2. It Happened at the World's Fair
If you wanted to get a lot of attention in the early 1960s, all you had to do was bring Elvis to town. This 1962 vehicle cast him as a debt-ridden cropduster who needed to raise $1,200 to get his plane back. Hitchhiking brings him to the World's Fair at swinging Seattle Center, and the infectious spirit of progress and discovery that swept the city at that time is an absolute joy to watch.
