl touring with a hillbilly band on a whistlestop tour. She gets Wendell Corey, the leader of the outfit, to take on Presley, and they stunt him into a rock ‘n’ roll personality. Of course, there are complications and Presley takes himself off just as he’s supposed to go on a national TV show.
