Jailhouse Rock: In this 1957 box office hit that's Elvis Presley's best film according to Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide, the King plays Vince Everett, jailed for manslaughter after a bar fight. There, Vince learns to belt out tunes while in the house and after being paroled, follows a bumpy road to music and movie success. Six Presley songs by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stroller spike the story, including Treat Me Nice, I Wanna Be Free and the classic shimmy shakin title tune that was Presley's favourite of all his films production numbers. Spinout: It's Elvis with his foot on the gas and no brakes on the fun! Three beauties vie for a band leader's attentions, including the daughter of a race car owner who wants the young man to drive his car in an upcoming rally.
