Film Season : 'Jailhouse Rock' (Cert.U)
 

Director: Richard Thorpe, 1957

Starring: Elvis Presley, Judy Tyler & Mickey Shaughnessy.

Jailhouse Rock is probably the best Elvis film, a musical drama full of charm and grit which catches Elvis's raw magnetism and energy.

Hot tempered construction worker Vince Everett accidentally kills a man in a bar fight and spends two years in a penitentiary.

Inside, Vince is taken under the wing of cell mate Hunk Houghton, a bank robber and washed-up country singer who notices Vince's musical potential, teaches him guitar and explains the dog-eat-dog nature of the music industry.

On release Vince is eventually spotted by a music promoter who launches his career and makes him a star, but Vince's arrogant self-centred nature starts to affect the relationships around him and when Hunk shows up looking for a slice of the pie...things get ugly.

I love the fact that Elvis plays a sneering anti-hero bursting with charisma,

Jailhouse Rock is a great vehicle, really showing him at his swivel hipped best.

All the songs are beautifully sung, and you can tell Elvis really enjoyed strutting his stuff for the title track showpiece.

He really is the King.
