This collection of Elvis's movies is very interesting.

Elvis could be quite a good actor when the material was solid and he firmly displays this in several films here. In some of his later films the King looked quite bored, the stories and scripts were not too good, the flicks looked cheap and rushed and the songs were poorer.

In this set;

Love Me Tender (1956) - The only Elvis movie which is kinda' above serious critique. It was his first film, the story is ambitious, the settings are lovely and the songs are good. Elvis looks full of spunk and enthusiasm and all others are very competent. It sorta' doesn't matter that much that Elvis is in no way convincing as a cowboy and the musical moments are awkward, clumsy and in no way convincing in this era in time. The film goes for a dramatic ending and it gets a huge plus for that - it's hard not to be touched by it in some way.

Flaming Star (1960) - This film is a good example of how Elvis's movie career could have turned out. A first rate director (Don Siegel), working with a decent script and a good cast delivered one of the King's best movies. Elvis is fine as Pacer Burton - a halfbreed caught in the middle in a war between Kiowa indians and white folks. Great scope photography - solid (but very few) songs and plenty of action; Flaming Star is a very good movie in most respects.

Wild in the Country (1961) - In between lightweight material such as "G.I. Blues" and "Blue Hawaii" Presley was allowed to make movies he was more interested in. "Flaming Star" and "Wild in the Country" were closer to what Elvis wanted and here he gives a splendid performance as a rebellious youth who's blessed with great literary talent.

It is good choice for Elvis' fans who like to see Elvis as an actor.
He IS a splendid actor, and you can see "Wilde in the Country" and "Flaming Star" and other ones in which Elvis made his best from even average scripts.
