Elvis Presley again plays a successful racer (see SPINOUT, below) in this, his 27th film. Presley is nice guy who gives most of his stock car winnings away while still managing to sustain an opulent rock'n'roll lifestyle. Unfortunately, his manager, Bixby, has mismanaged the racer's funds

(apparently he lost a lot betting on horses), leaving Presley flat broke. As if that weren't enough, Bixby has also bungled Presley's taxes, which sends the boots of Nancy Sinatra, as a miniskirted IRS agent, walkin' to Presley's door. Track scenes were filmed at the Charlotte Speedway in North

Carolina. Presley appendages the Jordanaires (as backup singers) and Col. Tom Parker (as "technical advisor") again lend their dubious support here. Songs include "Your Groovy Self" (Lee Hazelwood, sung by Sinatra), "Speedway," "He's Your Uncle, Not Your Dad," "Who Are You? (Who Am I?)," "Let

Yourself Go," "Your Time Hasn't Come Yet, Baby," "There Ain't Nothing Like a Song," "Five Sleepy Heads," "Western Union," "Mine," "Goin' Home," and "Suppose" (Mel Glazer, Stephen Schlaks, sung by Presley).
