Facts about

Hal B. Wallis:  walking down the street.
The soundtrack album for this movie is not only Elvis' most successful chart album, but it is also the number one album overall for 1961. "Blue Hawaii" spent 20 consecutive weeks at the #1 spot of the Billboard Top LP's chart in 1961-1962 (a record to be broken only in 1977 by Fleetwood Mac's "Rumors" album), and it stayed on the charts for 79 weeks.
Approximately seven minutes before "The End," Maile ('Joan Blackman') kicks Chad (Elvis) out of her room on Kauai, then peeks through the blinds. Briefly in her view is a couple paddling a canoe. The woman, blond and seated in front, is Pop singer Patti Page. How Patti paddled her way into being an extra came about because she was then married to Charles O'Curran, a choreographer and music stager for many films produced by Hal B. Wallis, including "Blue Hawaii."
