Steve Grayson (Elvis Presley) is a cocky car racer and Kenny Donford (Bill Bixby) is his manager. One day, they find Susan Jacks (Nancy Sinatra) waiting in his trailer. Steve has tax issues and she turns out to be an IRS agent.
Sinatra is probably the worst actor in the movie. That makes the romance tough to watch. This is bad. They do include cameo of a lot of Nascar legendary drivers. The list of names in the beginning is amazing. There are some good racing footage. Otherwise, this is rather boring. The other issue is the year is 1968. Time is moving on and it looks like it’s moving on without Elvis. He hasn’t changed. His movies haven’t changed. This is strictly the same old Elvis movie.
Steve Grayson: I’d like to break you in half! Kenny Donford: If you did, you’d have two very short friends.
Speedway isn’t much of a film, I doubt anything Elvis Presley did was.
I had seen snippets of Elvis flicks before and they never looked watchable. I recorded it because it has Nancy Sinatra in it and I like some of her music. I have to say Elvis’s acting wasn’t that bad, though Nancy was a real let down. The problem is there isn’t a film here, Elvis is driving around and doing singalongs. The little kid was cute, the Kenny character brought something to the table, but not anywhere near enough.
