Roustabout

The soundtrack slaps.

Elvis Presley lands one of his biggest co-stars in feisty carnival owner Barbara Stanwyck, and enjoys one of his deepest song catalogs.

“Poison Ivy League,” Little Egypt,” “Hard Knocks,” “Big Love, Big Heartache,” and the hit parade stretches from opening number to closing song.

Presley doesn’t have to stretch too far as an actor, playing a leather jacket-wearing, motorcycle-riding man of the road, but the film is light ‘n frothy fun all the way.

The movie poster hails Elvis as a “roving, restless, reckless roustabout,” and they could have also added “electrifying, entertaining, and e-mazing.”
