1972. My family needed some help, my town needed a hero, and my band needed a break. So I borrowed Mom's pink Cadillac and I kidnapped Elvis Presley, and our lives were never the same again. See more »
The name of the hotel is "Flaming Star," which is also the name of Elvis Presley's 6th movie. See more »
The jet in the movie ending is a Cessna Citation 500. Although commercially available since 1971, the airplane on the movie (registry N888GA - cn 500-0132) was built in 1973, one year after the movie events. See more »
When I first met you, I didn't like you at all. I thought you were the most arrogant, selfish, ungrateful little bastard I'd ever met.
Then I started to remember how much I was like that at your age.
Elvis, man. What happened at the talent show - thanks. I know you did that for me.
Hell no, kid. I didn't do that for you. I did that for rock and roll.

HEARTBREAK HOTEL takes the viewer on a light hearted "what if" fantasy ride to the world of the Elvis of 1972. The makers of this movie were certainly Elvis fans. There is a good amount of detailed inside information about Elvis and the plot respects his musical talents, although there is some poking fun at his personal habits.
HEARTBREAK HOTEL accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. I hope more rock 'n roll fantasy movies will be made in the future.
