Not an Elvis bio. This film highlights some unpleasant experiences Elvis' stepbrother and bodyguard David Stanley had while working for Elvis in the 1970's. I know Stanley and it's based on true events.

Who has seen this movie? Met David Stanley in LA in 2003 back when he was looking for investors for this film. Wondering what others thought of it who've seen it. (I'm guessing it's not a film for the entire family)

[font=Courier New] If you like b-movies, this is the one for you! From the very first voice over it is evident that the next ninety minutes will be very hard to take seriously.
The acting is forced; the narrative is forced and choppy. Elvis doesn't exactly [i]look[/i] like Elvis in this one. The movie is so bad that it's comical.

***Spoiler Alert***

One scene that make this movie worth stomaching is when David's young wife is duped into giving him a ride to the airport so he can 'just say goodbye to' Elvis before he goes on tour. After she drops him off, only to see him kiss some groupie and jump into the jet to go on tour, she [i]doesn't get mad[/i].

There were no Elvis songs.

But, it was better than 'Vanilla Sky".
