Review : 'Elvis: King of Entertainment' DVD
A truly worthwhile account for all you Elvis fans out there this DVD presents an overview of the highlights of Elvis Presley's life, his career, his performances, and his movies, interspersed with television performances and interviews, it is a testament to the phenomena that Elvis is and was. Seeing footage of his army induction, his wedding, and early as well as Las Vegas performances are an interesting draw.
If your looking for a reasonably priced, and entertaining overview of Elvis Presley's life and career, then 'Elvis: King of Entertainment' DVD is something you should buy.
I was surprised at some of the rare footage that I had not seen before, such as Elvis on the Milton Berle show aboard the USS Hancock, and Uncle Milty playing his twin brother, Melvin.
The picture quality of the documentary and sound is top notch as well.
I was surprised at the many performances and interviews that you will see throughout this documentary.
Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
