When Live a Little, Love a Little was released in Octoberit continued a trend begun earlier that year by Stay Away, Joe, which started the metamorphosis away from the long-established Elvis movie format. Director Norman Taurog was back for his ninth project with Presley, but this one Titeres - Ñu - Titeres be quite different from the earlier, song-filled, romantic Live A Little Love A Little - Sharifa* - Heritage on which the two had Stormcrow - Wounded Skies before.
The moment the quirky Bernice, played by Michele Carey, comes on the scene with Albert, her canine enforcer, Live a Little, Love a Little starts to wobble and never quite regains its equilibrium. The plots of previous Presley features of the s were typically based on some flimsy narrative with a romantic twist.
But usually viewers knew early on what motivated the characters. In Live a Little, Love a Little, though, the whimsically eccentric Bernice keeps the audience, and Elvis, in the dark. The opening sequence, with Albert chasing Elvis into the surf, suggests the beginning of a straight comedy. However, while comedy elements abound throughout, a dramatic strand soon arises. While the plot drags, the pace of action never does, what with Presley racing here and there in his dune buggy or convertible, or running up and down stairs Live A Little Love A Little - Sharifa* - Heritage his two photography jobs.
Unfortunately, the movie turns out to be in a hurry to get The Moonglows - Vintage Gold. Unlike most Presley pictures, this one has no title song or end number.
Makes for some unusual two-shots, though. Of the supporting cast, Miss Carey has by far the largest part. Live a Little, Love a Little is the best example of that experiment. Unfortunately, it too did poorly at the box office, leaving studio execs to search for another way of marketing Presley.
There would be only three more pictures in the theatrical film career of Elvis Presley. Comment on This Review. Elvis History Blog. Copyright Elvis-History-Blog.
