Love Me Tender


(out of 5)

Ridiculous melodrama that is merely an excuse for  (in his film debut) to belt out his many (totally anachronistic) hit songs. He and his family have survived the Civil War and are now trying to rebuild their lives, but a rivalry between him and his brother over  threatens to tear it all apart again.  is adorably quaint as the boys’ kindly mother, who sits with doe-eyed appreciation every time her youngest son sings (and swings his hips ever so rudely…who sang like this in the 1860s? Even his hair is wrong for the period). For diehard fans only.
