Live a little, Love a little a film by Norman Taurog
Submitted by Warner Brothers Home Entertainment

This was one of Elvis more daring and adult orientated films. The 28th film to be exact! Elvis is Greg Nolan a successful photographer that works for a slick adult entertainment magazine and for an advertising company. The only problem he has to keep this hidden from his superiors, especially since both are in the same building. Michelle Carey is Bernice/Betty/Suzie/Alice a sex starving beach beauty that makes live a bit too difficult for Elvis and a bit too expensive, hence the two jobs and the funny situations.

This movie cast Elvis an adult male instead of a teenager and put him even in bed with his female co-star Michelle. The film  ... continue reading

Rockabilly Day, 25 & 26/08/2007
First year they did a 2 day festival, so if they want to keep this going on, maybe they should change the name. A great festival always nice to see so many familiar faces there and meet a few new people.
It started on Saturday night, with a double gig in a tent, on stage the Ugly Buggy Boys and the Rocka-t-bones. First on stage the Ugly Buggy Boys, very good band and great show. They played songs like: “Bananas”, “Smoke on the water”.
Next on stage: Miss Beeby, a nice burlesque show.
By then it was time for the last band of the evening: The Rocka- t- bones. I’m always impressed by the way Selim slaps that bass, what a great player.  ... continue reading

THIS IS ELVIS: a film by Malcolm Leo and Andrew Solt
DVD submitted by Warner Brothers Home Entertainment

This is Elvis, is indeed another documentary on the live of the man! However “yet another documentary” aren’t the right words for this masterpiece of cinema.

Made in 1981, by two of the best music documentary makers on this globe Malcolm Leo and Andrew Solt and produced by David L Wolper, the 97 minutes long film is indeed pure class!
Malcolm Leo became famous as a director with documentaries like “Rolling Stone : Twenty years of Rock and Roll” and musical shows like “Rock and Roll Moments” or “Bob Hope's Overseas Christmas Tours: Around the World with the Troops - 1941-1972”. As a producer he was involved  ... continue reading

STAY AWAY JOE : A film by Peter Tewksbury
Submitted by Warner Brothers Home Entertainment

This one is a mixed bag! Some will say it’s a good film; others will say it is the worst film ever made by the man. The truth is, 1968 was a big year for Presley, since it is also the year of his comeback concert. For this reason alone one can’t blame him if he looks like he just don’t care.

Anyway the film is fun as usual and is full of feel-good moments. Half-breed rodeo star Joe Lightcloud (Elvis Presley) isn’t really the smartest guy in town and although he does have a handful of good ideas he is a danger to himself. Everywhere he comes, is plagued by trouble, some of them caused by him.

Elvis sings “All I Needed Was  ... continue reading

Stolen Elvis Presley gun is recovered
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A handgun stolen from an exhibit during last week's commemoration of the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death has been recovered.

Surveillance video showed a man reaching into a display case at the "Elvis After Dark" exhibit at Graceland, Presley's mansion, and removing a black, 9 mm Smith & Wesson pistol on Aug 14.

Travis Brookins turned the gun over to police Monday after the theft was reported by news media.

Brookins said he was cleaning portable toilets behind the exhibit hall last Thursday when he found the gun in the muck. Unaware the weapon had been stolen, Brookins took it home and cleaned  ... continue reading

KISSIN’ COUSINS a film by Gene Nelson
Submitted by Warner Brothers Home Entertainment

This fifteenth film of Elvis is what you can call a real double feature. In this 1964 feature film Elvis gives the best of him as air force lieutenant Josh Morgan and as hillbilly Jodie Tatum. And if that is not enough the two of them are opposite op each other in this Romantic Musical. Elvis Fighting Elvis…find out who’s going to win…

As usual the plots are paper-thin but that is forgiven because of the feel-good music and the good-looking farmer girls. This time Elvis (as lieutenant Josh Morgan) has to convince his some distant hillbilly relatives to give up their land so the Military can use is to install a new missile base. However  ... continue reading
