    This movie is truly wretched, but Elvis' acting was up to the challenge - it is equally wretched. Aside from portraying negative stereotypes of Native Americans, Elvis adds a new one, the lecherous Indian. Elvis made so very many bad movies with terrible songs and his poor acting, we can draw only two conclusions. Either Elvis knew all this was shoddy and did it for the continuing fame and money. Or, Elvis had absolutely no artistic taste and thought he was making films akin to Frank Sinatra in On The Town.

  • Best Elvis movie of all time

    strongest supporting cast led by Burgis Merideth the lovely and funny Quentin Dean,, The Great Joan Blondell and Elvis had his best friends in the cast led by Charlie Hodge which sets a good comic mood for the whole movie...during the Movie Joan Blondell tries to kill Elvis Numerous times allways to comic effect>>Elvis throws a big beer bash that nearly lasts the length of the movie Not as good as Dan Cushmans Book but that's a masterpiece

    Its ironic, Recently, comparisons have been made between Al Jolson and Elvis. As people and entertainers. Hollywood didn't take either seriously, as an actor, but didn't want to give up on them, as long as the public payed to see and hear them sing. It was all about the almighty buck. Stay Away Joe is right up there with Wonderbar as two of the most offensive movies ever made. Im a fan of both of these great talents . Elvis had said, Al Jolson was his mentor, and many of his dance girating moves, as in Jailhouse Rock were based on watching Al in films like the night club scenes in the Jazz Singer. Never the less, two great talents that will stand the test of time.

    As Elvis movies go, this is close to the bottom of the barrel. you just can't get any worst than this, well I did think of one other movie that was worse than this. Elvis stars in this silly comedy, the who show seems to star the co-stars,songs are not much better, one song has the king singing to a cow?!!!! While parts are okay, others seem to be boring.

  • Stay Away Everyone!

    If anyone ever wonders why Elvis Presley could never have made it as a dramatic actor, they need only to see this mess of a movie "Stay Away Joe", in which he plays (of all things) a Native American cowboy. Two of his other films, "Wild In The Country" and "Flaming Star" focused mainly on Elvis's dramatic talents and had little or no music, and they flopped big time at the box office. It's the same deal with SAJ, which deals with Elvis' character Joe Lightcloud trying to raise cattle, romancing a white girl and dealing with his crazy family and friends. It's also full of stereotypes in regard to Native Americans. I would rate SAJ as one of his three worst films ("Tickle Me" and "Charro" being the other two). Audiences wanted to see Elvis singing, dancing and swinging with pretty girls in exotic locations. That's why his musical films were way more successful than his so-called comedic-dramatic ones. I'm a true Elvis fan, and have heard all his songs and seen all his films. Trust me everyone, stay away from "Stay Away Joe"!
