Hal Wallis : Going into the army certainly changed Elvis,he had become more mature because being in the army was unlike anything he'd known before . His sense of humour also developed along with his career as a soldier. The sideburns went , too, and he looked tougher, harder and leaner, and he just couldn't wait to get back to filming either. To begin with, Elvis was nervous that his two-year lay-off away from the cameras might mean he would have to start learning to act all over again, but in fact he slipped straight into it,though I guess it helped making a picture like 'G.I. Blues' which reflected his time in the army.
