Spoiler warning

Chad Gates (Elvis Presley) has just gotten out of the Army, and is happy to be back in Hawaii with his surfboard, his beach buddies, and his girlfriend. His father wants him to go to work at the Great Southern Hawaiian Fruit Company, but Chad is reluctant. So Chad goes to work as a tour guide at the agency of his girlfriend Maile Duval (Joan Blackman).

His first assignment is a group of 4 teenage girls and their teacher, Abigail Prentice (Nancy Walters). One of the teenage girls, Ellie Corbett (Jenny Maxwell), is a very spoiled and difficult young woman. When Ellie plays up to a drunken tourist, there is a fight between him and Chad. Arrested and jailed, Chad is bailed out by his father, and looses his job as a tour guide.

Chad's parents think that Maile has a bad influence on him, and Chad leaves the house. Abigail hires Chad to take the group to Kauai anyway. At night, Ellie forces herself into Chad's room, as suddenly the phone rings. It's Maile with their friend Jack (John Archer). He says he'll meet them in the lobby, but as he’s leaving, the other girls show up looking for her. As the girls enter Chad's room, there's another knock on the door. This time it's Abigail. Chad hides the other girls and lets her in. She tells him that she has fallen in love. Ellie overhears, assuming she's talking about Chad, and runs crying into the night. Maile, tired of waiting in the lobby, comes upstairs, sees them together and runs off in tears. Just then, the girls rush in, saying that Ellie has taken a jeep and driven off.

The spanking scene[edit]

Chad follows Ellie and sees her in the water (fully clothed and not in too deep). Equally fully clothed, he at once follows her into the water and carries her (crying, wet and squirming, but no match for his strong arms) back to the beach. Ellie tells Chad that nobody cares for her or loves her. Chad tells her that nobody hates her and what she needs is a good old fashioned spanking. Ellie replies that nobody has ever cared for her enough even for that. At this, Chad pulls her over his knee and spanks her. 14 brisk spanks are shown before the scene fades into the next scene, in which the camera zooms out from two big and soft cushions, on which Ellie is sitting at the table with the group in a light-hearted mood. This is the next day, and as she still needs to sit on cushions, it can be assumed that she received much more than 14 smacks on her bottom. Ellie is noticably well-behaved now, in complete contrast to her earlier behaviour. In fact, she has been completely "cured". She sneezes (apparently having caught a cold from the water), and everyone laughs. Someone asks her if she “has a cold in the head”. Sweetly, she smiles and answers “No, just the opposite”, thus informing everyone there that she has been spanked.

Blue Hawaii is the movie Jenny Maxwell is probably best remembered for. She was 19 and Elvis was 25 when the movie was made. Jenny Maxwell was killed in a robbery outside their Beverly Hills condo in 1981, at only 39 years of age: even younger than Elvis Presley who had died in 1977 aged 42.
