One the most ambitious and entertaining projects about the legend of Elvis.
12 August 2001 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

ABC-TV is commended for their top notch attitude and efforts in this mini-series. So many projects have turned out to be just a mockery; but this presentation gives a interesting look at the life and legend of one of the world's most beloved entertainers. The series was canceled a few episodes before its scheduled conclusion; but this had nothing to do with the quality of the project in toto.

A lot of myth is not dispelled, but it gives even the non Elvis fan a look at the raw beginnings of a major superstar's career. As for true blue Elvis fans, only minor complaints. Namely some of the characters names and places and events are not totally accurate. This is probably due to legal reasons.

Michael St. Gerard is second only to Kurt Russell in physically presenting the essence of Elvis. The uncanny resemblance, mannerisms and total look is terrific. Kudos to St. Gerard for his achievement and successful role as Elvis.

Veteran actor Billy Green Bush plays a more animated Vernon Presley. Millie Perkins, who co-starred with Elvis in WILD IN THE COUNTRY(61),plays Gladys Presley. Jordan Williams is the most often arrogant record producer Sam Phillips. Jesse Dabson plays Scotty Moore, one of the major contributors to Elvis' early sound. Blake Gibbons plays the hot tempered and easily disgruntled stand-up base player Bill Black.

St. Gerard lip synchs to the voice of country singer Ronnie McDowell, who has been used several times as the singing voice of Elvis. Your time will not be wasted watching this look at the meager beginnings of the dynamic, unequaled career of the more than legendary Elvis Presley.
