Ratings & Reviews

  1. Diderot's rating of the film King Creole

    A somewhat sloppily pieced together film, though Presley's performance isn't terrible. But the really remarkable part of the film is Carolyn Jones. Next to her, Presley's a nobody here.

  2. El Biffo's rating of the film King Creole

    Elvis' best film, by far. With an amazing, sexy and desperate portrayal by Carolyn Jones as Walter Matthau's personal whore. Includes the song "I'm Evil".

  3. M Klein's rating of the film King Creole

    Elvis is tremendous at flirting with girls, putting on his jacket, and kissing.

  4. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film King Creole

    KING CREOLE, along with his iconic turn in JAILHOUSE ROCK, are great indicators of the screen talent Elvis Presley could've been, had Hal B. Wallis and Col. Tom Parker not been content to treat Presley as a mere ATM machine. The talents of Michael Curtiz behind the camera and real actors like Vic Morrow and Walter Matthau bring out the best in the King, it's just a shame his film career piqued out early creatively.
