Quotes

Dina Bishop: Oh, that's my car over there.
Ted Jackson: You really have it made, don't you? Fancy car, expensive boat, the whole works.
Dina Bishop: Jealous?
Ted Jackson: Sure. I'd like to have it myself. Where I come from, we didn't even wear shoes.
Dina Bishop: That must be why you like girls who go barefooted.
Ted Jackson: Girls? Barefooted?
Dina Bishop: Jo. She's kind of a beatnik, isn't she?
Ted Jackson: Well, if that means happily broke and full of all kind of crazy principles, that's what she is.

Easy Come, Easy Go (1967)

** (out of 4)

Elvis plays a former Navy frogman who discovers a buried treasure and must try and reach it before anyone else can. This is a pretty bad and stupid film but it thankfully enters into the camp territory and gets a few laughs along the way. The story is pretty bland and something we haven't seen in countless other films and lets not forget the subplot of Elvis and his women, which we've also seen in countless other films of his. As for Elvis, he isn't horrible here but there's not too much to the performance. He seems a bit livelier here than in the previous picture I watched but he's still a long way off from an actual good performance. The title track and "The Love Machine" are pretty good tunes but "Yoga Is As Yoga Does" is pretty embarrassing. "I'll Take You", written by Ed Wood's former lover Dolores Fuller, isn't too bad and Ray Charles' "Leave My Woman Alone" comes off fairly good.
