In the opening scene when Elvis and another soldier are loading ammunition into the tank, the shells being loaded are much to large for the main tank gun, which was 90mm on the M48 tank. See more »
Where are we going tonight, honey?
I'd prefer'd if you didn't call me honey.
You didn't mind it inside.
Now we're outside.
But I got the idea you and me kinda hit it off.
Ah. You and Herr Klugmann have much in common.
Er, now, wait a minute, honey.
Look, if you and I are going places tonight...
We are not going any place. You helped me get rid of Herr Klugmann. Thank you. Now I'm going home.

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.

I loved this film. It's not typical Elvis in the sense that for once he doesn't play the irreverent gigolo with a woman waiting for him in every bar; his one big dream is to do music in his own nightclub. He's quite likable and ends up even being noble when he turns the plot (of a soldier engulfed in an bet with his army buddies to 'defrost' a gorgeous nightclub dancer) on its side when he falls in love with the stunning Juliet Prowse. This one is similar in tone to VIVA LAS VEGAS because female lead Prowse is an independent woman, and not a typical Elvis groupie. That's why I like it all the more. She is never, in my opinion, actually 'refrigerated;' even when she turns down a pass from Elvis she's not so much rude as she is firm in her convictions. But what a dancer- with a pair of gams that stretch into next week!! Her introduction in the film (which shows a spinning cardboard cutout in a marquee window turn into the actual Prowse- in a strapless white, shredded dress) is breathtaking!!
