After starring in a string of classic films like Jailhouse Rock, King Creole, Viva Las Vegas and Clambake, the iconic Elvis Presley changed his acting habit and made this unconventional late-’60s romance his Hollywood swan song. The King takes on a rare dramatic role as the young and handsome Dr. John Carpenter, who is assigned three female medical social workers to assist him at his inner-city clinic—but he doesn’t know that they are really nuns! Mary Tyler Moore (Thoroughly Modern Millie, What’s So Bad About Feeling Good?) is Sister Michelle, one of the nuns who takes off her habit—and takes off with Elvis’ heart! When love blossoms between the sweet, singing and swinging doctor and the demure, devoted nun, Michelle must decide whether to follow her heart or stay true to her vows. In this touching story that addresses social issues still relevant today, Elvis woos his love as only he can with unforgettable musical numbers like “Rubberneckin’,” “Let Us Pray” and “Change of Habit.” The wonderful supporting cast includes Barbara McNair (Stiletto), Ed Asner (The Satan Bug), Ruth McDevitt (TV’s Kolchak: The Night Stalker) and Richard Carlson (The Maze).
