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,
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
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
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
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
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.
