Released in 1962 by United Artists, this time around Elvis Presley joins forces with director Phil Karlson, for the unremarkable, yet serviceable, 'Kid Galahad'.
Shot on location in Idyllwild, California, Elvis plays Walter Gulick, who after completing his military service, takes a job as a sparring partner at a gym. The owner of which sees potential in Walter as a professional fighter and takes him under his wing.
Focusing on a more serious direction, as opposed to the campy tone Elvis had begun to establish in prior films. It is clear here that Elvis wanted to spread his acting wings, but unfortunately the films weak screenplay and severe lack of tension, just wouldn't let him.
