I have this movie on DVD and I wanted the BD too,excellent viewing! First, we shouldn't forget that Las Vegas is a character in itself: it wraps the whole story; we can catch a few glimpses of what it was like back in the ear!y 60s, its green empty spaces, its casinos,its buildings..But let' s get more into the movie: we don't watch it for the plot, we watch it for THEM: Elvis and Ann-Margret. One can easily see beyond their movie roles and perceive them as human beings p!aying themselves. Uniquely talented they are, singing, dancing and staring at each other! Let' marvel, when they are dancing at the tune of "Cheek-to-cheeck"! After watching the movie I feel I am 30 years younger, and when I know I'm having a hard day at work, I watch it the evening before so that I get recharged for the day ahead. Ann-Margret and Elvis! Yours is pure talent! And thanks a lot for all the JOY that you continue to give us!!!!

Aesthetically I can appreciate just how beautiful Elvis and Ann were together and how much on-screen ...

With the digital download my absolute only complaint is that the audio turns barely "audible" during a few points in the movie. At first I thought it was my television but I rewound and rewatched where the audio went very low and it happened again.

What a movie! I'm in the process of watching every Elvis movie that I can (I'm behind, I know) and I just watched Viva Las Vegas for my very first time this week. Aesthetically I can appreciate just how beautiful Elvis and Ann were together and how much on-screen chemistry they exhibited, which lacked, in my opinion, in some of Elvis' other films with female actors. It's your typical 'Elvis meets girl, they fall out, Elvis wins her back' type of movie but I can still appreciate it for what it is. The music and Vegas scenery is phenomenal and a taste of Elvis and Ann dancing is never wrong. Very good movie!

Ann-Margret Steals the Show
Verified purchase
Everything about this movie is cheaply done on every level - the writing, the directing, the music, the sets, the acting, the cinematography. It seems to me that Hollywood didn't know what to do with Elvis. Have him sing six songs and then start counting the money. It is a sad affair to treat a Music Icon so poorly. It would have been thrilling to see Ann-Margret and Elvis in a great musical movie. They deserved better than this. They had real screen chemistry. In my book, though, Ann-Margret steals the show with her radiance and star presence. Hooray for Ann!!!

Elvis and Ann-Margret light up Las Vegas, 1964-style
Verified purchase
It's that go-go guy and that bye-bye gal ... So went the ad and poster copy back in the day for Presley's biggest movie hit of the Sixties. Elvis and Ann-Margret make the perfect screen couple in this brief (under 90 minutes) and breezy romp, helmed by the great George Sidney (who had just directed A-M to movie stardom in Bye-Bye, Birdie). Solid character actor Cesare Danova brings along his subtle Latin lover vibe; William Demarest (Uncle Charlie of TV's My Three Sons) delivers his usual quota of cranky laughs; and Nicky Blair makes a fine comic foil/sidekick for EP. The soundtrack is one of Elvis' best of the era, a nice blend of original ballads (Today, Tomorrow and Forever; I Need Somebody to Lean On), made-to-order movie rockers (If You Think I Don't Need You; C'mon, Everybody), and the massively successful double-a-side lead single (Viva Las Vegas c/w What'd I Say?). Which begs the question, why was there no original soundtrack album released back in '64 in conjunction with the film to capitalize on its big box-office success? Who dropped the ball at RCA back in the day?

The One That Got Away
Verified purchase
Classic Elvis but unlike many of his other movies, you can see the chemistry between Elvis and Ann Margret. Apparently, they had a long affair and friendship and one might assume they may have married had he not already proposed to Priscilla. Nice story line and as in most Elvis movies, great music. The duets with Ann Margret were good as were her singles.

Classic Elvis. Vegas. Underdog and singing.
Verified purchase
Seeing Las Vegas and Clark County, Nevada of 1964 is nostalgic. McCarran International Airport with the exit onto Las Vegas Blvd., Valley of Fire, Mt. Charleston, Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam, the old casinos. Clark County's population was about 200,000 now it's 2,200,000.

Classic Movie Fun with the King
Verified purchase
I got this DVD as a gift for my dad, and we enjoyed watching it together. Elvis Presley stars as a professional racecar driver who comes to Las Vegas to compete in a race. He meets Ann-Margret (starring as a swim instructor) and soon the two fall for each other, although they face some disagreements and personal differences along the way. The race itself occurs near the end of the movie, and has some cool racing scenes and vintage exotic cars. Very fun movie, it has something to offer for everyone - singing, romance, action - and of course, Elvis!
