Elvis' great dramatic performance, part 2

First released in 1961, "Wild In The Country" features Elvis Presley as Glenn Tyler, a roughneck country boy, seething with hostility but gifted with literary talent. In the occasionally precious Clifford Odets script, this comes across as James Dean by way of a Thomas Wolfe novel, and not a bad shot at respectable acting by Elvis. His monologue about his dead mother, delivered to sympathetic shrink Irene Sperry (Hope Lange), is one of the most affecting things the King ever did in a movie. The songs are kept to a minimum, and Presley has some good, thrumming energy with the young Tuesday Weld (bad girl) and Millie Perkins (good girl), two uncommonly smart actresses. The movie starts off with Glenn getting into a fight with, and badly injuring, his drunken brother. A court releases him on probation into the care of his uncle in a small town, appointing Irene Sperry to give him psychological counselling. Marked as a trouble-maker, he is falsely suspected of various misdemeanours including an affair with Irene. Eventually shown to be innocent, he leaves to go to college and become a writer. This film once again showed exactly that Elvis could more than hold his own in a great dramatic part, alongside a superb supporting cast, including 3 lovely ladies. This was the third Elvis film from 20th Century Fox; the DVD shows the movie in its original widescreen Cinemascope presentation. Elvis preceeded this with "Flaming Star". Brilliant, dramatic acting from Elvis!

This is one of many Hollywood melodramas suggesting the angst brewing beneath the prosperity of the Eisenhower-Kennedy era, and it holds up decently.

"Family Entertaining"

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is another Elvis movie that should get a serious second look at. He does very well with his acting. I rate this as good as "King Creole". There's not many songs in the movie but it's great to watch Elvis do what he did best. Act. I really love the title song "Wild In The Country". This was a single release with "I Feel So Bad". The whole family can watch this movie. Go out and buy it. Enjoy it.

Sexiest Elvis Movie

My Favorite! Elvis plays a roughneck country boy, seething with hostility but gifted with literary talent. In the occasionally precious Clifford Odets script, this comes across as James Dean by way of a Thomas Wolfe novel--and not a bad shot at respectable acting by Elvis. His monologue about his dead mother, delivered to sympathetic shrink Hope Lange, is one of the most affecting things the King ever did in a movie. The songs are kept to a minimum, and Presley has some good, thrumming energy with the young Tuesday Weld (bad girl) and Millie Perkins (good girl), two uncommonly smart actresses. This is one of many Hollywood melodramas suggesting the angst brewing beneath the prosperity of the Eisenhower-Kennedy era, and it holds up decently, if not spectacularly. For Elvis fans, it's a poignant glimpse at a performer still in the young-buck stage of exciting possibilities. --Robert Horton
Possibly the sexiest of all of The King's movies, this film finds Elvis playing a backwoods delinquent blessed with great literary talents with Millie Perkins as his childhood sweetheart. Co-starring Tuesday Weld.

The title fits the movie-wild is right

I loved this movie. Elvis became the person he was portraying. Very believable, beacuse their are people in this world today who do not proceed to their full potential in life. It just makes you take stock of yourself and ask "what happened to the things I wanted to do with my life".
I bought this movie to show people and family to apply themselves to their dreams and hopes. This is a very moving story.
