Elvis's Date With Ann Margret In Viva Las Vegas

Ok, one of my favorite Elvis movies. Yeah, they're cheesy, I know, but I still enjoy them!

So, Elvis is trying to get a date with Ann Margret's character. She finally agrees, and has Elvis meet her at the college the next morning, where she's teaching the kids dancing. Elvis arrives right in the middle of Ann's routine. She wants him to get up there to dance, Elvis begs off, then finally says he'll do a song. They end up doing a big song and dance routine that gets the college kids all riled up. Then, they start the date.

1. Skeet shooting - Ann shows Elvis up on the range, beating him mercilessly.

2. On to small cycle/moped riding, touring the area.

3. Next, in a ghost town, doing a gunfight reenactment (Ann wins).

4. Up above the city in a helicopter, with Elvis as the pilot. (Borrowed the 'copter from an old air force buddy who owed him a favor)

5. Next scene, Elvis and Ann out on the lake waterskiing together. (Never saw who was driving the boat, a rental that came with a driver?)

6. Then, to Ann Margret's house, where her father (William Demarest) wants to cook them supper. Elvis sings another song.

7. Finally, dancing at a club, where Elvis ends up on stage, singing again and playing a guitar.

*WHEW* I got tired just typing all of that!

So, have YOU ever had a date like that? Seems like a bit much, for just one day! big grin smiley

It was great when Elvis did a sneer on TV once and said, "See that? That's how I did 27 movies."

He filmed "Follow That Dream" where I live. They still celebrate it, and even have a road named for the movie.

The actual beach location has changed a bit in the last 50 years...

Then and Now


Still a fun show

Elvis always got the girl. Or at least tried. Look at some of the screen kisses. You can see the 'girl' almost always avoiding the kiss.

For our 5th anno in 1997, my late wife and I renewed our wedding vows at Graceland Chapel in Las Vegas. I had a designer buddy make some postcards for the occasion to use as invites. We used the Viva Las Vegas movie poster artwork and my buddy placed my wife's and my head in place of Ann's and Elvis's heads; they were both dancing. It was super fun, and we actually had a pretty good crowd. Ah, memories. Thanks for the pleasant reminder!
