Follow That Dream (1962)

When the Kwimper family car runs out of gas on a new Florida highway and an officous state supervisor tries to run them off, Pop Kwimper digs in his heels and decides to do a little homesteading. He and his son Toby and their “adopted” children – Holly, Ariadne and the twins – start their own little community along a strip of the roadside. The fishing is good and the living is easy until the mob sets up a gambling operation and the state supervisor sics a sexy social worker on the Kwimpers in an effort to take away Ariadne and the twins.

This movie is in my top ten of all time. It is a pure romp! Even though you have the “bad guys” from the government to add some drama, and the fact that Elvis character “Toby” and his family are all government freeloaders, this is essentially just a feel good movie.

You can read the plot from the other reviews, but it is essentially about homesteaders coming to Florida with a composite “family” and trying to make their way.

This is Elvis at his best–as he was meant to be in movies–singing and romancing his way through, with a back woods innocence that Max Baer would later use as Jethro Bodine on “The Beverly Hillbillies”.

Enjoy this film. It is a delight!
