Shira's Mini-Review

To Purchase from Amazon U.S. Canada U.K.
Year Released 1965
Dancer Brenda Benet, Gail Gilmore, and Wilda Taylor, as the adult dancers, and Vicki Malkin as the child dancer.
Shira's Feedback The trio of adult dancers perform in a fake "Gypsy" style that's not remotely Middle Eastern, with high kicks, tambourines, and spins, although in one dance sequence they do use finger cymbals. Despite this, they are entertaining to watch. Vicki Malkin's performance to "Hey Little Girl" is much more Middle Eastern in nature, though there is something slightly disturbing about Elvis cozying up to a young girl in this way..
