Movie Reviews

One of the better sets of Elvis movies
A Fan | VA | 08/31/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD includes four of Elvis Presley's movies: 1957's Jailhouse Rock, 1963's It Happened at the World's Fair, 1968's Stay Away Joe, and 1969's Charro!

Jailhouse Rock is the best out of the bunch. It was Elvis' third film and includes an outstanding collection of early rock songs such as "Jailhouse Rock", "Treat Me Nice", and "Young and Beautiful". Elvis stars as an ex-con who makes it big as a singer after his release from prison. Tragically, Elvis' co-star, Judy Tyler, was killed in an automobile accident a few weeks after the film was completed. Elvis was so upset by the loss that he refused to ever watch the completed film. In 2004, this film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

It Happened at the World's Fair is lighthearted musical comedy that was typical of Elvis movies.

Stay Away, Joe is a modern western, comedy-drama with Elvis staring as Navajo Indian trying to help out his family and people.

Charro! is a serious, more mature, western drama and one of Elvis' last films, and his only role that didn't feature the him singing on-screen (he does sing the theme song but it is off-screen). This is a typical late-60's western and is not a bad movie. It is my second favorite in this collection.

If you like Elvis Presley movies, you should enjoy this DVD.
