Movie Info

Covering the rise of music legend Elvis Presley (Kurt Russell), this film starts with his early years in Mississippi and Tennessee raised by his parents, Gladys (Shelley Winters) and Vernon (Bing Russell). Eventually, Elvis forms a partnership with "Colonel" Tom Parker (Pat Hingle) that leads to the release of his first song, "Heartbreak Hotel," which zooms to the top of the charts. Elvis soon catapults to stardom, marrying the beautiful Priscilla (Season Hubley) and becoming an actor too.

Critic Reviews for Elvis

  • Respectful, unpretentious and elegant (a Carpenter characteristic), if somewhat ungainly in its substitution of California real estate for Memphis and Mississippi locations, the modestly budgeted 'Elvis' remains the definitive screen portrayal of Presley.

  • [John] Carpenter... puts the dramatic focus on the relationships and tricky social dynamic with the male friends who became Elvis support group and entourage.

  • A performance de Russell impecvel; como se vssemos o prprio Elvis. Porm, o fraco roteiro se limita a retratar momentos da vida deste, sem procurar conhec-lo melhor.

    John Carpenter and Kurt Russell's first team-up is this thumbnail overview biopic to Tupelo's baritone bomber and his ever-so-fraught-with-rumor behind-the-scenes relationships: his Ma, his manager, his monkeys, and his wife. Though Russell's King is disconcertingly spot-on still the piece plays exactly how it was intended to: like a TV movie.
