VIVA LAS VEGAS (1964) , Princess requested... This week's SPOTLIGHT. And so far winning the favorite Ann Margret movie poll.
Viva las Vegas!! What a fun film for Elvis fans. This is one of my favorite Ann Margret films. She's awesome in the musical numbers. Talk about chemistry between two stars.. In my opinion the film is about the songs and dance numbers. Which include the title song, "Come On, Everybody", "What'd I Say", and "Appreciation"...but all of them are good, and the other songs are: "The Lady Loves Me", "I Need Someone to Lean On", "Today, Tomorrow, and Forever", "My Rival", and "If You Think I Don't Need You". If you look closely in one of the dance numbers you will see Ann Margret wearing ballet slippers instead of high heels. The car race footage in the finale is amazing.
Though the relationship did not last. Elvis and Ann Margret remained friends for the rest of his life. According to Ann Margret, Elvis sent her flowers in the shape of a guitar on the opening night of every one of her Las Vegas shows.
