From Big House To Space Needle, From The Old West To Today's West: 4 Fascinating Presley Faces.Jailhouse RockOne of the greatest ways to satisfy a fan's inner Elvis is to go to Jailhouse Rock, the 1957 box-office hit that's Elvis "Presley's best film" according to Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide.The King plays Vince Everett, jailed for manslaughter after a bar fight. There, Vince learns to belt out tunes instead of saloon patrons and after being paroled, follows a bumpy road to music andmovie success. Six Presley songs by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller spike the story, including Treat Me Nice, I Wanna Be Free and the shimmy-shakin' title tune that was Presley's favorite of all his films' production numbers. "It's the beast in me," Elvis says after kissing Peggy (Judy Tyler). Yeah, but it's the best of him too!It Happened At The World's FairFun, music and Elvis all happen in this romp boasting one of the best backdrops of any Elvis Presley movie: the 1962 Seattle World's Fair,with its showpiece Space Needle, monorail and more.The King plays pilot-for-hire Mike, whose hope of starting his own flying business is grounded by the gambling of his co-pilot Danny (Gary Lockwood). The guys hitch to Seattle, where Mike finds romance, Danny finds easy marks and both find problems prior to a Happy Ending. Kurt Russell, star of 1979's Elvis biopic, plays the child who wallops Mike in the shins. And among the 10 songs are I'm Falling in Love Tonight, Relax and the gold record One Broken Heart for Sale.Stay Away, JoeJust when Navajo rodeo star Joe Lightcloud has it all figured out, his plans go up in smoke.
