Elvis spends some time in the local penitentiary, where he learns to mime to a backing track, wave a guitar around and swivel his pre-cheeseburger hips. On his release it's not long before he's the King of Rock'n'Roll. Art it ain't, but there's a great Leiber and Stoller score in this early not-too-bad Presley screen outing.
