Paramount released four DVD’s the day before Elvis’ 67th birthday. The movies were ‘Fun in Acapulco’, ‘Easy Come Easy Go’, ‘Girls! Girls! Girls!’ and ‘Paradise Hawaiian Style’.
The package is the same as the videos which were released a few years back. The same dull cover art. Why not use the classic movie posters, like on the second edition of movies, like 'Viva Las Vegas’ and ‘Jailhouse Rock’. It's nice to see it released in a series with the same design, but unfortunaletly it doesn't match the previous four DVD's from Paramount on our shelf.
This release has the same little ammount of information on the back like the video's. Although these movies are not Elvis best movies, treated this way they will never appeal to a broader audience then the Elvis fans who can finally buy these on DVD.
The back contains a special section titled ‘Special Features’, but why add that when there are no special features on the DVD … (widescreen, English subtitles, Dolby 5.1 surround, English restored mono and French mono). The menu is basic (play movie, chapters, and audio settings), but well designed.
The movie is released in widescreen (16:9) which is almost a basic need for DVD releases, the image quality is good. The storyline is standard for a lot of Elvis’ movies, this time we find Elvis rocking and rolling under the waterline.
Elvis, as marine-diver this time, searches for a treasure together with dancer Joe Symington (Dodie Marshall). But his final treasure is the dancer... a known theme. The public disappeared already, but Elvis kept playing these roles. Although this is isn't Elvis' gold The Colonel probably found some gold with it ...
Ehhh ... what can we say about this one, another Elvis DVD for the collection? Probably fun for those who like the movie to have it in good quality, and the rerelease is reason for us to watch it again.
