Donna Douglas of TV's The Beverly Hillbillies and perennial hip-wiggler Elvis Presley team up for this romantic musical set on a riverboat. Presley plays a riverboat gambler down on his luck and out of a girlfriend when he becomes involved with a redhead, a gypsy, and a roulette wheel. Features some great songs such as "When the Saints Go Marchin' In" and "Down By the Riverside."
15 cities. 15 nights. Catch him if you can! The show is over but the fans cry out for what every Elvis Presley fan wants. More! Then, an announcer speaks the words the packed house doesn’t want to hear: "Elvis has left the building." But what an incredible show lingers in minds and hearts. Elvis on Tour is the Golden Globe-winning Best Documentary chronicle of Presley's whirlwind 15-cities/15-nights 1972 tour. They are nights to remember, paced here with more than 25 numbers that embrace the rocker Elvis, the gospel Elvis, the ballad Elvis, even the kung-fu Elvis. In between tour stops come more moments to treasure--montage sequences (supervised by Martin Scorsese) showcasing Presley's early career and movies.
Full screen version with Dutch subtitles.
Elvis : The Lost Performances contains material found by accident in the vaults during a routine inspection in 1986. We get Elvis material from 'That’s The Way It Is' (1970) both on stage and rehearsing, and performances from 'Elvis On Tour' (1972). For anyone who suspected that the producers of the excellent 'That's the Way It Is' had more worthwhile concert footage available to them than they included in the final release, here it is! (or at least some of it).
Restored and revitalized: a new look at Presley, the SUN King. Elvis Presley, wearing his " Mexican sundial " jumpsuit, was nothing but a road warrior in his final year, giving more than 50 shows in five months. Despite what many critics claimed, on many nights Elvis still had the magic. The songs seen here prove it, all drawn from his penultimate tour in late May 1977. Behold, the one and only SUN King, Elvis Presley.
