Storyline

One of many biographical films involving Elvis Presley. Shortly after Elvis' separation from Priscilla in February 1972, Elvis met a former Memphis beauty queen, Linda Thompson, and her friend Jeannie Lemay at a movie theater in Memphis in July 1972. This made for TV movie stars Stephanie Zimbalist as Linda Thimpson and Don a Johnson as Elvis Presley and focuses on their turbulent 4 year relationship, which focuses primarily on Elvis' drug abuse & his affairs with other women. This movie does not portray Elvis in the best light, so fans who are easily offended in regards to negative stories involving Elvis may want to pass on this one.

Not the worst. Not the best.

I still remember when I first saw this movie on television and the entrance of Don Johnson as Elvis made me laugh out loud. His high pitched voice was so unlike Elvis, it was almost like a Saturday Night Live routine that was SUPPOSED to be ridiculous. Stephanie Zimbalist I found impressive as an actress, but the only reason I could see to watch this movie at all was to hear Ronnie McDowell's excellent voice impression of Elvis seen on stage. As expected, the Las Vegas jumpsuits were perfect, but it isn't enough to make this anything but an interesting curio. Better to watch the Kurt Russell film "Elvis," directed by John Carpenter. They need little bit of trivia. Elvis Presley did play a character named John Carpenter in one of his later films.
