BLUE HAWAII was one of Elvis Presley‘s most commercially successful movies and included many songs that gained popular appeal, including “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, “Blue Hawaii,” and “The Hawaiian Wedding Song.” The soundtrack album was number one on the record charts for 20 weeks and included 14 songs, more songs than any other Elvis movie. Presley was 26 years old when this film was released, and Angela Lansbury, who played his mother, was not quite 36 years old.
