February 13 - DVD Re-issues

Paramount Pictures re-issued the movies 'G.I. Blues' 1960), 'Girls! Girls! Girls!' (1962), 'Paradise Hawaiian Style' (1966), 'Blue Hawaii' and 'Fun In Acapulco' once more on DVD. 

Synopsis 'G.I. Blues':

The year was 1960. A payola scandal shocks the music world. Movie fans are introduced to glorious Smell-O-Vision. The 50-star flag is adopted. And in 'G.I. Blues', Elvis adopts an on-screen persona he knows well in real life–a singin’ G.I. in West Germany. 

Eager to open a stateside nightclub after his hitch in khakis, he takes part in a wager to raise the dough he needs. The bet: he can melt the iceberg heart of a willowy dancer (Juliet Prowse). But all bets may be off when real love intervenes…

Synopsis: 'Girls! Girls! Girls!':

The year was 1962. Teens twist at the Peppermint Lounge. John Glenn orbits Earth. Wilt Chamberlain scores 100 points in a single game. And Elvis digs the possibilities of 'Girls! Girls! Girls!'.

This time he’s a charter-boat skipper who helps tourists land the big ones. Of course, plenty of beautiful girls (including Stella Stevens) want to land Elvis. But there’s something Elvis likes almost as much as romance–a boat! He yearns for a sleek sailboat with a $10,000 price tag. Let’s see, that makes him about $9,999 short.

Synopsis: 'Paradise Hawaiian Style':

The year was 1966. A little-known series called Star Trek beams up. Valley of the Dolls is the hot book. Half of all TVs sold are color sets. And in 'Paradise, Hawaiian Style', Elvis takes to the skies over the island paradise of Kauai. 

He's a partner in a helicopter charter service. Romance, naturally, is in the air for the King... but his business may be grounded. A threatened suspension of his pilot's license means he may have to kiss his assets goodbye.

Synopsis 'Blue Hawaii'

The year was 1961. Fallout shelters dot suburban backyards. Ken joins Barbie. Roger Maris slugs 61 home runs. And Elvis Presley is in paradise, playing an ex-G.I. who comes home to 'Blue Hawaii'. His mother (Angela Lansbury) expects him to climb the corporate ladder. But Elvis would rather wear an aloha shirt than a white collar, so he goes to work as a tour guide. Lucky Elvis: his first customers are a careful of cuties. Elvis, lovely scenery, lovelier girls and rock-a-hula songs - now that's paradise! Featuring the hit songs 'Blue Hawaii', 'Can't Help Falling In Love' and more. 

Synopsis: 'Fun In Acapulco':

The year was 1963. The hot line links the White House and the Kremlin. The first major pop art exhibition stirs up a major buzz. The Whisky-A-Go-Go opens. And in 'Fun In Acapulco', Elvis heads south of the border, where he’s fired as a boat hand, hired as a lifeguard and singer, admired by local beauties (including Ursula Andress) and inspired to jump off a 136-foot cliff. Put another way: he overcomes a fear of heights in spectacular fashion. Spectacular, too, are the scenic vistas and Latin-beat tunes. Dive in!
