In Fun In Acapulco Elvis Presley plays Mike Windgren, who is running away from a family trapeze act accident. He is hired as a lifeguard and singer. Elsa Cardenas, a lady bullfighter, wants Mike's attention. The beautiful Ursula Andress plays hard to get. Mike gets over his fear of heights by diving off one of the local landmark cliffs. The eleven song soundtrack of Latin-beat ditties includes "You Can't Say No In Acapulco" and the million-plus selling "Bossa Nova Baby".
If you liked the movie, or like Elvis’ Latino songs, I would strongly recommend Fun In Acapulco as a great introduction to this FTD Soundtrack series. Then, if you like the new packaging and fabulous sound, save up your money and buy your next favorite!
