Still image from the film Blue Hawaii
Elvis Presley is in paradise, playing an ex-G.I. Chad Gates, who has just come home to Hawaii after his military service abroad—mirroring Elvis’ own return to the U.S. after his military service in Germany ended in 1960. Gates’ mother (Angela Lansbury) expects him to climb the corporate ladder, but he would rather wear an aloha shirt than a white collar. So, Gates goes to work as a tour guide, and his first customers are a carful of cuties who might just end his career before it has a chance to take off. (Digital Presentation)
