365 Movies: Speedway Review

Speedway stars Elvis Presley, Bill Bixby and Nancy Sinatra in this 1968 film. The film is about a race car driver, Steve Grayson(Presley), who doesn't know what kind of money trouble he is in until Susan Jacks(Sinatra) comes to visit. His manager and long time friend Kenny Donford(Bixby) helped spend the money but he can never keep his hands off the money. As typical with an Elvis movie, there was many great songs; my favorite song was 'Your Groovy Self' sung by Nancy. Nancy and Elvis made a good couple but I paid more attention to Bill and Elvis. They were so adorable! I've loved Bill since I saw an episode he was in of That Girl, where he played Ted Bessell's best friend. If you haven't seen the episode, you've gotta catch it, it's hilarious! Overall, it was a good little film, nothing special but not a terrible film.

Review for Tomorrow: Second Chorus

Happy 75th Birthday Elvis Presley!

Now enjoy Nancy singing!
