Product Description

Elvis Presley triple bill. Presley made his acting debut in 'Love Me Tender' (1956), starring as a young Texan farmer who, upon hearing of his older brother's (Richard Egan) death in the Civil War, marries his sweetheart (Debra Paget). When the older brother returns from the war alive and well, a bitter feud between the siblings begins. In 'The Flaming Star' (1960) Presley stars as the son of a white rancher (John McIntire) and a Kiowa Indian (Dolores del Rio), who finds himself caught between the settlers and the Kiowas when his mother's people go on the warpath. Attempting to act as peacemaker, he becomes embroiled in the violence. In 'Wild in the Country' (1961) Presley stars as country delinquent Glenn Tyler, who is paroled into his uncle's care on the condition that he pays weekly visits to widowed psychiatrist Irene Sperry (Hope Lange). She discovers that Glenn is a talented writer, and encourages him to attend college. Meanwhile, Glenn is simultaneously dating the pushy Noreen (Tuesday Weld) and the more reserved Betty Lee Parsons (Millie Perkins).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Format: Blu-ray
Why import a Region A (U.S.A.) Blu-Ray of "Love Me Tender" into the U.K. & not release a Region 2 (Europe/U.K.) Blu-Ray, as all Region A Blu-Rays won't play on U.K. players.
I would love to see a Blu-Ray remastered version of Elvis's 1st movie but won't be able too, as I don't have an American Blu-Ray player, as I'm from 7 living in the U.K.
A good movie for his first attempt (hence the 3 stars) but the next 3 were his best.
So come on whoever is releasing this Blu-Ray, do us all a favour & release it on Blu-Ray in the U.K.
