Discerning precisely where Elvis Presley's soundtracks begin to descend into the abyss of camp is difficult, but it's hard not to view 1965's Harum Scarum as where he started heading toward rock bottom. The film's plot is the standard piffle - Elvis plays a movie star who gets caught up in some Mideastern romantic intrigue and sings his way through it - but the movie's theme allows the usual team of songwriters to write songs about the exotic desert, kismet, mirages, and harems.
