Senate Theater says
In vivid technicolor and with no pretensions of art, "Viva Las Vegas," is about as pleasant and unimportant as a banana split. And as fetching to look at, it might be added. The Presley movie recipe boils down to a series of musical romps that are extremely easy to take.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer happily teams Elvis with Ann-Margaret, a perfect musical foil with her galvanized dancing. The story sets up a breezy romantic triangle involving Mr. Presley, as a speed-racing bellhop, Ann-Margaret, as a pool manager, and Cesare Danova, as an Italian racing champion. With the trio trailed by William Damarest and Nicky Blair, the picture as directed by George Sidney, tools along rosily.

The tunes are nice, especially one poolside duet by the hero and heroine, and Ann-Margaret rattles the rafters in several rhythm numbers. The shapely red-head would do well, though, to tone down her cutie-pie grimacing.

All this, from the pen of no less a writer than Sally Benson, unfolds against the stunningly picturesque background of the famed desert resort, photographed in excellent color. Miss Benson's script snugly combs the entire area, from the neon-spangled clubs, casinos and hotels to Boulder Dam Lake. And the picture winds up with a wing-ding of an auto race across the countryside. Whatever it isn't, "Viva Las Vegas" remains friendly, wholesome and pretty as all get-out.
