So Albert and his girlfriend (Janet Leigh) organize a nationwide contest in which one lucky girl wins a farewell kiss from Conrad on the Ed Sullivan Show. Kim McAfee (Ann-Margret) turns outto be the lucky teenager and Conrad's whole entourage moves into her quiet, Midwestern home much tothe chagrin of her ever irritable father (Paul Lynde) and her jealous boyfriend (Bobby Rydell). Theresult is chaos and a series of hilarious romantic complications.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Credit George Sidney with directing one of the better fun and frolic tune packages.
Fresh: George Sidney's tacky 1963 musical fantasy-satire about the Elvis craze, based on the Broadway show of the same title, isn't exactly good, but if you like what he does with Ann-Margret, Janet Leigh, and pink decor, it's sort of magnificent.
Fresh: Underrated satirical musical that has contributed more to popular culture than many people are aware of.
Fresh: For all its annoyances -- and there are many -- the film somehow sears its way into the mind's eye.
