Blue Hawaii Review

Timothy has worked background in theatrical features and television, just for the fun of it, in films directed by Peter Segal and Christopher Nolan. His favorite film star is Bugs Bunny, and Timothy has discovered that most of the problems in life can be solved successfully (strangely enough) by asking “What would Bugs Bunny do?” Timothy has been involved with the Home Theater Forum since 2007 and has reported from Comic Con, interviewed Bruce Campbell and Danny Trejo, and reviewed classic animation and new theatrical releases on disc.

James L. Neibaur, author of The Elvis Movies, states on the commentary track that Blue Hawaii was the singer's "biggest box-office hit." It is possible that there is more than one contender for that title, depending on whether rereleases are included or not in the calculations.

The film certainly did well enough at the box-office for it to become the prototype for Elvis movies from then on: sunshine, lots of pretty girls, a bit of comedy and Elvis doing a few numbers.

The next Elvis/Paramount film we need from a new master is Girls! Girls! Girls! which is an unwatchable grain storm on DVD.

I am hoping for all of the other Paramount titles.
