I have been an Elvis fan for many years and have watched lots of different programs on Elvis.This has to be the best one of the lot, because it is told mainly by Prisilla Presley & Lisa Marie.
They have nothing to hide and have no reason to lie, so pretty much what they say you can take as the truth.
Overall all they give quite an insight into Elvis and help put a lot of the missing pieces into the complex life that was Elvis Presley.
The version aired on T.V recently was less than an hour, this is the full length version, nearly 4 hours!.
The dvd has some interesting extra's like the account of when Elvis met Nixon and a short film about the karate film Elvis wanted to make.
All in all this is the ultimate documentry about Elvis, even non Elvis fans can watch this and gain an insight to what was Elvis and is world.The unseen footage is again first class, probably about 30 to 40 minutes of the footage I myself had never seen before and that is saying a lot, I have been an Elvis fan 30 years.
Picture quality is good for a T.V program and you have the option of normal 2 channel stereo or 5.1 surround.I opt for the 5.1 sound because it is much clearer and you can hear the music much better.
So, get on your blue suede shoes and hot foot it down to your local retailer and get the ultimate dvd of the King Elvis.
Thankyou,thankyou very much
