Storyline

Altered By Elvis is a documentary exploration of lives deeply and permanently affected by Elvis Presley. As a society we know everything there is to know about Elvis Presley, but what about those he left behind? Altered By Elvis follows those who have been imprinted, fathered, fulfilled and even destroyed by the King of rock and roll. The love for Elvis is contagious, and everyone knows someone that claims to be, "Elvis' number ONE fan", but what if we dig much deeper to find the untold stories of the people he left behind... the ravages of pop culture. We will follow these individuals home and show the viewer their own lives; and how they, literally, walk with Elvis - in his shadow, with his ghost and in his light - still to this day. We will hear Larry Geller's recounting of styling Elvis' hair for the star's funeral and hear about the outrageous tales of devotion from fans ... and the reason why Jimmy HATES Elvis.

Great Documentary!
25 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a great documentary with intriguing characters, many of whom are not referred to in other Elvis docs. It shows how many individuals were truly affected by this well know icon. The original music compliments the interviews well. A great mix of past and up to date influences by this great celebrity who's impact still lives on for many. The home town feel is definitely present. Although, not all affects were completely positive, the respect for Elvis definitely comes through in most cases. His affects are still day to day for some,

and residual but strong in memory for others. The documentary was enhanced by the filming and editing which flowed nicely from interview to interview interspersed with original photos that were wonderful.
