Elvis Presley is Josh Morgan, an Air Force man sent into the backwoods to persuade some locals to sell their land for use as a missile base. Pappy Tatum (Arthur O'Connell), patriarch of a hillbilly family distantly related to Josh, doesn't want to sell and fears that his moonshining

business may be upset by the whole deal. Several romantic liaisons develop--between Josh and his "kissin' cousins," between Jodie Tatum (Presley again, in a dual role) and a WAC--and everything works out for the best in the end, with the Air Force getting its land and the Presleys getting their

girls. Two Elvises make this already very thin plot even less believable, especially since the story has a way of stopping at just any point to allow Presley to sing. Songs include: "Kissin' Cousins," "There's Gold in the Mountains," "One Boy, Two Little Girls," "Catchin' on Fast," "Tender

Feeling" (Bill Giant, Bernie Baum, Florence Kaye), "Smokey Mountain Boy" (Lenore Rosenblatt, Victor Millrose), "Anyone Could Fall in Love with You" (Bennie Benjamin, Sol Marcus, Louis A. DeJesus), "One Is Enough" (Sid Tepper, Roy C. Bennett), "Barefoot Ballad" (Dolores Fuller, Lee Morris), Echoes

of Love" (Bob Roberts, Paddy McMains), and "It's a Long Lonely Highway" (Doc Pomus, Mort Shuman).
