Lucky Jackson arrives in town with his car literally in tow ready for the first Las Vegas Grand Prix. At least, he will be ready to race once he has the money to buy an engine. He gets the cash easily enough, but loses it when a pretty swimming pool manager takes his mind off things. It seems he will lose both the race and the girl. His problems don't get any easier when rival Elmo Mancini, a fellow racer and womaniser, gets in the way.

VERY GOOD 1964 Elvis movie - fun setting in Las Vegas.
Ann Margaret also quite entertaining...

Set in Las Vegas - This Musical/Romance from 1964, containing 12 Elvis songs, is sure to please any Presley fan.... (*Watch "What'd I Say?" video-clip*)

Elvis plays Lucky Jackson, a race-car driver, competing in the Las Vegas Grand Prix opposite his arch-rival, Count Elmo Mancini. To finance his entry, Lucky works the menial job of a casino waiter where he's naturally encouraged (on a regular basis) to sing and swivel his hips for the ever-adoring, ever-applauding customers.

It always seems to be that Lucky is forever chasing after the wrong girls, only to be continually ignoring the "right" one. And "Miss Right" in this case is the dazzling Ann-Margret as Rusty Martin, a local swimming instructor.

With the handsome, pre-fat Elvis, as well as an indescribably gorgeous Ann-Margret, and a dozen hot tunes, how could Viva Las Vegas not be expected to reap in a literal fortune at the box-office? This would definitely be one of Presley's most successful films of the 1960s.

The best Elvis Presley film and soundtrack. Viva Las Vegas is the only Elvis movie he shared equal billing with a co-star; the incomparable Ann-Margret. This was the follow up film to Ann-Margret's breakout film Bye Bye Birdie and the second musical film of three musicals she did that she stole the film (Bye Bye Birdie, Viva Las Vegas and Tommy) Ironically this soundtrack was not released on album format at the time. Definitely one of the hottest pairing of young musical stars in film history. The pair had gone steady for about a year and the undeniable chemistry they shared burns brightly on the screen.
