Movie Reviews

Full Frame videos from widescreen movies ...
Richardson | Sunny California USA | 10/30/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"For Elvis fans...this appears to be very fun..a nice collection of clips from old TV appearances and Movies and the TWO BONUS press conferences are absolutely essential. My huge complaint is that the clips from the movies and concert films are presented FULL FRAME..and cropped pretty severely in some cases (like Jailhouse Rock which was a very widescreen film). If you don't mind the cropping of picture then give it an extra couple of stars and enjoy!


REVIEW UPDATE!!
this is now available in the UK (amazon.co.uk) as an NTSC release..with a HUGE exception...it has 30 clips!!! plus the same two bonus features...
its TWICE the material!!! They call it "ELVIS the king of Rock N Roll" and has the gold sticker on the front with the #1's logo...."

"The folks at RCA really dropped the ball on this one. When considering the extensive amount of Presley footage, "Elvis #1 Hit Performances" is a half-hearted, slapdash effort. The DVD exists as a sampler for the uninitiated, with poorly edited "bonus material." If RCA had any integrity, they would pull this release off the market and start from scratch."
Unless you are a "new" fan, AVOID THIS RELEASE!!!...

"I bought this DVD for the bonus features, the press conferences.
NEITHER ONE OF THEM ARE PRESENTED IN THEIR ENTIRETY!
the first press conference from 1960 is normally 45+ minutes in length, on this DVD you get just over 2 minutes of it and that is poorly edited!
You can get the entire press conference on the Graceland tour video, available through the official Elvis catalog or website.
The New York Madison Square Garden Press conference 1972 normally runs 20+ minutes, but on this DVD, you only get just over 6 minutes,
and it is presented in a "rough cut" form
I have been looking for an unedited version of this particular press conference on video/DVD for years, I thought that I had found it on this release, no where on this DVD, does it state that the bonus features are edited or shortened, so you think that you are getting the full unedited versions, WRONG!
The M.S.G. press conference footage presented here is also available on the DVD,
Elvis Presley - Rare Moments With the King
as well as several other DVD releases and on those, you get more minutes of footage.
You would think that since this is an official release, you would get better quality and that they would at least mention that the bonus features are not presented in their entirety, not so.
All of the other clips on Elvis #1 Hit Performances are readily available on other (much better) RCA-EPE video releases and the average Elvis fan, most likely already has them in their collection, so unless you are new to the Elvis world, AVOID THIS RELEASE!!!...
It was designed for the mass market, "nothing" new here!"

"These performances of some of Elvis' classic hits are wonderful timepieces. Watch Elvis as is matures from a young, edgy musical revolutionary to the King of Vegas. Most of these apperances were historic and helped shape the evolution of Rock and Roll and popular music. A must for Elvis fans and students of popular music!"
