Girls! Girls! Girls!

Girls! Girls! Girls! is just that - with Elvis Presley there as the main attraction. Hal Wallis' production puts the entertainer back into the non-dramatic, purely escapist light musical vein. The thin plot, scripted by Edward Anhalt and Allan Weiss from an original story by Weiss, has him the romantic interest of two girls. Hackneyed tale is of poor boy fisherman who meets rich girl who doesn't tell him she is rich but who, naturally, falls in love with him.

Girls! Girls! Girls! is just that – with Elvis Presley there as the main attraction. Hal Wallis’ production puts the entertainer back into the non-dramatic, purely escapist light musical vein. The thin plot, scripted by Edward Anhalt and Allan Weiss from an original story by Weiss, has him the romantic interest of two girls. Hackneyed tale is of poor boy fisherman who meets rich girl who doesn’t tell him she is rich but who, naturally, falls in love with him.

Weiss also penned story for the earlier Blue Hawaii, which Norman Taurog also directed for Wallis.

Most striking thing about the picture is the introduction of new Paramount pactee Laurel Goodwin, who makes an auspicious film bow. Youngster has the cute, home spun potential of a Doris Day.

Stella Stevens, however, is wasted in a standard role as a sultry torch singer who has given up ever really nailing the guy. She does her best but, aside from singing three songs (her first singing in a film) in a style suitable for the character, there just isn’t enough for her to do.

Girls! Girls! Girls!
