It was back in January 1935 that Elvis Aaron Presley entered the world and, within a couple of decades, changed it whole heartedly for the better. The man who not only created what has come to be known as Rock N Roll in all its contexts, but also changed forever the meaning and perception of the word performance , humbly came into being in a ramshackle home in east Mississippi, living the first part of his life barely above the poverty line. But the man who would be King, for it was he, ended his days just 42 years later and only 90 miles away in Memphis, Tennessee, in circumstances wholly removed from those in which he started them. But the opulence, splendour, wealth and plenty that Elvis began to attract soon after the release of his first record was merely a side product of the King s talent, skill originality, and charisma. This box set features two films which look at, document and detail each end of Elvis s career. The Memphis Flash is a study of his early career in the 1950s and tells the story of how Elvis came to be the performer and artist he was. The Last Stop Hotel looks at his final years and most notably his last few weeks. Both films feature exclusive interviews with Elvis closest colleagues and industry insiders, rare footage, seldom seen photos, location shoots, news reports and numerous other features.
Comprende due diversi documentari: The Memphis Flash, uno studio approfondito sugli inizi della sua carriera, e The Last Stop Hotel che invece documenta l'ultimo periodo della sua fantastica storia, in particolare le settimane prima della sua morte.
