Many believe King Creole to be the best film that Elvis ever made. Well, that's not far wrong, as King Creole is an excellent film, so good that I would rate it very close to the likes of Rebel Without a Cause.
The cast is great (Walter Matthau, Dean Jagger & Carolyn Jones) plus the legendary Michael Curtiz of Casablanca fame, in the directors seat.
King Creole is so good that many critics, and indeed fans can't see past it. Which is a shame as Elvis made many more high calibur films, that, when looked at without pre-conceptions about the fluff and beach films, we have a very fine actor in Mr Presley.
It's also a pity that there are no special features on this DVD, as the transfer is excellent as is the great sound.
My personal recommendations, aside from King Creole, I would say that Flaming Star was his best film. Check out the 10 best below, they are excellent.
1 Flaming Star
2 King Creole
3 Wild in the Country
4 The Trouble With Girls
5 Change of Habit
6 Jailhouse Rock
7 Follow that Dream
9 Stay Away Jow
10 It Happened at the Worlds Fair
