Can’t Help Falling In Love With Hawaii
Blue Hawaii, the title song of this film, was originally from the score of another Paramount film Waikiki Wedding which starred Bing Crosby in 1937. Bing sold a few records of that one, albeit they were 78s back then, and Elvis nicely revives it and sells a few more.

Crosby’s film was made to take advantage of a whole lot of publicity he received for a trip to Hawaii. But Paramount as they usually did with his films back they made them on the cheap and Hawaii for Waikiki Wedding was recreated on the back lot.

Bing must have been a little jealous and who could have blamed him when Paramount did this film completely on location in Hawaii for the King. And Elvis got to go back to Hawaii for another film in Paradise, Hawaiian Style.

Elvis got a whole lot of musical numbers here including the title tune which he sings over the opening credits. He does a rockabilly version of the French song Alouette and with different lyrics, the Mexican love ballad, La Paloma. And he borrows a hit from Andy Williams when he reprises the Hawaiian Wedding Song.

Of course no film set in Hawaii is complete without Aloha Oe. But the big song from this film is one of Presley’s greatest Can’t Help Falling In Love With You. He sings it during a scene for a birthday party for Joan Blackman’s grandmother. It’s sort of done in a throwaway manner like the producer’s didn’t think it would be the big number in the film.

It might surprise Presley fans that this blockbuster hit was also recorded by another RCA Victor artist named Perry Como for one of his albums. Perry does a nice job with it, but it ain’t a patch on the King’s version.

Elvis is a rich young kid who’d like very much to get out from under Mom and Dad and prove himself. He’s even done a hitch in the army, but that doesn’t help. Parents are played by Roland Winters and Angela Lansbury.

Angela Lansbury recounted a story where she and her husband had dinner with Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis when they were casting Blue Hawaii. She said Elvis was a nice, polite young man who barely said three words during the dinner. The talk was all from Colonel Tom who was making all kinds of offers to the future Jessica Fletcher to be in this film.

Angela’s career was somewhat in a dry spell, she hadn’t made The Manchurian Candidate yet or appeared on Broadway in Mame. So she was quite willing to appear.

I gained some insight into how Colonel Parker handled Elvis with that story. If you look at the cast and even the behind the camera credits of his films, you’ll see them populated with a whole lot of Hollywood veterans. I’ll bet there were many such dinners during Elvis’s film career.

To be sure Presley was certainly the Colonel’s meal ticket. But I would have to say that he made every effort to see that Elvis and his films were given the best possible production values. I think that’s why the King had a long sustained film career until public tastes change which they inevitably do. Also musicals, even Elvis’s became too cost prohibitive to produce any more.

Blue Hawaii marks the height of Presley’s singing and film career. The Beatles hadn’t come on the scene yet, the King was still ruling the roost on the record charts and his films were grossing big box office.

And unless your Bing Crosby and feel a twinge of jealousy that his Hawaii film was done on the cheap, you’ll like Blue Hawaii very much. It’s nice entertainment from a great entertainer.

The Blueprint for Mediocrity
Fresh out of the U.S. Army, singing and guitar-strumming Elvis Presley (as Chadwick “Chad” Gates) returns to his Hawaiian island home, and pretty sweetheart Joan Blackman (as Maile Duval). “On you, wet is my favorite color,” Mr. Presley tells Ms. Blackman, but he is tempted by other beautiful women in bathing suits. Presley also resists settling down as heir to his family’s pineapple business, much to the chagrin of mother Angela Lansbury (as Sarah Lee). Ms. Lansbury cries, “What did I do wrong?”

Blowing all previous Presley pictures out of the water at the box office, “Blue Hawaii” pretty much set the stage for the “Elvis travelogue” movie, unfortunately. It isn’t the best of the lot, but the combination of the lush locales and Hawaiian-flavored soundtrack has an undeniably intoxicating effect. It’s positively sleep-inducing.

The soundtrack spent a whopping twenty weeks at #1 on the charts. Classic single “Can’t Help Falling in Love” / “Rock-a-Hula Baby” hit #1 around the world. Though not a single in America, “No More” followed it to #1 in a few areas, also. Presley’s rendition of “Hawaiian Wedding Song” and the title track are classics in their own way. It’s too bad all the financial success didn’t embolden anyone to take a few more chances with Presley as an actor – although, to be fair, he looks neither willing nor able herein.
