Although this film was set in Miami, Florida, Elvis Presley's scenes were all shot in and around Los Angeles, California. All the Florida exteriors were shot in wide angles, using doubles and look-alike impersonators for Presley. See more »

This movie represents the end of Presley´s cinematic career,because the other "movies" after this one was just a waste of time for him,and he knew it. When you see Clambake,you can smell the 60´s decade,the inocence and childish happiness before the Vietnam War,the death of Kennedy and Martin Luther King. The title song shows what you can expect of it,it´s a fun film,with no intentions to be taken serious by anyone.It´s a party,with lot´s of girls,color and Elvis Presley.The songs are not so bad,"You don´t know me"is a great ballad,"A house that has everything"it´s a little pearl,just like "The girl i never loved". About the plot....well,it´s a quest for find true love,and that great question:"Does she love me,or my money?"... It´s always great to see Elvis,even in his movie decade,because there´s no artist´s like him nowadays,unfortunatelly....I almost forgot to say that this movie is better than:"Gigli"
