Format:VHS Tape
In this first Elvis movie, we see our hero as a young western farmer, too young to have joined his older brothers fighting in the American Civil War. He and his family believe the eldest brother, Vance, to have been killed a while ago, and Clint (Elvis) falls in love with Cathy, Vance's fiancee. They eventually marry, and then the fun starts, as all 3 older brothers suddenly return home from the now ended war. Vance of course still thinks that Cathy is waiting for him to return so they can marry. A fairly bland, yet pleasant story line, acted well by all involved, including young Elvis, who still has blonde hair at this stage of his career. The descision to add 3 further songs to the title theme is a bit of a mistake in my opinion, as these songs do not fit well into the storyline. But it's nice to see Elvis performing them I suppose. Trivia Fact: Elvis's mother, Gladys, was so upset by the original ending of the film (where Clint dies) that the studio called the actors back and made them shoot an extra scene. This had Elvis, superimposed over the graveyard scence, singing an extra verse of Love Me Tender. A good film, showing us that Elvis Presley was more than just a singer. Without a single acting lesson, he does an admirable job as Clint Reno. Well worth watching even if you aren't a diehard Elvis fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Check what you order! 11 Jun 2013

I ordered this expecting the film "Love me Tender" but it's just a compilation of songs from different concerts - my mistake as I didn't check the packaging carefully enough. It's ok, but not as good as the film - much of the content is on other dvds, and many Elvis fans will already have much of it. I should have checked the back of the box first Elvis Presley: Love Me Tender [DVD], but assumed, since I was looking in "Film & TV" that it would be the feature film.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elvis's first effort at film-acting 25 May 2014
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
An interesting first film for Elvis. He plays a young farmer at the time
of the American Civil War, who marries his brother's girl-friend because
the brother is reported as having died in action.
Unfortunately for all concerned, the brother was not killed, and when he
returns home, he is devastated to find that his girl-friend is now married to
his brother.
Elvis tries hard to be a film actor, but shows traces of his inexperience. He
sings a few songs of which "Love me Tender" is the sweetest, and the most
well-known. This film makes you want to see more of Elvis as an actor -
which happens later in "King Creole" - perhaps his best role in films.

What can I say it is what it is a DVD of an Elvis film. The film quality was good and the price reasonable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Elvis DVD 24 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
I bought this thinking it was the DVD of the film 'Love Me Tender' for my husband as he is a big fan. What it actually is is a load of different songs. That's fine but it's not what I wanted.
