The King of Rock-n-Roll lives! On his way across New Mexico, Byron Gruman picks up a hitch-hiking impersonator who says he's Elvis Presley really. Skeptical and trying to shake the memory of his wife's death, Byron just wants to drop Elvis off at his Memphis destination. Instead, he finds himself won over by this King, much like everyone they meet including a sexy Marilyn Monroe look-alike. Featuring a scene that was shot inside the Graceland Mansion thanks to Priscilla Presley's involvement as executive producer. With Harvey Keitel, Bridget Fonda, Johnathon Schaech.Written by
The script had to be approved by Priscilla Presley, who enjoyed it so much that she decided to be Executive Producer. See more »

God, if I'd been driving, she's...
She might be alive? Or you might be dead. Maybe both of you would have perished.
How could something so perfect be taken away from me?
I've searched a lifetime for an answer to that question. All I know is, you have to forgive yourself, your woman, god... and have faith that the next love you'll have won't cause you so much pain.

There are two deleted scenes on the DVD:
Elvis (Keitel) helps Byron (Schaech) fix his overheated car
After entering his house and Graceland, Elvis looks at "his" gravesite
This flick offers Elvis and Marilyn Monroe. What more could you ask for? The actors are good and it's worth a look just to see Harvey Keitel do his Elvis, even though he doesn't resemble the King in the least.
Sometimes it gets a little slow, but the simple plot is not predictable so there are a few surprises to keep you interested. And anyone who can't figure out if Keitel's character really is Elvis needs to watch it again.
