Synopsis

Kurt Russell IS Elvis in an electrifying performance!

Just two years after Elvis Presley died, Kurt Russell brought him back to life in the original biopic about the King of Rock 'n' Roll. Broadcast on ABC in 1979, Elvis marked the first time that director John Carpenter and actor Kurt Russell would work together in what would become a legendary pairing in film history (Escape From New York, The Thing, Big Trouble In Little China, and Escape From L.A.).

Tracing Presley's life from his impoverished childhood to his meteoric rise to stardom, to his triumphant conquering of Las Vegas, Elvis features an all-star supporting cast including Shelley Winters as Gladys Presley, Season Hubley as Priscilla Presley, Bing Russell (Kurt's real-life dad) as Vernon Presley, Pat Hingle as Colonel Tom Parker, Joe Mantegna as "Memphis Mafia" member Joe Esposito, and Ed Begley Jr. as drummer D.J. Fontana. A tremendous achievement that garnered several Emmy® nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor for Kurt Russell, Elvis is a rocking good movie, fit for a King.
