This is by far the best Elvis documentary that I've seen. There are rare clips, insights and interviews that make other productions seem one dimensional. Some reviews have said that this production is too positive and leaves out the gory details of his life (or death). I'd say it's pretty balanced and making his death, his drug dependence etc. the centre of the documentary would skew it into an area that has nothing to do with his talent, personality and musical genius. Plus why would your family want to dwell on such morbid areas, particularly when there is so much written out there that focuses just on the negatives. This film captures the essence of his life and spirit very well. Very much recommended to Elvis addicts. Very well put together and long enough to keep you going for several sittings of an Elvis fix.

As you would imagine, this is a biased account but how could it be anything else. And more importantly, it is none the worse for it. Everyone has their viewpoint on Elvis and it was interesting to hear Lisa's and Priscilla's. Much of what was said was in agreement with what many others have written. However, their accounts, even of his foibles or 'bad' behaviours, were told with amusement and love - his positive memory is certainly safe in their hands. I was more interested in gleening more about these two women and in that sense, the dvd content was too stage managed for anything really personal to emerge. Lisa emerged as the more natural character while the extent of Priscilla's cosmetic surgery was a total distraction to me as a viewer - hardly what you would call natural at all!! This is not essential viewing; if you want to know about Elvis's life and career story then there are far better informed sources. Also, it seemed to me, that most of the clips of him performing are taken from other dvds so there would be a fair bit of repetition for anyone who has these.

Thank you to the Presleys for making this :) I haven't been to Graceland yet but I am hoping to this year and I can't wait :)

This was wonderful as this gives a deep insight into the King of Rock and Roll - Elvis Presley. I enjoyed this dvd very much as it covered everything about Elvis you did or didn't know. Thanks to Priscilla for saving Graceland for the fans and opening it to the public in 1982. Elvis will live forever with his wonderful music he has left for generations to enjoy. Thank You. 10/10
