BLUE HAWAII
1961, Paramount, 101 min, Dir: Norman Taurog

Before all the formula ‘60s movies that turned Elvis Presley from an icon into a self-parody, there was this sparkling original that subsequent filmmakers sought to use as the cookie-cutter guarantee to Presley movie success. Sumptuous cinematography, frothy plot, pleasing comic turns, skillful acting from co-stars Angela Lansbury and Joan Blackman, and songs as enchanting as the island paradise all aim to please. From “Rock-A-Hula Baby” to “Can't Help Falling In Love” and the title song - this is classic Elvis 2.0, post-army and pre-rhinestone. The movie and the soundtrack were among the most successful of his career.


Elvis' birthday will be celebrated at the new Maui and Sons Restaurant in the Egyptian's courtyard. Activities, food and drink specials, karaoke and more starting at 4 PM. Details online.
