Good collection - Elvis plays Cowboy...and wins!
on 4 February 2004
Love Me Tender - a great film, Elvis is pretty raw, but so's the part he plays, so that's alright then...the ending is predictable, but the songs are great, especially the title song.
Wild In the Country - a touch of the "angry young man" - not a cowboy film, and probably the most formulaic of the three in the set, but still interesting. Elvis plays a young man who has a menial job and talent as a writer...you probably think you can guess the rest, but there are a few twists and turns which you might not expect in an EP movie.
Flaming Star - this is the best of the three IMHO - Elvis plays a half-native who runs into conflict with both his fathers race and his mothers race. Elvis is entirely believable in the role of a young man torn two ways. The title song, again, is excellent.
I recommend this collection - I thoroughly enjoyed it!
