"This informative and entertaining documentary is a must have companion piece for any lifelong Elvis fan, or a great way to introduce yourself to the life and career of The King.
"Elvis Thru the Years" is a hour and a half long documentary that combines still and video footage, in both color and black and white, with a fast paced, entertaining narration, to create a complete picture of Elvis' career. The documentary traces Presley's life from his humble origins in Tupleo, Mississippi, thru his early recording days. It delves into the controversy surrounding his early TV and radio appearances, explores his time in uniform and return to show business, offers a glimpse of his film career and observes over his death and the legacy he left behind.
The documentary feature is worth owning the DVD for, but the special features truly make this a must have. Over an hour of special features are present on the DVD, and some of the footage has never been released before. These features include:
-The First Elvis Impersonator - An appearance on the Milton Berle show. See if you can tell the difference from the real thing!
-Range Round-Up - Elvis plays with Steve Allen
-World's Most Famous Haircut - Extended footage of Elvis' first haircut for the Army
