Trivia

The series' creator and executive producer Rick Husky originally envisioned a multi-season chronology of Elvis's early career, including the first movie years and his time in the army. The premise was to show the "MTV generation" that Elvis was "not a guy in a white jumpsuit in Las Vegas". See more »

Excellent Production
11 January 2000 | by Ed in MOSee all my reviews

As a fan of the early years of Elvis Presley, I was very pleased by the high quality of this production. The acting was outstanding, particularly the actor and actress who played the characters of Elvis and his mother, Gladys.

I felt I understood Elvis much better after seeing this production. It placed Elvis within the context of a time and a place: Memphis in the mid '50's. And the production was very inspirational; it let you know that Elvis was not just a rock and roll sensation that popped up from nowhere, but a young man who worked very hard at perfecting his craft with the help of a great producer, Sam Phillips, some very talented musicians, Scotty Moore, Bill Black, and D.J. Fontana, and a mother who nurtured his creativity and his talent.

The other points of interest included the religious atmosphere that pervaded the South in the middle of the century, and the black rhythm and blues artists that were the foundation of rock music. I give this production nine stars.
