More Details

Synopsis:
A documentary about the life and times of "The King", Elvis Presley. The film uses a variety of techniques to capture Presley's personality and persona: there are rare clips, home movies, dramatizations, and even an Elvis impersonator. Highlights include Elvis' early performances, his stint in the army, his controversial hip-swivelin' appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show", his 1968 comeback concert, the illustrious film career, the marriage to high-haired Priscilla, and his transformation into a bloated pill-popper, which led to his death in 1977.

Notes:
Narrators: Ral Donner (Elvis Presley), Joe Esposito (Joe Esposito), Linda Thompson (Linda Thompson), Lisha Sweetnam (Priscilla Presley), Virginia Kiser (Gladys Presley), Michael Tomack (Vernon Presley). The theatrical running time of this film was 88 minutes, while the homevideo version runs 144 minutes.

Reviews:
"...Packed with enough fine music and unusual footage to satisfy anyone with an interest in the late singing idol..." - 04/08/1981 Variety


"...Mesmerizing, if not as a drama or documentary , then as an artifact....A gaudy, unforgettable story, and it's part of the story it tells." - 05/08/1981 New York Times, p.C8
