Jailhouse Rock

Jailhouse Rock

Directed by Richard Thorpe. Starring Elvis Presley, Judy Taylor. (1957, NR, 96 min.)

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Tue., Aug. 20, 2002

Elvis' third movie is surely his best. He plays a guy vaguely like himself, who hits it big after learning to play music while in prison. Not only does this film have some of the best tunes in an Elvis movie, the choreography is great too.
