Plot Summary
A documentary about the life and times of "The King", Elvis Presley. The film uses a variety of techniques to capture Presley's personality and persona: there are rare clips, home movies, dramatizations, and even an Elvis impersonator. Highlights include Elvis' early performances, his stint in the army, his controversial hip-swivelin' appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show", his 1968 comeback concert, the illustrious film career, the marriage to high-haired Priscilla, and his transformation into a bloated pill-popper, which led to his death in 1977.

Professional Reviews

Variety
"...Packed with enough fine music and unusual footage to satisfy anyone with an interest in the late singing idol..." 04/08/1981

New York Times
"...Mesmerizing, if not as a drama or documentary , then as an artifact....A gaudy, unforgettable story, and it's part of the story it tells." 05/08/1981 p.C8

Chicago Sun-Times 9 of 10
This is Elvis is the extraordinary record of a man who simultaneously became a great star and was destroyed by alcohol and drug addiction. What is most striking about its documentary footage is that we can almost always see both things happening at once. There is hardly a time when Elvis doesn't appear to be under the influence of mind-altering chemicals, and never a time, not even when he is only weeks from death, when he doesn't possess his special charisma. The movie's lesson is brutal, sad, and inescapable: Elvis Presley was a man who gave joy to a great many people but felt very little of his own, because he became addicted and stayed addicted until the day it killed him...This movie shows the disintegration and death of a talented man who backed himself into a corner. He did it his way. - Roger Ebert
