What a Life,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elvis Presley: This Is Elvis [VHS] (VHS Tape)
No matter how many times I watch this video it will always send tears to my eyes. This version is much better than the television one. The bits I didnt like are the impersonations or "look alikes". I just wanted this to be only Elvis. From that dashing "rebel" (hes got the James Dean's sultry looks) in King Creole (his best film ever) to his last performance before his death - what a waste of his acting career. And what about the 1968 comeback special - his best I reckon. He was at his physical best - very lean and tall - in the Frank Sinatra show. And you could feel the loss of his sparkle when his marriage ended - he had everything but love. Irony isnt it when you think of all those beautiful ballads he sung and he never sings any song (save the Hollywood stuff of course)if he didnt believe in them.
