There is one sequence in the film where the producers chose to show a segment of Elvis performing live READY TEDDY at a Ed Sullivan Show in 1956. Elvis's manager tried hard to convince them not to use this segment as he didn't want Elvis to appear as a nostalgia act. He explained them that Elvis was a modern performer and they didn't have to show this 1956 performance. The producers left the segment in the film and it was released like this. See more »

This award winning movie for best documentary is well worth a watch. Elvis doesn't look as good as before in it but his singing is better than ever. There is some great performances including 'An American Trilogy' and 'Johnny B. Goode'. It's amusing but ends sad. It was the last film by Elvis Presley and his only one to win an award. The rock 'n' roll is great on this video including his early songs including 'Blue suede shoes'. There is a great version of 'Love me Tender' and clips from his movies and this is what makes it sad , looking back on when Elvis looked better.
