    Synopsis


    Elvis
    The first volley in the never-ending "Presley movie" blitzkrieg, the made-for-TV Elvis: The Movie stars Kurt Russell as the King, Season Hubley as Priscilla, Pat Hingle as Col. Parker, Shelley Winters as Elvis' mom, and Bing Russell (Kurt's real-life father) as Elvis' dad. The film recounts Presley's life from age ten to his 1969 Vegas comeback. Presley imitator Ronnie McDowell expertly dubs in Kurt Russell's renditions of "Love Me Tender," "Heartbreak Hotel," et al. When first telecast on February 11, 1979, the ratings for Elvis: The Movie went through the roof, even beating out a competing telecast of Gone With the Wind. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      OK...I first saw this back in 79 when it first aired and after watching it again I'm still amazed at Kurt's performance which is top notch. The overall production is great and even though this is not full look at the king of rock and roll it's still very good if not great. The disc looks good in the widescreen ratio which I hear it was shot close to this ratio for overseas markets. Sound is good. If you like Elvis you will like this movie. A bonus on the disc that's not marked on the box is that there is a commentary by an Elvis family member and a singer (forget his name) and its interesting to listen to. Would have loved a Carpenter and Russell commentary since theirs are always fun to listen to but this is a nice addition to the disc anyway. Don't miss a great biopic.

      This is not what I Expected. I'm a huge fan of John Carpenter, and I knew he worked with Kurt Russel on several films, but I had no idea they worked on an Elvis biopic. I really like this film, and it's very interesting, however keep in mind it's a TV Movie, but is still alot of fun.

      This is by far the best movie tribute to Elvis, and offers a realistic perspective that is rarely seen. It is a must-have for any serious collection of quality films.

      This was such a different role for Kurt Russell, and he did a fine job. I saw this movie when it first came out it still holds up!

      I remember this movie when it aired. So much different watching it later. Kurt Russell embodies Elvis. One of his best roles. The storyline still holds up. A must see!
