Movie Reviews

Elvis' Best Movie
Shopaholic108 | Atlanta, GA | 02/17/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're an Elvis fan but aren't particularly fond of the girls-fawning-over-him movies, make sure you see his early work. Although they are black and white, this and Jailhouse rock are definitely his best movies. And, King Creole features the oh-so-sexy "Trouble," which isn't a very common Elvis song, but I can't emphasize enough how HOT it is to watch him sing it!!!! The new DVD is a wonderful quality too, much better than VHS. So if you already have the VHS, make sure you upgrade to this DVD. LOVE IT!"
Elvis' finest movie
A Fan | VA | 08/31/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Released in 1958, King Creole may be Elvis Presley's best movie and performance as an actor. Elvis plays Danny Fisher, a young, tough musician trying to make the big time in New Orleans. The movie soundtrack is also very good and was an innovative attempt to meld traditional Dixieland music with the still new Rock & Roll genre. This is one of the movies that Elvis should be remembered by; before Colonel Parker started churning out mediocre scripts and soundtracks in order to make a quick buck!"
