In the shower scene, all shown waist up naked, besides a sergeant showering along with enlisted men, when focusing on him after Elvis takes his soap, sergeant is shown putting his hands down towards his waist, in a sort of pulling up shorts gesture - despite, all being supposedly, presumably naked for proper showering ablutions.

Because of copyright problems, in the European version of the movie the song "Tonight Is So Right For Love" (by Sid Wayne and Abner Silver) which was based on the melody of "Bacarolle" by Jaques Offenbach, was substituted with "Tonight's All Right For Love" (by Wayne, Silver and Joe Lilley), which had similar lyrics but was based on the melody of "Tales From The Vienna Woods" by Johann Strauss.

GI Blues was Elvis' first post-army flick, and is a million miles away from the great King Creole film. That is not to say that this is a bad film but it's not great either.
Although not one of his best in my opinion and kind of slow moving, it's still an easy going musical romp that features some nice tunes, good acting and the beautiful Juliet Prowse.
The production settings are okay as well as the cast and music, including songs like GI Blues, Shopping Around and the delightful 'WOODEN HEART' as the world famous standout hit, But apart from that, not one of my favorites.
Conclusion - Although i'm a big Elvis fan, i never did like this movie much, but maybe you might, so it's still worth checking out if you like Elvis though.
