This 2004 documentary is a tribute to Elvis Presley by his friends and peers. Honestly, how could anyone know in 1954, when Sun single 209 "That's All Right" was released that the young 19-year-old truck driver would become one of the world's most beloved entertainers? A musical legacy that will never be matched; and a very successful movie career that began waning in the mid 60's. There was the "The Comeback TV Special" that allowed Elvis to reinvent himself. Then the King taking his act on the road with sold out concerts, even when he became a mere parody of himself; right up till his early death in 1977.
This documentary celebrates Elvis' long and varied career in show biz through interviews with the likes of: Sam Phillips, Tom Jones, Scotty Moore, Pat Boone, Mac Davis, Suzie Quatro, Joe Cocker, ZZ Top, Barry Gibb, Teri Garr, Jackie De Shannon, Tab Hunter, Wink Martindale, Patti Page, Glen Campbell, Neil Sedaka and Charlie Hodge. With a myriad of Elvis tributes out there, this is not the best and not the worst; but well worth your attention.
