You have to wonder why Elvis Presley stars in this hoo-hum movie. Johnny Tyronne (Elvis Presley) is a American actor who gets kidnapped.
When the movie begins, we see Johnny watching a movie (with him in it.) While his missing, he meets a princess (Mary Ann Mobley). Andybody who likes this movie, he/she needs to get thier eyes checked.
Johnny is hired to kill the king (Philip Reed). Which he ends up behind bars, singing So Close But Yet So Far. Is this how Colonel Tom Parker wanted people to remember Elvis Presley like this after he is dead.
I guess so. Why would anybody want to see a movie with an American actor-singer star gets kiddnapped?
Elvis should have said "NO" when he was asked to be in this movie.
Songs include, Golden Coins, Harem Holiday, Shake That Tamborine, and So Close But Yet So Far.
Elvis plays an American film star (ironic, indeed) that gets kidnapped by Arabians. Of course he falls in love with one of the ladies, but a conflict occurs when he is ordered to kill her father. Huh?
Anyway, both the plot and the accompanying songs are weak. The only song that comes close to being good is "So Close, Yet So Far". The others range from the average Elvis movie song ("Mirage", "Hey, Little Girl") to the ridiculous ("Shake That Tambourine").
This is a picture that should have never seen the light of day, and is not good for those who already have a negative image of Elvis Presley. For die-hards only!
