It Happened at the World's Fair

Fun, music and Elvis all happen in this romp boasting one of the best backdrops of any Elvis Presley movie: the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, with its showpiece Space Needle, monorail and more. The King plays pilot-for-hire Mike, whose hope of starting his own flying business is grounded by the gambling of his co-pilot Danny (Gary Lockwood). The guys hitch to Seattle, where Mike finds romance, Danny finds easy marks and both find problems prior to a Happy Ending. Kurt Russell, in his screen debut, plays the child who wallops Mike in the shins. And among the 10 songs are "I'm Falling in Love Tonight", "Relax" and the gold record "One Broken Heart for Sale".
