Viva Las Vegas

More like Viva Ann-Marget, am I right?

The sassiest hip shaker in town steals the movie from Elvis, and that’s not easy.

The King might have held his own against the likes of big-timers like Barbara Stanwyck (Roustabout) and Walter Matthau (King Creole).

But once Ann-Margret starts dancing — likely causing an entire generation of boys to hit puberty right there in the theater — the game was up.

The best Elvis can do is play back-up in his own movie, croon a few songs, and get the heck out of the way every time his co-star melts the camera.

Smart decision.
