If you pay attention, you'll see that the King, beyond the curled lip and swiveling hips, was one canny negotiator. An hour in, the sullen ex-con has showbiz by the short and curlies, and cufflinks the size of convertibles. See him turn pardner Hunk Houghton (Mickey Shaughnessy) into a dog-walking flunkie, and you'll realize that all Alexis Herman needs to soften the two sides up is a few choruses of "Young and Beautiful" and a good punch in the throat.
But if you're happy with the Post Office, live in the now with Hollywood's finest impersonations: Kurt Russell's Elvis, David Keith in Heartbreak Hotel, and of course Val Kilmer's turns in True Romance and Top Secret. Coming soon: Teamster prez Ron Carey in Return to Sender.
