One of Elvis Presley’s most popular vehicles, Girl Happy! is also one of the most typical. Elvis plays Rusty Wells who is hired by Chicago gangster boss Big Frank (#HaroldJStone) to protect the virtue of his daughter Valerie (#ShelleyFabares), Rusty and his buddies follow Valerie to Fort Lauderdale during Spring Break. Valerie falls in (and out) of love with Rusty but when Valerie gets involved with an Italian playboy (#FabrizioMioni), Rusty is forced to break up the romance lest he end up in a cement overcoat.

There will be hors d’oeuvres and drink specials. Movie screen floats in the pool. Live music & surprises. The film starring Elvis and Shelley Fabares was shot in Ft.
