Jailhouse Rock (Available On DVD)
His third & argueably best film. Filmed in ultra-cool black and white,(it's a 1957 flick) Elvis Presley's third and
argueably best film is chock-a-block full of great moments. This should be the first Elvis movie you ever see...
King Creole (Available On DVD)
By the time Elvis became a bonefide movie star,director Michael Curtiz was being hailed as the greatest director of his
time with "Casablanca" under his belt. This 1958 drama and Presley's fourth feature outing has Curtiz directing Elvis into
his most memorable character...Danny Fisher. A young Elvis at this best...
Loving You (Available On DVD)
It's the story of Elvis all over! This 1957 musical story has a young Elvis playing a young singer's meteoric rise
to the top, and is more or less a version of Presley's own career. His first movie in colour, it's also filled with some of
his best and well known songs such as Teddy Bear, Mean Woman Blues and of course the ballad Loving You.
G.I. Blues (Available On DVD)
Elvis's first movie after leaving the U.S army. The Elvis of this 1960
movie is the one who made almost 30 more just like it. Songs include "It's Not Good Enough for You," "Tonight Is So Right
for Love," and "Wooden Heart."
Blue Hawaii (Available On DVD)
The cultural status of this film stands the test of time...it's probably
the first movie that comes to mind when "Elvis" and "movies" are mentioned in the same sentence. Originally titled "Beach
Boy", this 1961 musical comedy became the most successful film of Elvis Presley's career - thanks to the classic song "Can't
Help Falling in Love."
Girl Happy (Available On DVD)
One of my all time favourite Elvis
movies.....It was the first Elvis movie I saw when I was about 3 or 4 years old. The soundtrack is quite possibly the best
of all the Elvis movies, with ballads like "Do Not Disturb,"and "Puppet On A String'' and ofcourse the rocking title song
"Girl Happy". In 2007, the movie was remastered and available for the first time on DVD.
It Happened At The World's Fair (Available on DVD)
This 1963 musical is one of the best Elvis movies
ever, with Elvis girl-hunting and babysitting at the World's Fair in Seattle.Lots of gorgeous sixties chicks -and nostalgic
moments too, like Kurt Russell's famous kick-on-the-shin to Elvis. One of the best Elvis soundtracks as well....New 2004 dvd
release from Paramount
Fun In Acapulco (Available On DVD)
Elvis's jobs in this 1963 flick are among his craziest movie gigs:
he begins as a deckhand, is hired as a night club entertainer /lifeguard, but is revealed to be a trapeze artist in his former
life. By the end, of course, he is also a cliff diver. The first of many Bond girls to come -the hot Ursula Andress (fresh
from doing Dr. NO with Sean Connery )- keeps Elvis company.
Viva Las Vegas (Available On DVD)
It's pretty tough to beat Jailhouse Rock in terms of sheer entertainment,
but Elvis lovers are particularly fond of this 1964 hit. The Big E plays race-car driver Lucky Jackson, who arrives in Las
Vegas for an upcoming Grand Prix race. Then there are the songs, of course, including the snappy title tune, a rockin' rendition
of Ray Charles's "What'd I Say?".
