It Happened at the World’s Fair is a 1963 American musical film starring Elvis Presley as a crop-dusting pilot. It was filmed in Seattle, Washington, site of the Century 21 Exposition. The governor of Washington at the time, Albert Rosellini, suggested the setting to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer executives. The film made $2.25 million at the box office. It marked Kurt Russell’s film debut.

Elvis’ twelfth movie, “It Happened at the World’s Fair,” was released April 3, 1963, making this year its 60th anniversary. The musical comedy follows Mike (Elvis) and Danny (Gary Lockwood), crop duster pilots who travel to the World’s Fair in Seattle to pay off Danny’s gambling debts and to get their plane back from the local sheriff. Along the way, Danny plays poker to make some quick cash, and Mike woos a nurse, Diane (Joan O’Brien), and takes care of a little girl, Sue-Lin (Vicky Tiu), whose uncle has disappeared. “It Happened at the World’s Fair” was directed by Norman Taurog.

Actress Joan O’Brien co-starred with many of Hollywood’s top leading men, including Elvis, Cary Grant, Jerry Lewis and John Wayne.

Lyric

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤

Relax, kick your shoes off baby

Relax, here we are alone
Relax, if the phone rings, let it
Just forget it, we’re not at home
Let loose, let your hair down honey
Unwind, turn the lights down low
Relax, let’s uncork the stopper
Come to papa, come on let’s go
Defrost your charms
There’s only the two of us here
Come in my arms
And make yourself comfortable dear
Relax, let’s get cozy baby
Come on, let your concrete crack
Cut loose, when love knock’s invited
Don’t you fight it, come on relax
Defrost your charms
There’s only the two of us here
Come in my arms
And make yourself comfortable dear
Relax, let’s get cozy baby
Come on, huh, even concrete cracks
Cut loose, life is worth the livin’
When you’re givin’, come on relax
Relax
Mmm
Let loose
Mmm
Defrost
Mmm, mmm
