User Reviews: Stay Away, Joe! is an American Treasure, that should not be overlooked if you truly love Elvis Presley movies. You have to understand the era in which this movie was made, #1…it was during the big outdoor Drive in Movie craze when carloads, truckloads of teenagers flocked by the millions to cheap grind house movies, #2…it reflects the attitudes of many young people during the so-called "swinging sixty’s free love etc. It accurately represents the living conditions of most First-Nations people at that time in American history…to this day reservations are plagued with poverty, broken down cars, and stray dogs…Elvis was not ashamed to portray a halfbreed native American, no matter how much this may have offended the straight, upper class, white America! If you want honest camp, wild and crazy young people, great Elvis songs you must see this movie with a open mind, remember, you, watching this movie in the comfort of your home on a Sunday afternoon was not the intended audience!
