The year was 1960. A payola scandal shocks the music world. Movie fans are introduced to glorious Smeii-O-Vision. The 50-star flag is adopted. And in GI Blues, Elvis adopts an on-screen persona he knows well in real life – a singin’ GI 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 iceburg heart of a willowy dancer. But all bets may be off when real love intervenes….
