Terrific movie, PERFECT DVD transfer!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"First I would like to applaud Lion's Gate Home Entertainment for the perfect job they did with transferring this film to DVD. Having never seen this movie (gasp) before I bought it on DVD, the first thing I noticed was that they not only kept the original "VistaVision" opening sequence, but that the transfer was so flawless as to make it appear that I was watching it from a projector onto the silver screen. Splendid, wonderful, perfect transfer that I could not forget to mention. Sound is awesome as well, 5 stars to YOU, Lion's Gate.
Onto the film. It is true what people say here about the film being almost biographical about Elvis' early years. It is also very dramatic and is a wonderful mix of fun and drama. Here Elvis is still the young, wild stallion, the rebel King. He is lean and mean, and I think he knows it. Set in a smallish town, he is called up on stage to do a number spontaneously and the rest is history. A talent scout in the audience eventually coaxes him to leave behind the world of automobiles to become a musical legend. Trust is a main theme in this movie with Deke Rivers (Elvis) confused about his loyalties, or even if he should trust his own manager. Wow - very biographical come to think of it!
Did I mention how visually stunning the movie is? How beautiful and perfect the color is? Yes I did, but I can't stress it enough. This movie is ear and eye candy, with a great story to match."

Small town girl, big star boy!

""Loving You" is based on a story written by Mary Agnes Thompson from the magazine Good Housekeeping. At the time she wrote the story, the young Oklahoma girl had no idea it would be transformed into the wonderful big screen sensation starring one of the biggest stars in the world. Even though the story seems biographical regarding Elvis, Mary Agnes Thompson knew nothing about him aside from hearing a couple of his songs on the radio. This movie is a must see for all, not only Elvis fans. If you're lucky enough to find a copy of the story, it is worth the read."
ELV1S IS SHOWN ROCKING

"This very pleasant film is very enjoyable to watch. It is almost an early biographical film showing "how " ELV1S was discovered and then marketed. The only difference is in real life after ELV1S was discovered he was taken advantage of by his real manager who took 50% of the earinings , an unheard amount which ended up in court after the death of the "King". But back to the film, the most enjoyable part of the film is seeing ELV1S on stage rocking with several great numbers, however one of my favorite songs of all time is the beautiful ballad called "Loving You" a simple ballad song with feeling and a wonderful voice that many dont remember ELV1S for. This film shows ELV1S can rock as well as sing some of the most beautiful ballads in the world. The song "Loving You" is worth the price as it is sung in a couple different settings and sung at 2 different tempos,( I prefer the slow one) . ELV1S wasnt just the "king of rock and roll" but one of the best ballad singers in history.One enjoyable bit of trivia, is to watch and see the real parents of ELV1S in the crowd as ELV1S sings a rocking song and goes down into the cheering crowd. Keep your eyes open and you will see his dad and the mother that he adored and cherished."
