Easy Come, Easy Go is a 1967 American musical film comedy starring Elvis Presley. Hal Wallis produced the film for Paramount Pictures, and it was his final movie for Elvis Presley. The film co-starred Dodie Marshall, Pat Harrington, Jr., Pat Priest, Elsa Lanchester and Frank McHugh. (It was McHugh's last feature film.) The movie reached #50 on the Variety magazine national box office list in 1967.
Easy Come, Easy Go, Presley's twenty-third film, was released on March 22, a mere thirteen days before his twenty-fourth, Double Trouble.
Ensign Ted Jackson (Elvis Presley) is a former U.S. Navy frogman who divides his time between twin careers as a deep sea diver and nightclub singer. Ted discovers what he believes could be a fortune in Spanish gold aboard a sunken ship and sets out to rescue it with the help of go-go dancing yoga expert Jo Symington (Dodie Marshall) and friend Judd Whitman (Pat Harrington, Jr.). Gil Carey (Skip Ward), however, is also after the treasure and uses his girlfriend Dina Bishop (Pat Priest) to foil Ted's plans.
Elvis sings six songs in the movie: the title song, "I'll Take Love", "Sing You Children", "You Gotta Stop", "Yoga Is as Yoga Does" in a duet with Elsa Lanchester, and "The Love Machine".
Paramount originally intended to make a movie called Easy Come Easy Go starring Jan and Dean with director Barry Shear but it was cancelled when the stars and several crew were injured in a train crash.
