If you're an Elvis purist, stay away. This film takes great liberties with the life of the King and David Keith really doesn't look like him, either. Never mind, because Heartbreak Hotel is such a sweet (and manipulative!) picture that you'll be reaching for your hanky by the end.

The films of Elvis himself will be the Old Testament, and Heartbreak Hotel will be one of the Gospels.
