THE KING LIVES ON. Without doubt the best biographical film ever made. "This is Elvis" combines both familiar and previously unseen film of the King, together with some superbly recreated scenes from his life. Nothing is missed as the film traces the young Elvis who, influenced by the blues music of the deep south, takes his own kind of sound into the famous Sun studios. In 1956 "That's All Right Mama" was recorded and became an instant hit in the southern states of America. Several more records followed and all bigger than the previous one so it wasn't long before major interest centred on this young and extremely talented boy. Record giants RCA bought Presley's contract and under the guiding hand of Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis took the whole country by storm. More massive hits followed and constant exposure in every form of the media was now common place. Hollywood was just around the corner and Elvis' film career took this now world superstar to even greater heights. "This is Elvis also follows the hardships of his life, the loss of his mother, the break-up of his marriage, and, of course, his untimely death. To summarize... "This is Elvis" is a definitive motion picture documentary that traces the phenomenal career of the man they called the King of Rock 'n' Roll-from the hardships of his childhood in Tupelo to his rock 'n' emergence in Memphis - from Gracelands to the promised land - the man - the music - the motion picture - This is Elvis © Warner Bros, Inc.
