Ahh YES !!!


Elvis and The Beauty Queen, a made for TV product, is available. Haven't seen this since 1983 or 1984! Just had a glance at it now. Certainly shows it's age

Don Johnson plays Elvis but even back in the day i found he was too OTT.
I had a good laugh just now on the "Silent Night" sequence where he depicts an Elvis whose the worse for wear, playing the carol on the Piano then bashes it :smt005 I doubt it if that ever happened. Silly pointless scene.

Stephanie Zimbalist by contrast, who was in Remington Steele TV series, played Linda Thompson she was marvelous throughout.

One performance i liked was "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" Vegas scene but don't recall who was the singer Johnson was miming to. Scroll to 33-minute point.


am going to download this thing now and then just make up a separate edit of the best scenes iike
particular TFTEISYF scene.

Wonderful movie. No idea how Day didn't get an Oscar nod for this.


Accused of being "a nerd in his 20s." I wish.

Move Over Darling (1963) available over on dailymotion !

Stars Doris Day, James Garner and Polly Bergen. This was going to be Something's Gotta Give with Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin but Marilyn died the year before, while this film was being made.
Script was then reworked as a typical Doris Day comedy and she also waxed the title song.

Delightful stuff ,AYE! :smt023
