In the movie during Elvis' first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show the producers and director say a few times to shoot Elvis "above the waist". In reality it was actually the 3rd time Presley was on the show, NOT the first time. See more »

The one & only king of impersonation of Elvises!!!
12 September 2002 | by (Rockland County, NY) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie, too bad it's not on VHS or DVD. Russell does the best impersonation of Elvis Presley I ever saw & I saw them all. :) This movie doesn't go into the last years of his life, but we don't really want to remember Elvis all bloated, we want to remember him like this movie portrayed him as.
