I loved this movie so much. If anyone knows where I could find the song lyrics, it would be greatly appreciated. The songs and acting were phenominal.

For all of you Elvis trivia buffs, you might be interested to know that the outdoor scenes in "Kid Galahad" were filmed in Idyllwild, a small mountain community in southern California. The indoor scenes of the inn where Elvis' character, Walter, stayed is known as "Hidden Lodge" to the local townsfolk. It has been sold and remodeled several times since the movie was released, and is now a private residence. The "chapel" building where Walter (Elvis) and Dolly (Lola Albright) met with the priest to be married was actually the local post office for a number of years. While "Kid Galahad" depicted Elvis in the customary light-hearted role, he was most noted for the film allowed him the opportunity to explore a more serious and dramatic side he so longed to portray.

I loved the movie. The boxing scene was more realistic than other boxing movies and that includes the "rocky" movies, and the fact that elvis was trained by a former champion gives the action in the movie even more credibility. on a scale of 1 to 10 I give "kid galahad" a 100.
