This movie is dumb. He gets in trouble with the IRS cause he isn't paying his bills and the only way he can get the money for it is to win 1st place in a big race. And he doesn't win at the end but they're all happy.

Some of the better Elvis movie songs. The little kids that they cast in Elvis movies are so adorable. The only thing I have against it is that the ending does not actually resolve things to my satisfaction.

Elvis Presley sings his way around the race circuit as successful speedway driver Steve Grayson. All is fine and dandy until the tax return submitted by a wise-cracking Bill Bixby (as Steve's manager) is scrutinised by the IRS. Will Elvis be able to raise the $145,000 to pay his tax bill? Will he succeed with his advances to IRS inspector Nancy Sinatra? Will the songs get any worse? Well, you didn't expect the likes of Hamlet did you?
