Elvis and Ann-Margret Rock Vegas and it Will Never Be the Same!
A race car driver becomes involved with a casino dancer in the city of glitter and gold.

"Elvis and Ann-Margret are well teamed in this popular Presley vehicle...  Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide
"Hallucinatory but fabulously entertaining.  Nell Minow, Movie Mom

Editor's Note
Elvis Presley is Lucky Jackson, an aspiring auto racer with a dream of winning the Grand Prix. Sexy, spunky Ann-Margret is Rusty Martin, the swimming instructor who falls for him against her will, hating the idea of her man risking his life in a race car. Lucky struggles to raise the money to buy a new engine while Rusty tries to convince him to give up racing for her.

George Sidney, a seasoned veteran of the lavish Hollywood musical, proves the perfect helmsman for this high-voltage Elvis vehicle. The King croons, shakes, and shimmies while Ann-Margret shows her mastery of 1960s-style gyrations in the glitzy, electric production numbers. The two charismatic stars are at their best during a hilarious first date, which includes dancing, motorcycling, dressing up at a wild West show, skiing, and going for a ride in a helicopter. How could they not hit it off? Their powerful magnetism centers this glittering, extravagant treasure chest of a film that ranks among Elvis's best.

Expert Review Viva Las Vegas - Deluxe Edition - DVD Review
By: The Masked Movie Snobs Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 8/6/2010 2:07 PM
Elvis Presley made some forgettable movies, but he also made a few that have become classics. Viva Las Vegas is among the latter and is often cited as one of Presley’s best films. Presley stars as Lucky Jackson, a racecar driver headed to Las Vegas to participate in the city’s first annual Grand Prix. Jackson needs a new engine for his car if he wants to race though and sets about raising the money while in Las Vegas. He does get the money, but manages to lose it all when it falls prey to the hotel’s swimming pool. It is here that he meets Rusty Martin (Ann Margret), the hotel’s swim instructor who immediately strikes his fancy....read the full review

Plot Summary
A volcanic eruption of song, dance, and high-gloss production design, provided for by a lean narrative in which Elvis, in race car mode, hits the Vegas strip to win enough dough to rebuild his engine in time for the proverbial big race.

Professional Reviews

Variety 8 of 10
The sizzling combination of Elvis Presley and Ann-Margaret is enough to carry Viva Las Vegas over the top. The picture is fortunate in having two such commodities for bait, because beyond several flashy musical numbers, a glamorous locale and one electrifying auto race sequence, the production is a pretty trite and heavyhanded affair, puny in story development and distortedly preoccupied with anatomical oomph...The film is designed to dazzle the eye, assault the ear and ignore the brain. Vegas, of course, is the setting of Sally Benson's superficial contrivance about an auto racing buff (Presley) trying to raise funds to purchase an engine for the racer with which he hopes to win the Grand Prix...Hackneyed yarn provides the skeletal excuse for about 10 musical interludes, a quick tour of the US gambling capital and that one slam-bang climactic sequence that lifts the film up by its bootstraps just when it is sorely in need of a lift.
