Paul Boensch III
One of three films that Elvis Presley and Kurt Russell have in common. Russell appeared in the Elvis movie It Happened at the World's Fair (1963), he portrayed Presley in the TV movie "Elvis" (1979), and he played an Elvis impersonator in 3000 Miles to Graceland (2001). In "It Happened at the World's Fair," Russell (who was a young boy at the time), ran on screen and kicked Elvis in the shin. In "3000 Miles to Graceland," this scene is parodied when a young boy runs on screen and kicks Russell (in full Elvis attire) in the shin. See more »
This movie is one of those "WOW!" movies. Not because it's the greatest movie of all time, but because it surprised me. Not only was it a T.V. movie, but it was on Elvis. I can safely say as many impersonators as there are there was only one Elvis, but I can also safely say that Kurt Russel came extremely close to being the real thing. It was one of the greatest impersonations that I have ever seen. He had me believing that it was really him. I learned a lot about Elvis' life from watching this movie. And don't led the television part of it let you stray-it's actually a really fantastic film! And Kurt Russel could've been Elvis' twin :)
