SESSION: Sunday 12th June at 7pm



King Creole

(1958, dir. Michael Curtiz, w/ Elvis Presley, Carolyn Jones, Walter Matthau, Dolores Hart)

Having flunked graduation for a second time and needing cash to support his crabby (and thus unemployed) father, Danny Fisher takes a job as a singer in the King Creole nightclub - about the only joint around not run by smarmy crook Maxie Fields who wants him for his own place. He gets on pretty well with Fields' floozy though, and all this plus his involvement with Fields' hoods and with innocent five-and-dime store assistant Nellie means Danny finds his world closing in on him all ways round.
