Plot Summary:
Elvis Presley is in fine form as singer Rusty Wells, who is hired by Big Frank to watch over his daughter, Val, while on her first girls-only holiday from college in Fort Lauderdale. Mayhem ensues when heart throb Romano tries his luck with Val, and Elvis has to interfere. Val starts out as a plain jane student and shocks Rusty when he realizes she is quite attractive. Val and her two friends want to have fun on their vacation and their plans keep Rusty and his band jumping to keep up with them. This film marks the only time Elvis had to dress as a girl.
