Fun, music and Elvis all happen in this romp boasting one of the best backdrops of any Elvis Presley movie: the Seattle World's Fair, with its showpiece Space Needle, monorail and more. The King plays pilot-for-hire Mike, whose hope of starting his own flying business is grounded by the gambling of his co-pilot Danny Gary Lockwood. The guys hitch to Seattle, where Mike finds romance, Danny finds easy marks and both find problems prior to a Happy Ending. Kurt Russell, star of 's Elvis biopic, plays the child who wallops Mike in the shins. If he's selling, we're buying! The novelty backdrop of the Seattle World's Fair lends wonderful space-age scenery to this Elvis vehicle. The King co-stars with a pre- Gary Lockwood as freelance pilots stranded in Seattle, where Elvis spends more time babysitting a little kid than panting after ostensible love interest Joan O'Brien. There's more plot than usual for a Presley picture, which in this case is not a good thing, and the songs are pallid, save "One Broken Heart for Sale. Just three years out of the Army, Elvis's persona is thoroughly square and tame, ruffled only by the occasional comic double-take. And yes indeed, that is little Kurt Russell, future star of Elvis , kicking the King in the shins in a couple of scenes.

Watch the trailer. Title: It Happened at the World's Fair Mike and Danny fly a crop duster, but because of Danny's gambling debts, a local sheriff seizes it. Trying to earn money, they hitch-hike to the World's Fair in Seattle. While Danny tries to earn money playing poker, Mike takes care of a small girl, Sue-Lin, whose Uncle Walter has disappeared. Being a ladies' man, he also finds the time to court a young nurse, Diane. Written by Mattias Thuresson. Taking advantage of the Seattle World's Fair, frequent Presley director Norman Taurog does his best to spice up an otherwise routine programmer in which Elvis ends up the reluctant guardian of a cute little girl who has been separated from her folks. Chief among the delights that transcend the vanilla flavor of the picture is a scene between The King and scorching supernova Yvonne Craig in which the former croons the tune "Relax" while the latter deftly evades his prowling lips and paws.

The fair ran for six months in from April-September. I was 13 years old that summer when my family made the trip across the state from Spokane to Seattle to attend the fair. The Pacific Northwest provided a different kind of scenic backdrop from previous Presley films. The rural shots featured Mount Rainier, a peak in the Cascades south of Seattle. The peak is also visible in a couple of scenes later in the movie. Location shooting was done there, no doubt by design, in September.
Hoping to get a glimpse of Elvis in Seattle, a crowd of teenagers started gathering on the sidewalk in front of the New Washington Doric Hotel at on the evening of Tuesday, September 4, With tomorrow being the first day of school, the youngest in the crowd were the first to abandon the vigil. Elvis was indeed on his way, having left Los Angeles the previous morning in his recently purchased personal bus actually a Dodge House Car , followed by a black Chrysler station wagon. Accompanying him were nine members of his personal entourage. The expected arrival of the caravan with Elvis in Seattle was delayed, however, by an unscheduled stop. Early that Tuesday morning, Elvis pulled off the highway into the parking lot of the Columbia Inn Motel in the small community of Kalama, Washington, about miles south of Seattle. After sleeping through the day, Elvis and his crew continued the drive northward, finally arriving at the New Washington Hotel at about 1 a. Even at that hour, about teenagers were there to greet him. Open from April through October , the fair exceeded expectations, drawing about 10 million people to go up to the top of the Space Needle, ride the Monorail, and see the exhibits.
