King Creole Reviews:

Elvis Presley plays Danny Fisher, a misunderstood teenager who is forced to live in a neighbourhood frequented by hoodlums because his father's business went bankcrupt and lost their another house. Danny flunks out of high school and does few dead end jobs in order to create ends meet, but it is discovered that he has a talent for singing and he is hired by nightclub owner Charlie Le Grand. However, sadistic blackmailer and criminal Maxie Fields (Walter Matthau) also has corrupt designs on Danny's talent.Probably one of Presley's finest films with a fairly powerful story and assured direction by Michael (Casablanca) Curtiz. The acting is nice from Presley in one of his better roles and Matthau scores as the ruthless gang boss. The movie is shot in superb noir black & white and the memorable tunes contain "King Creole", "Trouble" and "As Long As I Have You".


An unusual Elvis Presley vehical which now gives him the occasion to act. Elvis was a talented actor who was place in crap for most of his career. The Hollywood system everytime place him in movies where he sings without doing much else. Its only when he worked with talented directors such as Michael Curtiz and Don Siegal that his abilities as an actor were totally used. Lord Creole(1958) is such a movie where he is given the possibility to act and he passes with flying colors. Lord Creole(1958) and the western, Charro(1968) are my two favourite Elvis Presley movies because of their dark tone and the perfect acting performances by Elvis. One of the better directed Elvis movies by veteran filmmaker and Casablanca(1942) director, Michael Curtiz. One of the folks who wrote the storyline was Michael V. Gazzo, who would soon enjoy an necessary role in The Godfather Part 2(1974). Walter Matthaw is terrific in one of his pre Odd Couple and comedic roles. A musical Noir done during the final year of the category before becoming extinct.


Elvis Presley can act! This is perhaps his greatest film and certainly the one with the strongest plot. Based on the Harold Robbins novel ‘A Stone for Danny Fisher', Elvis plays Danny with that teenage angst you'd associate more with James Dean or the young Marlon Brando. The melody too is exceptional, with the sexy game track alongside of such gems as ‘Steadfast, Loyal and True', ‘Crawfish' (that unusual of things, a duet between Elvis and Kitty White), ‘Hard Headed Woman', and ‘Trouble'.The helping cast is also eminently watchable – Dean Jagger, Walter Matthau, Vic Morrow, Carolyn Jones – and support to transport the pace along. The look of the movie in its non-musical moments is strictly noir, and the entire piece is slickly directed by Michael Curtiz. ‘King Creole', and a handful of another Presley movies, tip at the film career that he should have had without his manager Col. Parker's constant greed to display his peacock client in an ever-grating role of innocence to create money.
