Twilight Time

He sings, he fixes cars, and he takes punches better than De Niro’s Raging Bull. Elvis Presley excels in one of his few ’60s pictures that show an interest in being a ‘real movie,’ a remake of a boxing saga with entertaining characters and fine direction from noir ace Phil Karlson. Plus Charles Bronson, Lola Albright and Joan Blackman in standout roles. Old Warners contractee Wayne Morris didn’t live long enough to know his 1939 role would be taken by Elvis, in a remake. On Blu-ray from Twilight Time.
