Elvis Presley became a film star in 1956, and would go on to appear in a total of 33 feature films in a span of 14 years. The accompanying soundtracks are fan-sought rarities (both on CD or LP), but 8 of these albums will be available again this time in remastered sound. These 8 are among the best Elvis LP's recorded for his feature movies.
Girl Happy is a 1965 American musical romantic comedy and beach party film starring Elvis Presley in his 18th feature.
Nightclub singer Rusty Wells (Elvis) and his band have just closed their engagement at the club where they work in Chicago, and are just about ready to leave for their annual spring break trip to Fort Lauderdale, Floridaâ€”that is, until the club's owner, Big Frank (Harold Stone), extends their stay at his club, foiling the band's plans for some sun and fun in Florida.
The movie won a fourth place prize Laurel Award in the category Top Musical of 1965. It featured the song "Puppet on a String", which reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on the Adult Contemporary chart and in Canada, and was certified Gold by the RIAA.
