50th Anniversary screening sponsored by the Elvis, And Podcast with Special Guest Mod Betty from Retro Roadmap. Plus: Elvis movie tunes spun by the Thrifty Discount DJs before the show! To commemorate the 40th Anniversary of The King’s passing, the Colonial presents this summertime musical comedy romp in which the son of a Texas oil tycoon (Elvis) trades places with a poor waterski instructor (Will Hutchins) to see if people really like him for who he is – or if they’re just after his money. E soon finds himself competing with smarmy millionaire playboy (Bill Bixby) over the affection of (Shelly Fabares) – and the trophy for the annual speedboat race. If that wasn’t cool enough, you get to hear Elvis perform such hits as You Don’t Know Me, the High Hopes-esque Confidence, and the title tune!
