Girl Happy is a 1965 American musical romantic comedy in the beach party film and spring break style, starring Elvis Presley. This was the last mega-successful Elvis Presley film at the box office, finishing at #25 on the Variety year-end top-grossing films of 1965 chart and making $3 million, although all of his subsequent films would still be profitable. The movie won a fourth place prize Laurel Award in the category Top Musical of 1965. The movie featured the Top 40 Billboard hit "Puppet on a String", which reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on the Adult Contemporary chart and in Canada, and was certified Gold by the RIAA Rusty Wells and his band are just about ready to leave Chicago for their annual spring break trip to Fort Lauderdale. That is, until Big Frank extends their stay at his club. Big Frank's daughter decides to go to Lauderdale with her friends for spring break, so he gets Rusty and his band to look after her and to make sure she stays out of trouble. While he attempts that, Rusty has to contend with a good-time girl, Deena, who has no patience for guys who stand her up or keep her waiting.Although MGM presented Girl Happy as a beach party film ("Elvis brings his beat to the beach!" "Elvis jumps with the campus crowd to make the beach 'ball' bounce!") and while Presley had previously appeared shirtless in films prior to this, he never appears without a shirt at anytime throughout his many scenes at the pool and on the beach, even wearing long sleeves for most of the film.
Alternate titles considered were The Only Way to Love and Girl Crazy. Joe Pasternak had produced the similar spring break movie Where the Boys Are, which was also set in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in 1960.
Shelley Fabares, Mary Ann Mobley, and Chris Noel had each appeared in a beach party film movie prior to this: Fabares in Ride the Wild Surf and Mobley and Noel both in Get Yourself a College Girl. Shelley Fabares and Nina Talbot sing the song "Read All About It". This would the first of three movies in which she would co-star with Elvis Presley. Dan Haggerty, who plays Charlie, would later appear in the The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams movie and TV series.
